Cold

Today is January 3rd, and it is cold almost beyond description. But since I have a degree in English that I seldom use, I will dust it off and share a few adjectives that describe the weather. Let's see: frigid, blustery, numbing, bone-chilling – well, you get the idea. I'm not well-equipped for the cold. Being a flip-flop wearing summer girl, this is a tough time of year for me. I just want to bundle up until it's over! But, I have been working on my attitude. I think of how many people would love just one more day on this earth, one more day to wake up to a new sunshine, and yes, feel the chill of winter on their noses. If today were my last – I don't think I'd complain about the cold.
I find it very difficult anymore to go a day and NOT take a photo. Photography is therapy for me on so many levels. So I ventured as far as my front porch to get a few shots on this beautiful January 3, 2010. As the wind was paralyzing my fingers, I snapped a shot of the sky and sun – so beautiful in every season of the year, and one of my darling Dylan. Dylan, a boy of age eight, seems to be immune to Jack Frost – but that is the nature of boyhood I think – and I will save that for another post. Happy winter.

I was trying my darndest to get a picture of the astounding moon last night and could not find my monopod...it was soooo cold I was shivering too much!!! I noticed a bunch of groups doing 365 - a year in photos. I usually take a picture a day anyway...have been feeling a bit frustrated and not taking the camera anywhere lately.

Beautiful photos. It's frigid here too at 23 degrees with "snow fog". But it's not as cold as it felt in Kansas. Those prairie winds made everything more miserable!

Both of these are breathtaking shots.
