THIRTY DAY CHALLENGE--A PHOTO A DAY--day one

Day one, sunrise through branches.

Caught a brief blink of the sun through the clouds and trees.  Was hoping for a pink sunrise for my first day  but Nature had other ideas.  Given an excuse to take photos the challenge may not be one photo every day for thirty days but editing all the pictures down to one.

So I'm adding a shot of  one of Olaf's friends who showed up after a heavy wet snow on Sunday.
When the sun gets up a little higher he'll be doing what frozen things do--in summer.

Hooray for creativity challenges! Take a pic of Olaf's buddy every day for 30 days...let's hope he only makes it to the weekend? I know, wishful thinking. Happy Spring to you!

I like the sunburst! That really is not easy to do. As easy as a snow man in summer, actually.

I think that's a great shot. I wandered my property yesterday in hopes of following your idea (doing something every day for 30 days). I like the photo every day idea. I couldn't find one thing I wanted to take a picture of that was very interesting. :(
Sweet Olaf. He just wants to go to the beach!

I like the snowman. I don't think that stick arm will hold him up.

Oh man, I love that first photo - is it just luck that the light makes that star form, or is there a trick to it? Good luck with the photo thing - I like creative challenges - they kind of help moving one forward, especially if one feels a bit down. But I hope you are not feeling down, no sirreee! Not with a snowman friend like that!

The star flare isn't as tricky as it looks. Just buy a star filter, screw it on over whatever size lens you have and, Voila! flares on every bright light in the frame. However, you need to be working with some kind of camera that can take a filter. That's why I still cart around my big Nikon when there are so many phone cameras and tiny digital ones available.

Leaning tower of snowman...poor guy. If he was in our back garden, he'd be standing at attention still. :)

I don't think you need to worry about that pink sunrise. This one was great.
