winter bones {picture winter day 14}

winter bones
{better on black}

today, for picture winter, we were encouraged to go out and brave the cold and look for something beyond the chill to photograph. i went about eight steps from my door to get my shot. i was glad it was there, as i am too chilled myself to go on an adventure in search of a winter photo. this shrub always has pretty berries in the winter, thick green leaves in the spring and summer, and gorgeous vibrant reddish magenta leaves in the fall.

i had to use manual focus to get the nice effect i wanted... sharp detail on the berry with a blurry background. the lighting was not letting me manually focus today. {oh, how i want a better lens!}

short post today. my pregnancy nausea has crept back in for some strange reason. it's like one of my medium bad {five eight on a scale of one to ten} days from my first trimester. but i rarely have these now, unlike when i had them every day the first couple months. so i guess i can put up with it. hoping you are all well... enjoying the bones of winter... whatever that may look like in your neck of the woods.

sorry to not be able to visit all your blogs lately... picture winter has got me very busy!

a couple more takes...

That first photo has such a peace about it ... and Wyeth's quote has always been one of my favorite.

I hope you are able to get some rest today and the nausea subsides. Hope you are able to feel some more movement!!

Oh, these images are so gorgeous. And so peaceful. I love that you find the beauty of the winter months...and the colour, which can be difficult to find.
Beautiful.
