Let's Go For a Walk #3

I walked all three of my dogs simultaneously this weekend and I didn't have much time to take photos as loitering really wasn't an option.  The geese didn't seem to enjoy their company, either!  So, I used the "felicity" texture from Kim Klaussen Cafe and added a bit of orange in Photoshop - I forget exactly how (I just kind of stumble bumble along) to the above photo to "fix" it.

I have always been taken with this statue, and have tried many times to capture it in a photo.   It reminds me of my children when they were little and would run on the beach causing the flocks of seagulls to scatter up into the blue sky.  For this reason, even though I still think I can get a better capture, I am submitting this to the "Creative Exchange".

And just the simplicity of things I rarely "see" the beauty of in the spring, summer and fall.  But on a dull winter day, the sunlight reflected of this ivy growing on a tree (is it ivy?) struck me as quite lovley.

Loved this burst of yellow... and they were cold this morning as it went below 32 degrees and supposedly a few flakes of snow fell... I didn't see any, though.

Very refreshing, Margaret. I especially like the last two. You have quite an eye!

This is a wonderful series of photographs Margaret!
I love the statue, and the light you have captured in the last 2 is just beautiful. Sure could use some of that light here!! :-)

Thank you so much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

I am so happy to find another person who stumbles and bumbles along. When I finish there is no way for me to know what I really did along the way. Maybe in time I will know what I am about to do before I actually do it. Love all of your shots tonight. The ducks are so cute, the ivy with the light on it is lovely, the days are gorgeous with their warming yellows, and your black and white is so very nice. Great post. genie

The picture of the geese is like a painting!

Thank you! I do enjoy the light that is present in the south during the winter. Northern Michigan doesn't see the sun for MONTHS and I used to hate that.
