Some times it is good to slow down and just stop to focus on the wonderful little things life has given us. Happiness can be in the details.
Meet Gus he is a fun guy!! Sorry couldn’t help myself there. This fungus got a lovely ice coating last night on the limbs of a locust tree. I have so so many more photos of this. I think I spent well over an hour just on this one tree with all of it’s beautiful colors.
I found some wonderful old barns this last week and decided to play HDR with them. Normally I don’t HDR barns, maybe the idea never occurred to me when it comes to barns so I have never even bothered to bracket images while shooting them. Silly me! At least there is always Photoshop to adjust exposures on hind sight. I like the BW version for it’s stillness but wow all the colors that were pulled out from the color version is just short of amazing. Who knew barns had so many colors.. my barn of many colors that my mamma made for .. oh wait that was a coat not a barn.
I found this little road side park just north of Ava Missouri on Route 5. This is by far the prettiest road side stop I have came across in a very long time. Most likely all the recent rain has allowed this creek to enjoy the benefits of water and highly possible that the next time I pass this way this area will be all dried up for the season- all the more reason to enjoy it now!!!
