Sitting in the Winter Sun



The Mourning Dove is a regular visitor to the feeders in the back yard.  This one was trying to get some rays on the deck outside the kitchen sliders.   I love the soft grey browns in their colourations.

I just adjusted the levels and added soft light for more punch.   I am joining Chelsey at Paper Heart Camera for Touch Up Tuesday.    Have a great day.  Valerie

Hi valerie,

Thats a very cool shot. I guess your Camera must have very good zoom, coz I tried to take one close up shot like this but couldn't.

Hi Val
Looks like he's keeping his back side warm with heat from the bricks.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
