Aspen Shroud

"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.

A pile of leaves found in an aspen forest near here. The water droplets are from a light rain that passed through shortly before I arrived – a storm that was still clinging to the nearby mountains.

Aspen trees glowing in the setting sun, with cloud-shrouded mountains behind them. Processed with a toned-down version of Pioneer Woman’s Old West action for a little different effect.

Also, sorry for being non-responsive on comments! I LOVE comments, but with this new system all messages went to moderation and I didn’t receive any notifications. Hoping the glitch is fixed now!

A single yellow aspen surrounded by pine trees, glowing in the light from the setting sun. Taken just down the road from my previous post.
