Snow and red berries

Upon arriving to work this morning I saw where we had a fresh layer of snow that was very sparkly with the morning sun.  There are a few red berries left on the bushes out in front of the store and the snow in contrast to the red was quite pretty.  After adjusting the settings on my camera, I came up with this photo.  I really like it and will probably print and frame it.

I've been watching tutorials and reading up on different ways of lighting a subject. I thought I would practice what I've been learning. I had my boys pose for me one Saturday afternoon and I came up with these photos. I am very happy with the results and have since printed the photos out to hang on my wall here at work.

I have this thing with taking photo's of my Hydrangea bush.  It is such a pretty plant. The one that I have is called "Hydrangea Arborescens, Annabelle".  It is very hardy where I live and has grown quite large.  I may try to transplant part of it this year.  Which means I need to do some research on the correct way and  time to do this.

I took this photo last year and after playing with it a little bit, I ended up with a photo that I love and will be printing, framing and hanging on my wall!
