    Spring wandering

    Every year, when cherry trees open their beautiful white flowers and enchant me with their charm, I feel compelled to go and capture the beauty. Last year I missed that occasion which doesn’t last very long but this year I took advantage of a nice weekend afternoon and asked my husband to go with me to the cherry tree orchard…

    Feel of winter

    One day when fresh snow arrived I decided to take a stroll around our village with my camera though I didn’t expect capturing much. Seemingly, there isn’t much to capture in the village after having lived there for a few years. Yet I was proven wrong once again because I “found” a few captures I really liked. For example this…

    Nearing the end of the year

    Christmas is over and I hope that you spent nice and peaceful holidays. Generally I do not enjoy the Christmas time much but this year it was different and I feel deep in my bones that though I’ve gone through many difficulties lately, there is also the good I’ve received and I’m grateful for that. During Christmas, dense fog was…

    Celebration of 90th anniversary

    The Volunteer Fire Company operating in our village has celebrated 90 years of existence since its founding. An official celebration was held and I and my husband were asked to come and take photos. We hesitated but were pleased by the invitation and finally made a decision to accept and give it a try. The first part of the celebration…

    Colours and light

    Returning to the day when I was taking the previously shared photos of the cherry tree orchard, a few more photos have been left which I’d like to share. We left the orchard and went in the other direction, through the village. In the meantime, the sky turned dramatic and the light changed, everything seemed much more prominent and colourful.…

    More spring sights

    On our way to and from the cherry tree orchard which I showed you in my previous post we saw much more than just the orchard. Near by the orchard there was a wet area spotted with plenty of marsh marigolds whose bright yellow flowers were shining in the grass. Blooming trees were all around and when I’m looking at…

    Cherry tree orchard

    There is a small cherry tree orchard by the village where we live and we were walking there a month ago. I didn’t take any photo in the orchard as I didn’t see anything what would have attracted my attention, I took just a few photos around. Like this one: Then the trees came into bloom and were visible prominently…

    April changes

    On 1 April which was the last Easter day we spent a few hours in the wood which is situated near our house. Although there were still some remnants of snow, the air wasn’t that cold and the walk was very pleasant. The only thing which made me feel a bit disturbed were traces of wild boars’ presence. They say…

    More snowy sceneries

    As I was looking through my archived photos when preparing the previous post, I came across photos I took in December 2010. They were taken in the village I live in on a frosty day of that month and I’ve already posted some of them in my posts Winter scenes and Second chance and also in my PF 2012 and…
