winter around these parts

while most of the country has been digging its way out of crazy snowstorms recently, things have been pretty uneventful in the northwest.  if anything, it's been slightly colder than we're used to, and by that i mean we may have had a few days where it got as low as the 20's and we cranked up the house temp from 70 to 72. 

ya, nothing too crazy.

we try to take advantage of every dry day we get in the winter, so when we have a weekend with no rain, it's cause for celebration and we try to at least get out for walk with our pups.

one of our favorite walks is a five minute drive from our house - a greenway/trail that makes its way along a river.  while i've often photographed it in the summer, i thought it'd be fun to see what the winter landscape would look like through my lens.


i discovered i'm beginning to like winter more and more around these parts.


Sweet Shot Day








 









the long road



and just for fun...pups discovering all sorts of intoxicating smells!  :)
