Water Play


sometimes the sun comes out to play

yet Spring is often cloudy here:

rocks in pastel colors
are a wonderful sight

nights are cold
surface water freezes


freezes and thaws


the ever changing expressions of spring

  2. You must have some additional optical devices to the camera worthy to see. The pictures you take ... are simply wonderful.
    Have a good one, Tammie.

  5. Which make of lense? Tim has just bought a newer version of your camera body but is having massive problems with the lense. He was recommended to buy a Sigma and it is fuzzy and not sharp across the picture.

  17. What beautiful patterns the water makes on those coloured rocks which appear through the clear surface of the water as if a rainbow had left them behind for us to enjoy! Bubbles and small blocks of ice and spring snow on the hills - all reminders that things are gradually changing. We are getting a cold and cloudy spring too!

  44. Happy Spring to you too Tammie! Lovely images of your spectacular world. The 'rocks in pastel' with the snow covered mountains is utterly beautiful!! I hope you have good padding for your knees. The rocks remind me of beaches along Wellfleet and Truro on Cape Cod. What a palette. Gorgeous, gorgeous photography! Hugs from the North East where our snow has finally melted into the earth.

  51. Oh, Tammie! These are incredible. There is only one place in Oregon where the rocks are similar to what you have there--it is a river on the South Coast of Oregon.

    The colors you have captured enchant my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  52. wow! That first photo is beautiful.
    these rocks are the same kind we se in Nova Scotia, and somewhat like we see on the coast of Massachusetts.

Warm greetings to you~

Thank you for visiting and also for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Seeing through your eyes and heart mean so much to me!
