Good Morning Snow!

Good Morning Snow! 

This was the view outside my bedroom window this morning. Jeff took the screen off the window, and I could take pictures with my pjs on....and keep warm at the same time. My kind of winter photography. haha

Salt Pond Beach, Kauai

Now can we just go back to Kauai to relax on the beach, reflect on a wonderful Thanksgiving, and recuperate from an exhausting Black Friday?? 
 Pretty please with sugar on top!

Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope you are able to spend the day enjoying the blessings of gathering with family and friends, eating good food, having fun, laughing out loud, watching children play, sharing memories, maybe taking a nap, but especially having a grateful heart for life, liberty, and being able to pursue what makes you happy.... (This might help with the laughing part.  'Still life' taken on my kitchen table in natural light:)

Napali Coast, Kauai

Napali Coast, Kauai
as seen from Kalalau Lookout

We sailed in a catamaran to go snorkeling and then to view the Napali Coast, but the ocean was so rough and the sun so intense that there was no chance of taking any decent photos. But on another day I was well rewarded to get this view of the coast from Kalalau Lookout. This scene took my breath away! The soft overcast day and a polarizer filter on my camera lens really made the lush green foliage and brilliant aqua ocean pop with color.

Supermoon Over Emery, Utah

Supermoon Over Emery, Utah

I felt guilty standing at my front door to take a shot of this beautiful moon, (last post). TOO lazy! So yesterday afternoon I took a little trip to tiny Emery, Utah, population under 300. My husband's grandparents homesteaded there and Jeff spent his childhood summers down on the farm. This is the old church (now on the historic register I believe), where he went to church on Sundays and watched movies on Wednesdays.
