In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
Our temperatures have remained above freezing for the past couple of days and a lot of melting has been going on. This morning, I spied these pine cones peeking through the snow under a tree. The ice crystals in the melting snow also have an interesting texture. We must likely won't see scenes like this the rest of the week, as 5-10" of snow are predicted for tonight.
