I LOVE This Weather!

We've had some nice weather (as opposed to the below freezing-ground covered with snow) for the last few days and I'm LOVIN it. It's been in the mid 50's to the low 60's and it's slowly climbing each day! I have three sessions to do on Thursday..so I'm hoping that the extended forcast is right in saying it's gonna be 64 and mostly sunny! :-)

Here are a few photos I took yesterday on my son and I's stroll:
The ever-continually awesome Ashley Sisk told me how to achieve this effect in Photoshop, she used it on a tree as well and I had a pine tree photo with a blown out background and used the "Invert" function at the bottom of the layers palette..I thought it was super neat how it came out..

I love these little things, they kind've remind me of carnations (key word-KIND'VE). But I like to photograph them.
Gum Balls
The gumball tree at the back of our property.
Bby boy
Little guy hollerin for the horses to come over-loved the creamy bokeh in this shot.
Country Living
One of my favorite {sweet} shots of the day I think. Dusky evening sky, horses' silhouettes against the beautiful blue sky!

LAST TIME you'll see one of these (promise!) I'm using it as my "Colorful" entry over at Simplicity Blog!


Lastly, my husband is of course my Valentine...BUT I decided to use this little card I made of my son as my "Valentine" entries for this week!

Really beautiful shots my friend.

OK, the Valentine's card is entirely too cute - and your naturey pics are lovely! LOVE the processing on the last one. The real reason I stopped by was to add you to my RSS feed. I tried a couple times before but it's not letting me. I'm wondering if it's on my end? I haven't had that problem before...just wondered if anyone else mentioned it? I need a little dose of your daily inspiration, and you know I get so behind on commenting back. I need your blog in my feed, right there in front of my face - LOL! Happy (almost) Friday! XOXO

These are such awesome shots, Nathalie! The red "gumballs" provide such a beautiful contrast against the blue of the sky... and that "inverted" shot is magical. =)
