We got a little traveling in over the weekend. On Saturday we headed out for Jackson, Wyoming – also known as Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There we walked around town, ate at the Silver Dollar Bar, did some shopping, and drove around the Elk Refuge. We had made reservations to go snowmobiling on Sunday so we were excited to be there and get into some snow! Well, due to the little snow storm that came in early Sunday morning we weren’t able to make it to the snowmobiling adventure but we did get to see even more wildlife than the day before.
Here are some photos from our adventures! And I even have a guest photographer on this post – my Hubby!

For the photo challenge Lost In The Details I wanted to show some photos that I haven’t shared before while featuring the details of some of my favorite subjects. Here are a few for you to enjoy!
Home is where your heart is.
Home has several different meanings for me. It is the physical place that I share with my husband and all our four-legged children as well as our two-legged children. My heart is always with my husband so in that sense the arms of my husband are my home.
But to share in the challenge this week of home I thought I would share some of my favorite photos of home.
A lovely fall sunset from the deck.
November sunset at home
A snowy winter day on our pond.
A beautiful spring lily that grew in our yard.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Water. I like this challenge because it is related directly to the 5 Chinese elements. So Cee shared what those are/can be:
Sea, Ice, Storms, Rain, Steam, Fluid, Sound, Mist, Acid, Salt, Time, Pressure, Moon, Mirror, Snow, Frost, Sugar
I also wanted to go out of the norm and find those 3 photos that were not so obvious in the interpretation of water. I’ve chosen mist, ice, and moon.

An unknown berry found in a field during this past snow fall. Enjoy!
We had a snow here in Texas on Christmas Day. Technically, a white Christmas. It had it beautiful moments but wasn’t really heavy enough or cold enough to stay around long. So I did get a few photos to share with you of the smaller aspects. Here are some that I altered to black and whites.
This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge of Reflections was admittedly an easy one for me. But I don’t often like easy – they are supposed to be challenges. So I looked back in my photos to see if I could find a reflection that I might have missed. This is the one that I found. It is our own pond after a winter snow – which seems appropriate because it is a smoldering 29 degrees here, according to Swackett.
So excited to share with you that TWO of my photos were accepted to the finals of the WinterTide Arts Show in Hot Springs, AR at the Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs which will begin December 7 and run thru the 29th . This past March my photo “Thick Mist” was accepted to the finals of the Regional Show.
What exciting news!
The two photos are “Glenna’s Dogwood In The Snow” and “Snowy Seat”. Here they are:
from a winter snow back in 2011….
A fellow blogger suggested a challenge on the word reflection.
So here are a few of my photos on reflections.
I discovered this morning that even birds have facial expressions! Here are two photos of the same bird – note the face or eyes in each of the photos…
The last photo I posted a few days ago seemed to really capture some attention and I have a few more that I truly love! (Forgive me if I’ve posted them on here before. They also appear in my portfolio book on Blurb.)
This gorgeous bird – perhaps a cardinal??- I found in Beaver’s Bend last February. It was after a big snow but most of the snow had melted off. Hope you enjoy!
Sometimes I run out of creative names for photos – this is one of those times….
In our large front lawn there stands a dogwood, a favorite of my late mother-in-law (whom I did not have the blessing of knowing her except thru her children and grandchildren). Last year I happened to capture it over the 3 notable seasons: Spring, Fall and Winter. Enjoy!!
