Softness Theme #276

June Bug's eyeThis is June Bug, one of my miniature mares.  I just love how soft her eyes are.  She is a quiet girl but always alert.  She is pregnant and due to foal at the beginning of May.  I included a picture of her running so you can see she is almost a round as she is tall!!  She is about 32″ tall at the last mane hair to give you an idea of height. 

June Bug preggo and running.

Artistic Barney in the snowThis is my big drafty boy, Barney looking thoroughly disgusted with the snow falling.  I played with some textures on the picture because I felt it didn’t have enough depth through all of the snow.  That is snow on his back and he is sick of it!!  I just love this boy, could never have enough pictures of him!

White Theme #359

This is the snow bank by our driveway.  The wind sculpted it and made this neat cave with the lip hanging over.  I love how it shows up blue in the shade.  I’m really tired of snow but it is really beautiful!!!

Since I don’t have a car I used my truck.  Can  you guess what it is?  My poor truck mirror yesterday.  Spring shming!!

Spring Theme #282

Posted in Photography on March 23, 2011 by paintedmeadows

I took these following pictures yesterday so you can see what our spring is like in northern Alberta!  This is our range road.  You can’t really see the depth of the snow but that car is on the road, not sunk in the ditch.  I thought she was in the ditch until the plow finally came.  I drive a big 4×4 so was doing OK but still had a hard time and used 4×4 low.

This was our secondary highway.  Lots of glare ice with the snow on top and no salt or sand yet.  Kind of scarey when you have an empty truck box.  I slipped and slid some but drove slow and took my time.  Here I had pulled over to let a big piece of oilfield equipment to pass.  I was screwing up courage to head out again and not go home.  I left the pictures dark because this is exactly how it looked.  It was windy, snow was drifting and it was snowing steadily although small flakes so it made the air look more foggy.
