January Photograph #4 - Nest



I have been taking my daily photograph or two. The cold is making it hard to be outside a lot. We have been hit by the cold spell here. It is in the middle to high forties and almost freezing at night. My bird bath froze over a couple of nights. Compared to most of the country we are fairing very well. When it gets cold like this the only thing I want to do is fluff my nest. So today that is exactly what I plan on doing. Hope every one is staying warm...

This is really a remarkable photo.
I do love the little girl in your collage, she is adorable. and you did a really sweet story around her.
It is cold, but it could be worse here, we have had highs in the 30's and lows in the teens.
It does make for a day of curling up with a book or something.
Hugs, Mary

I love this. Did you make that background or was it from a kit? Lovely.

Lovely image! We had a beautiful frozen fog this morning at 3 degrees. I just had to go out and capture it! Nothing fancy though. Quick out and then back in with a good book.

Beautiful tree...I love seeing trees in the winter, so moving.

I love the stark simplicity of this, and the understated, small-print "nest". It is one of those pieces one sees, and thinks "perfect" knowing not a single thing can improve on its perfection!

Beautiful picture. It makes me want to sit down by the fire and do it in embroidery. :)Bea

Now that is begging to be printed and framed!

I do admire your eye for photography. Winter and cold weather shoots can give such good visuals. I was out doing photos in minus 35 degrees on New Year's day--not so good for the hands!!

What a glorious, radiant photograph. Stunning.

This is a lovely slice of winter. Weather is a relative thing however. Up in Boston 40 would be a heat wave right now. The cold weather has crept down to parts of the country that are usually much warmer... very odd indeed.
Stay warm and cozy!
