Late Winter Sunset

Once in a while a sunset grabs my attention.

And doesn't let go.

Cold Morning at the Provo City Center Temple

The sun had risen by the time I left the temple this morning.

I took many pictures of water in the fountain.  Mesmerizing.

Beauty remains all winter on these grounds.

It is so cold that this snow, which fell four days ago, is still in place.

Snow on a Monday Morning

Our snow fell yesterday, on Christmas morning.

The sun did not come out from behind the clouds until today.

I took a little walk.

Interesting clumps of snow caught my eye.

This almost reminded me of cherry blossoms.  Almost.

The mountains are always beautiful.
 
It won't be long before the snow falls from the trees.  Maybe we'll get some more.

Early Morning at the Temple

I'm an early morning person, however the lights for the Nativity are not awake at 5:15.

The gates to these grounds are not unlocked until 5:30 am.  I have learned to park in the underground garage and walk up the stairs.

I needed a tripod this morning but did not have one with me.  I used a handy bench.

I am still in awe of this temple.

Chasing Pigeons, and a Hungry Egret

I took a grandson on a walk this morning.

We came across a flock of pigeons.

Ben is saying, "Honk!  Honk!"

The birds kept returning, so Ben kept running.

I love the look of determination on his face.

Of course, now I'm thinking, "Can we try this again during the golden hour?"

On our way home, I spied an egret in the distance.  I carefully aimed my camera, perfectly framing the bird and his reflection, when he decided to grab a snack.

Owls in the Dark

As a grandmother, I frequently have opportunities to take pictures a little outside of nature.  These two owls were in a nocturnal exhibit at Cameron Park Zoo in Waco.

The Heron Felt Safe on Thanksgiving Day

A nature walk this morning brought me almost face to face with a heron.
Elegant and graceful, he was joyful to watch.
