Winter on my mother-in-law’s farm can be brutal! But our boys beg to go each year just to play in the snow! We all freeze and have a blast! Taken with a Nokon L310 in Winthrop, Washington, USA.

I have had a camera in my hand since the late sixties! Recently someone looked at a photo display I had in a coffee shop and got goose bumps. All I try to do is to capture various aspects of God’s amazing creation and let you also enjoy what I am seeing! If you get goose bumps, that’s great. But remember I only capture what he created. He creates, I capture, we enjoy.

    This is a delight. Lovely. Lovely. I am starting an ink and paint class. I am a real beginner. I need to draw a building scape. This is a perfect inspiration for that. I am going to use it for my practice. I hope you won’t mind. I definitely won’t be selling any work from it. Trust me. :) Thank you so much for your unknown support of my new pursuit. Should I end up one of America’s ink drawing masters, I will give you credit, ok? :)

  • Hi Lucin, I am glad you enjoyed this pic. Too bad it was taken with such a crummy camera. I would love to see your final product (or a pic of it, anyway). No need to give me credit, but I do want you to create it in a snowsuit! :<} That’s how I took it as it was VERY cold, in the low teens when I took this shot!

    I can see the appeal for the youth to want to explore and play in that lovely setting, and wonderful photo ops for you! Growing up in So Cal, I would be at a loss to deal with it every day during the winter. Beautiful capture, Randy:) Sandy
