Winter Has Arrived

I know that the weathermen don't admit to a Christmas snowfall, but we saw it, even if late in the day. The next morning, what to our wondering eyes did appear, but bright white, fluffy snow. Happily, I had my trusty camera to capture some of it before it became messy. A few are below:

Fall Art Walk

The next Art Walk is coming soon to downtown Concord. I will be creating some prints on canvas in 16 x 24 size and some will be smaller on glossy 11 x 14 size. Still determining which is which, but the lineup is below. The 16 x 24 follow in the first group.

 Then there are the ones probably to be printed in 11 x 14 size:

Autumn Art Walk

The next Art Walk in Concord is scheduled for the end of August, and I am readying some pictures of summer's colors. Here are a few below, beginning with Summer's Parasols, captured in Canada while we were visiting there.

 Next, some brilliant colors mixing together to produce a dazzling array to treat our eyes.

Next is a picture of a secluded retreat, formed by twisted branches and protective leaves, giving shelter.

And then, one of my favorite subjects, the flittering critters that grace our garden:

Next, a little moisture makes any flower look bright and lovely.

And lastly, a slight color addition to a background provides delight.

Night Events

While traveling back from Canada, we stopped to visit our daughter and her husband in Montross, Virginia. Because of generally low light pollution at their place, which is on the water, we have been able to get nice night-time pictures, like this moon shot below:

So, on this trip, we got to watch some fireworks on the 4th, sitting at the edge of the Potomac, watching thousands of dollars go up, literally, in smoke and flames as people on both sides of this great river fired off their rockets.

And then they were done. We returned home to their place and I was dazzled by the night sky, and the visible stars that we rarely see at home because of light pollution.  So I ventured to take a few simple time exposures, pointing the camera skyward.

More Dragons

Another dragon whirling about, alighting occasionally to delight the eye.

Another possibility for the next Art Walk. I love dragons, and this guy is especially cute.
