To Everything There Is A Season

Winter time in southern Manitoba results in a lot less photo opportunities than I would like. Never the less, there are still some spots of beauty and interest. 
On a recent Sunday afternoon drive I was able to get a few such shots. 


This little old building sits in the middle of a field. I think it must be an inconvenience for the farmer to work around it, but I am glad he has left it there.

Here, I have zoomed in some more to show the building itself.


A little further down the road a small flock of Wild Turkeys were feeding on a few leftover seeds they could find. These birds have beautiful iridescent feathers.


Later that day, I waited for the sunset and while I did, I was able to capture this shot of a partial moon.


The sunset, although not super spectacular, was still pretty.


I may think the winter drags on, or that there is a lack of things to photograph, but God's Word says:
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven
Ecclesiastes 3:1

  3. You found plenty of good shots! I love this tiny building and tree. It is so small, I wonder about it's history. The moon is gorgeous! It is extremely hard to capture a daytime moon.

  4. I'd prefer winter sunsets. The cold makes the sky purple often. Fantastic scenes Ruth.

  5. The old building and tree make a pretty photo and a nice sanctuary for some birds. Maybe swallows nest there.

  14. The colors and contrasting textures in your opening shot are captivating. That scene is something I would never get to see in coastal Mississippi. Thanks for the brief winter wonderland visit that gives pleasure while I can still stay warm.

  15. I think it is all beautiful...winter has some amazing photograhpic opportunities. Love the old building...my imagination runs wild when I see a place like that...I like to wonder about who lived there and what was their lives like...was it a house or a barn? Anyway, at one time it was a part of someone's every day existence..."if these walls could talk"...The sunset is gorgeous, and so is the moon. You have a wonderful camera! I can't get good moon shots with such detail. And I love the turkeys. Glad they found something to eat in all that snow. Please don't sell yourself short...these are fantastic photos!
