Winter beauty....

One of the gifts that I received from my husband for Christmas was a new Nikkor 40mm 2.8 prime lens.  I've enjoyed playing with it.  Today I took a few moments before I began the busyness of the day to capture the beauty that can be found in my own backyard even in the bleakness of winter.  (All three photos were edited with Kim Klassen's Monday texture.)

still following,


  1. Beautiful! You would have had a great time in my aunt and uncle's winter garden with your new lens.

  2. Beautiful photos and beautiful editing. I so enjoyed getting Kim's free textures few years back. A new lens would be awesome. Looks like it works great. :)
    Thanks for visiting and linking.

  3. These are lovely, Elizabeth! Nicely done!

  4. Great job on the edits. I like the textures.

  5. Your photography is wonderful, Elizabeth. I always love to see it. And you use Kim's textures beautifully. I have drifted away from texture edits, and I think I want to return. :-)

    1. Well, I still don't have Lightroom so I use what I have.

  6. Very nice winter captures! I like to find flowers that are 'past their prime' but won't let go of the original shape, like the hydrangea.

  7. So lovely! Love all the texture work!

  8. The texture edits are beautiful! Congratulations on your new lens. You are doing a great job with it!

  9. Your photos are gorgeous !!
