Spring Photo Shoot

  Early spring is probably one of my favorite times of the year. Trees are beginning to bud, flowers start blooming, and the best part of all is that there are hardly any bugs!
  I had the idea for this post when I noticed that one of the big crop fields, just down the road from my house, had thousands upon thousands of little purple flowers growing in it; so to me it seemed silly not to have a photo shoot. So as soon as I was able, which was the next day or so, my sister and I headed out for what has become one of my favorite photo shoots yet.
I love it how you can see the flowers stretching off into the distance.

  What looks like a head band in her hair is actually a white scarf.

And we decided that it would make a nice prop to work with.

Because of all the wind it made for some really nice shots.

  Even though I got a lot of good shots it wasn’t all that easy, I still ended up taking over 300 pictures in about an hour and a half.

  But I must say out of all those pictures I took, this next one is probable my favorite, and I’m not sure why. We were done with the shoot and heading back home and my sister was in the middle of climbing over a fence and for some reason it just seemed like the picture perfect moment…

Photo Journal ~ Spring has Sprung

The reason I put “Photo Journal” before my title is because, like all my other Photo Journal posts, I took all these pictures in one day (March 8th) instead of over a period time like I normally do. And I thought that giving a title at the end instead of a number made it more unique.

Despite Winter’s last efforts to give off a frosty chill, Spring has come, and I can prove it to you.

 This morning I awoke to see that a thin coat of sleet had covered the ground last night.
 As you can tell someone was already ready for Winter to be over.

Even though it was freezing outside, I couldn’t help but notice that everything looked a bit greener and that new plants were pushing through the ice.

I also noticed that some plants look really “cool” when their covered in ice.

  Now I mentioned springing and sprunging (and yes I know this is not a word) and it just so happens that while I was outside, a couple of my horses were being playful and bouncing around, obviously enjoying the weather, so camera in hand I took a few shots (like fifty or so) and decided to use them for the Sprung part of this story…

I can’t help but laugh every time I see this last one…
You must be this tall before you can ride the ride.”

Okay that’s it for now, so until next time…
