A Day of Winter

We woke up to a blizzard today. They are extremely rare here. But I grew up with them and it's nice to have a day off and stay home.
These red house finches were trying to get out of the howling wind. Edited in Lightroom and Radlab.

 These guys have a texture layer by Kim Klassen, Sybil. Plus a dreamy gradient layer added. For the Texture Tuesday link up.

This guy was edited in Lightroom then Topaz Detail. Yes, I was all over the computer today. 


More textures, Isobel and Sybil. There are violas under that snow. They were smiling in the sun by 5PM.

 Thought it would be nice to have a little pink snow.  More textures, Cora 3 times, one with a hue adjustment, shown below. I just love these birds. They never fly away.

  2. Aww, sweet birds...your photos are lovely! We still haven't had a significant snow in Virginia this year...I'm wondering now if we will.

  3. So hard for me to believe so much snow, just gorgeous captures. I love those little birds, the first one looks like they are trying to huddle together to keep warm.

  6. How do you people do it -- getting birds to stay put do to capture them -- I love this image of the three birds.. and how you soften the look to become a dreamy feel.. Great photo images ( all of them)..

  16. Those red finches are very charming! They remind me of the sweet birds with some red color in their wings, I admired in my childhood in the Easter vacations in Lapland - maybe the snow and your birds in a flock made this association! I found a picture of this bird called "Kuukkeli" : http://www.ollikorhonen.com/takaisin-kuukkelieni-luo/

  18. Really pretty, Roxi ... Love the birds, and the textures you used for them! Stopping in from Kim's again this week - only from my new site on Blogger. Think I like it better than Wordpress, but I'm still deciding! :) You have a great weekend!
