Snow, Mud, Wine … Scavenger Hunt Sunday!


Scavenger Hunt Sunday
In my scavenger hunt selections of late I had been going with a search for it approach, but this week I am straying off and picking random shots that I have wanted to share!  These are from this fall and some more recent.  Enjoy!  Please leave a comment if you stop by — I love photography and sharing my stuff with all of you — Thanks for stopping by!!  🙂


Before and After,
This is my interpretation of before and after because There is no editing work on my photos -they are all “SOCC”  Maybe someday I will have time for editing and playing with photography.  Life is so busy!
I love to photograph where I live, the woods surrounding our home is just so beautiful.  But recently we were hit with a freak snowstorm where we received 2 feet of heavy wet snow.  It was so heavy that the trees bent and broke and it reeked havoc with the power and cable lines.  We were out of power for almost 7 full days.  Thank God for our generator and wood stove to stay warm.  
Here is one of my favorite shots of Schuyler’s first day of school walking down the driveway.  

Here is the after shots of what the snowstorm looked like in that same spot overlooking our neighbor’s house at the bottom of the driveway.  LINK HERE to more of the craziness that our area saw when the snow came to town!  


 Opposing Lines, 
DISH restaurant in downtown Hartford CT.  Celebrating with a friend and checking out their wine selection…. opposing lines or opposing circles… I just loved this shot.


 Which Pair of Shoes Should I Wear?
This is my favorite shoe photo of all time.  I am not sure if you have read about my first ultra marathon – the Vermont 50…. it was quite the day!  Read on HERE if you want to know more…& link here for the video montage of me running!. These Inov8 MudRoc trail running shoes were a last minute selection due to my tweet conversations and really wanting to pick the right shoe for the job.  These shoes rock!  No pun intended.  And I was FAST!  4th woman overall 1st in age with an “8 handle” 8 1/2 hours!  🙂  So I surely DID pick the right shoes.  🙂


 Little Features
I love this photo.  It is the little features about this photo that I love… the contrast in the yellow /black outfit with matching shoes and glove.  The NCAA insignia on the ball so clear and smack dab on that line.  The angles and the power of the goalkeeper’s body to hit the ball on the sweet spot.  This is the UMASS goalie kicking the ball and he was an amazing kicker.  Schuyler was the ball boy that day they played Charlotte and I got to take photos…. here is a link to the album if you want to see more.  I don’t know any of the athletes…. but they were all amazing in my eyes!  I love action shots and photographing these boys in the air! 🙂
