It’s almost the end of the year and with Christmas behind me it was time to get out of the house. A back country drive was in order. The weather was nice with a cloudy sky and no snow in sight, that is until I found these cattails.
With the cloud cover we had some beautiful light to photograph. A local farm had a couple of their horses in the field and we stopped to get some photos with this soft light.
Not to mention the light on the fences in the snowy fields.
Before heading home we stopped in Claireville Conservation Area to feed some of the locals.
The cute little chickadees love visitors, especially when they come to feed them some seed.
It’s a grey Sunday in the city and I have had enough of winter and cold temps. Most Sundays I try to stick close to home especially with the weather being so blah but today I had other plans. Brad Quarrington Photography put together a styled bridal shoot and invited me along for the ride. Thankful for the opportunity but wishing it was nicer out I drove northwards to Brad’s place and then to the farm he booked for the shoot. Whinny Acres Guest Ranch is a great place to visit and get your horse riding fix. They were amazing getting the horses ready and putting up with all of us (we’re not that bad, honestly). Our “bride” was lucky enough to get taken around on a horse drawn sleigh to all the sites we picked out on the large ranch.
Also in our favour was the lightly falling snow which stayed with us for the entire shoot. Dana Marlee looks amazing; those flowers are perfection and were supplied by Petal In Thyme. By the end of the shoot they were frozen solid. Poor things.
