A Picture is Where You Find it!

It's Cold!

On a very cold snowy day over the recent holidays, I went out for a wonderful walk in the fresh snow.  It was going to be about 3 miles and I was eagerly anticipating some great shots of birds in the snow.  As it turned out, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Returning home I was bummed out!  What a waste of my time – not even a single shutter snap!  As I walked into the house, grumbling to myself about the poor time I just had, I happened to look out the window – and look what I saw!  This poor Dove sitting right by the heated bath trying to warm up – what a great natural shot – and it was just waiting for me!

I should have enjoyed the wonderful winter hike for what it was, if a picture presented itself – great – if not, enjoy the walk itself!  The pictures will be waiting for you when they’re ready – you don’t always have to work so hard it – especially if it can start to take the fun and wonder out of the hobby.
