Now that it is spring and heading into summer here in Northern California, I can reflect positively on our long, gray winter. It was a rough one for me as Seasonal Affective Disorder insidiously paid me a visit.
Not one for sitting around feeling sorry for myself, I ventured outdoors with hubby on some of the rare, cold sunny days. In January and early March, we took short road trips.
In the photo above, my camera worked overtime capturing shots of ducks, geese and other birds enjoying the full reservoirs at Colusa Wildlife Preserve. I also got a beautiful reflection of the stark winter trees shown in the gallery below.
On this trip our purpose was to meet the breeder to pick up our new pup, Brodie. If I am to reflect on my gray winter, the bright spot was certainly chasing a rambunctious puppy around.
You can read more about Brodie and Aero in this recent post by fellow blogger Lori Strobel in her monthly Waggleview series. Please stop by and visit her blog!
On my daily walks with Aero, even sometimes in the rain, or right after a good downpour, I managed to catch some more shots of trees Reflecting in leftover puddles.
Of course I had to throw in the photo of me reflected in the mirror as I strained to get as many green photos as possible on our day trip to Sutter Creek in the Sierra Foothills!
Tomorrow is my last day of lecturing for the semester! This weekend, I am heading out for some windsurfing and stand-up paddling and hope to reflect on my water exploits. Have a fab weekend!
