winter palette

cool blues
winter greens
whites
slivery frost
shadows

this will be the first winter i will actively search out the beauty in winter rather than run fast toward spring.   trying to adjust my eyes to a new color palette.  not an easy thing for a girl who LOVES yellow.  i am guessing i will turn more towards tiny details.  i am finding it harder and harder to shoot.  the obvious grandeur of fall is gone.  the assault of beauty over. i find myself straining. my hope is it will come, that my eyes will adjust just like they do in the dark.  slow to come, but if i am patient, my eyes will adjust and focus again.

Oh you will, you will and if you ask me, your eyes HAVE already adjusted. Your shots are amazing, always!
I think once you get a nice blanket of white you'll be clicking away faster than ever. Right now we are in teh wet, muddy stage of winter and I am looooonging for some pretty white.

Hey, maybe try some still lifes or something. Love the lip balm pic we used in our dip.
Mwah,

You are having such a good winter attitude! Inspiring me to work on mine. It's waffling between rain/freeze/and snow here around and around this morning. *sigh*

yes - your palette has definitely changed. i will miss all those gorgeous fall colors, but looking forward to some cool inspiration. speaking of yellow, i just read yesterday that the color "mimosa" will be THE color for 2009.

i think you've already adjusted. these blues, these winter greens are so pretty. you make them pop. it is a bit like seeing in the dark, squint a little and you will find it! this mosaic is wonderful, makes me want a candy cane.
