"Aspen Shroud" by Caryn Caldwell

First of all, I posted over on my regular blog. It’s a mock tutorial on how to cook oatmeal in the microwave. (Hint: Don’t do it the way I do.) Would love to have you stop by and weigh in on things you keep doing even though you know they’re doomed to failure. (Really, it’s more fun than it sounds!)

And now some news. As it turns out, winter is brown. And it is cold. And it is dark when I’m ready to go out and take pictures. As a result, I’m having a little trouble finding my inspiration. Pair that with a book I’d like to finish revising this year and a toddler who has not been napping, and I think I’m going to cut down to a once-a-week posting schedule, at least for the next few months. I would rather do that than post photos I don’t love (which is only fair to you, the viewer, too). Starting next week, you’ll find new photos by me posted every Wednesday morning. I also hope that this new schedule will allow me to visit all of you more frequently — something I have not done as much as I would like to because of time constraints. When the lovely spring returns, with all of its flowers and green things, and even butterflies, I should be back to my Monday/Thursday posting.



  1. Beautiful trees Caryn! I love Aspens. I only wish that they could grow in Alabama.

    • I love them, too, especially when they get that glowy yellow look. Though I bet you have some pretty trees there! Maybe ones that turn read in autumn? I miss those.

  2. this is really gorgeous, and yeah, it's a pity we don't have these in AL.. :)

    • LOL! Wonder how they'd do if you planted them. You never know!

  3. Stunningly beautiful..breathtaking color. What a gorgeous mountain image and scene!

    • Thank you so much, Marcie! It's one of my favorite spots to snowshoe. Obviously looked very different that day. 😀


    • Thanks! I think autumn is my favorite time up in the mountains because of all those colors.
