Hydrangea in Snow

Something new for 2011 is Project 52 - a photo a week for a year.   Winter will be my biggest challenge but I think I can manage at least ONE photo a week.  By the end of the year, I hope to have a collection of images that will reflect the year; something personal that I can look back on.  I love the texture and color of dried hydrangeas and thought they looked pretty with a dusting of snow.

Thank you for your comments on my frosty photos in my previous post.  I'm running way behind with visiting your blogs; some weeks there just aren't enough hours in the day!  This weekend I'm going to be working on my website.  I hit a bit of a wall with it before Christmas and haven't touched it since.  Wish me luck!

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Such a wonderful, romantic, vintage photo. I really love it Lynda!

    I certainly know how you feel about a lack of time. So often life just takes over and there's not much you can do about it.

    Best of luck on your website! I'm going to check out Project 52.


  2. Always wishing you all the best with every new project. This is such a soft and lovely photo...you're so right, hydrangeas do look wonderful in the snow.

  3. My Dear Lynda, It will be on my list of things to do...look at your weekly photo...so if it's on my list..you must have it on your's...dont forget!
    Your long time friend,

  4. Beautiful shot. I am doing a 365 project. But maybe I should have tried the 52 instead. LOL. good luck with your 52!!

  5. You are off the a beautiful start. I hope to take a mini vacation with you each week to see where you take us.

  6. ahhhhh,so romantic!!!..I simply adore these pictures Lynda!
    talking about been short of time...i think we are all inside the same boat. ;D

  7. I could crawl into each of your photos and live...

  8. wow.... i need to try and learn taking pics like this.

  9. I love the contrast of the cold white snow with the color of the leaves, these warm tones leave us an attractive and interesting image.

  10. Hi Lynda, I love your quote by Elliot Erwitt. Your photography is beautiful, my first visit to your blog and a lovely surprise. Carla

  11. Your image is simply gorgeous. I love dried hydrangeas too...they have a papery delicacy that is irresistible to photograph....a man found me on his driveway a month or so ago, photographing his hydrangeas. He gave me a funny look, wondering why I was taking pictures of dead flowers. If only he could see the beauty!

    A photo a week...that sounds like a wonderfully manageable project. Enjoy!


Thanks for visiting! ♥
