A Cold Foggy Morning ..

Hello my dear friends,

have you ever said to yourself  "I wish I would have ..."! I have several times in the past. I wish I had stopped the car and or I wish I would have gone back and done that or I wish I had my camera with me! ...This would have been one of those times if I wouldn't have said to myself  "Do it!". And it doesn't have to be about anything crazy ... maybe a treasure you could have picked from the side of the road or a picture you could have taken.

I was driving home from grocery shopping with my daughter Ashleigh a week ago one cold and foggy early morning. We didn't drive the normal route but I decided to take the back road that went past  a golf course and some open countryside. Whilst driving down this road I caught a scene in the corner of my eye as I went past a stream that didn't want to leave my mind. On arriving home I was umming and arring if I should go back or not with my camera to capture what I saw. In the end I decided to go  back and I am so happy I did. I had to park my car on the icy edge of the road and walk down the path of a hill that was very slippery and cars that were too close to comfort at times but I wanted to take those pictures!
And this is what I saw ...


This last photo has a neat little story to it ...

... on our way home we had to stop at a set of traffic lights when I again caught something in the corner of my eye which was the scene you see in the photo above. I almost shouted at my daughter ... " Grab the camera, take a picture of the fence ~ quick before the lights change!" ... and she did! Didn't it turn out amazing?!
So I guess what I am saying is, that at times do go back and don't miss out because you have to go out of your normal way a little. I am sure you will be rewarded in the end for it like I was with these lovely photos I captured. 
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
Karen B.
