Snapping Photos

I may have mentioned this before, but I enjoy snapping shots with my camera when I have a spare moment or two.

Recently, I’ve been trying to capture an assortment of images. I find they come in handy with book covers and promotional pieces since I like to use original artwork.

I thought I’d share a some of the random photographs I’ve taken recently. Hope you enjoy them!

(By the way, all the photographs are copyrighted so if I catch anybody using them, I’ll hunt you down and beat you with a wet noodle.)

A thistleOne of the apple orchards near our house has a single thistle growing along the edge. I liked the contrast of the green and purple against the brown cheat grass background.

(And please nobody tell my Dad I took a photo of this instead of chopping it down with a shovel.)

Tamra and LukeA photo from my cousin’s lovely outdoor wedding, held on the edge of the woods. The day was overcast and cloudy, threatening to rain. Then, right before the ceremony began, the sun came out and  shined down a blessing the remainder of the evening. Congrats, again, L & T!


CC and I drove past this old barn a few weeks ago on a road we rarely travel. I snapped this shot out the window of the car, but still liked the look of the weathered wood against a blue sky and green fields.

Sagebrush, horses, windmachines, hills

A few weeks ago, I needed a photo of an uncut hayfield. After driving 17 miles around the back roads in our neck of the woods, I finally found one. On my way home, I stopped and took this photo. I don’t know why I love it so, but I do. Between the sagebrush, the horses, the rolling hills and wind machines, it’s got a little bit of everything to offer.


Bowl of mini rosesHave I mentioned my roses lately? I don’t know if it was the wet spring we had or the fact our temperatures have been mild up until this week, but my roses have been blooming profusely and beautifully. I absolutely adore these little miniature roses.


The other night as I sat with CC in the family room, I glanced out the patio door and noticed the sky looked like cotton candy. I grabbed my camera and hurried outside. When I walked around the corner of the house, I was greeted by this…

A Sunset twoAs amazing as it may seem, this photo is straight out of my camera with no adjustments to anything. The sky really was that beautiful with vibrant colors and wispy clouds as the sun set.


Much to CC’s dismay, I’ve also been playing with my tripod.

On a completely unrelated note, I have something super exciting to share with you tomorrow and can hardly wait! Check in tomorrow morning for the scoop!
