5 Random Friday Finds

In keeping with my vow to appreciate the beauty of winter this year, here are a few finds from this past week.

Find No. 1


I find beauty in the simplicity and barrenness of winter. I find this shot very peaceful.

Find No. 2


I found a dog not to happy to be tied to a tree while I climbed through some snow drifts to get down to the beach and Lake Michigan. I was only thinking of him and his old dog hips.

Find No. 3


I found a frozen channel, a big red lighthouse and a lovely sky. That is suppose to be the water filled channel on the left hand side of the the blue railing.

Find No. 4


I found on a chilly -2 degree morning a beautiful sunrise.

Find No. 5



I found some beautiful frost on one of my outdoor light fixtures just by walking out my garage door.

See...winter beauty is all around us. All we have to do is be looking for it.

  18. Your images are so beautiful, and I appreciate your willingness to be out in such a cold, icy world to take pictures that I can admire while sitting in my warm house. I will have to be satisfied with enjoying the scenes of winter vicariously... we have not seen winter yet, but I'm sure it is on its way.

  27. Sarah, You have really found your own style as a photographer! It seems to be you that you are using photography in it's most powerful capacity, to expand your vision and your appreciation of what is. It's fun to dream, but it's also incredibly rewarding to find joy with what is right before you - and you are doing that with each of your finds today. Absolutely beautiful images!
