Branches & Wires

 I guess it would be fair to say that we have been trapped today. Snowed in. This is why we could not get up to the hill when I saw the beautiful sunset. I had to snap it from the back door. So now you see why we have to go somewhere else to snap the sunsets!




If you look closely at a tree, you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.

Beautiful! Well worth snapping from your back door.

Even your sunset photos from home are better than the view I can get from here. Everyone was pretty much snowed in here yesterday. Things should be moving again today though.

Imo, no need to find somewhere else, the sky is beautiful.

I think sunsets through the trees are beautiful too.... in winter! Ours are the same way. When the leaves are down, for winter, we can see them pretty well... but come summer, they disappear. Keep warm & safe! ~Andrea xoxo

Tree silhouettes can provide some drama to a photo as well, especially set against such a background!

You still managed to capture the beauty of the sunset.

Gorgeous sunlight ❤️

Gorgeous anyway.
That's the way I am able to capture most of my shots too.
Sorry you are trapped . Be cozy, safe and warm. It gives you a chance to get a few around the house photos instead.

But how exciting to be snowed in! It's been a long time since I've experienced that. We are due for a flake or two tonight. Hope you're doing well, Ginny xoxo
