Frame It Friday (week 2, season 2)

#FrameItFriday (week 2, season 2)

So, how did your first week of the new year go? For those of you with school aged kids, I'd imagine you're relieved they're back in class. Things are becoming a routine again, back on track for the new year. Perhaps you're just over a week into a new year's resolution you set for yourself....how's that working out for you? I'm just happy to get out of the house a bit and capture some of the winter beauty. Although, having said that, I did begin a purge throughout the house. I started like gangbusters but by yesterday I ran out of "selective steam". What I mean by that is I wasn't as eager to part with some things as I was in the beginning. I will have to wait until the mood strikes me again and I get annoyed with all the "stuff" we seem to keep in our cupboards and closets and shelves. In between purges I hit the road for some shots and test out my snow tires along one of those "use road at own risk" roads. The end I entered had seen some traffic so I wasn't worried about getting stuck. Obviously others had ventured down it, there were lines of pine trees and fresh snow....I'll drive along it and get one of those frosted snowy tree shots. About a 100 yards in I felt regret. My fingers tightened on the steering wheel, the butt end of my car sashayed through the tracks. I thought if I stopped I'm screwed, I can't turn around or I'll get screwed and CAA won't come down this road. I passed 5 or 6 stacks of fresh cut trees, a huge logging truck and a couple of big tough looking pickup trucks.....it was after that, the road got worse. After the snowmobile passed I was sweating bullets, my hands locked on the steering wheel, eyes straight.....the heck with the frosted snowy pine tree shots....how much further did I have to go to get to the paved road?? All the way along the road I was telling myself off for going down there and that I'd NEVER do that again....ya right....until spring. None of this really has anything to do with this specific shot other than the fact the road it was shot on is also a use at own risk road but a far tamer version. Don't you think the icy bush resembles coral? I do. Look at me, babbling on and on......geesh...."a picture is worth a 1,000 words" not "a picture AND a 1,000 words." Have a good week, stay safe.
