Creative Hiatus

Well it's been a very long time since I have blogged and I don't think I have touched card making supplies in 3 months and have only dabbled here and there with jewellery. It seems my creative interests go in cycles and right now I'm stuck on photography...night photography to be exact. I've been driving around at all odd hours of the night, scouting out different places to practice my photography skills. Two things I have learned is 1) the weather at night drastically varies from one place to another (we're talking kilometres here) Yup, lots of places that would be perfect for shots have fog at night. 2) For someone who is terrified of the dark, taking night photos isn't exactly the most relaxing hobby. I have come up with an easy solution for number 2, which my husband laughed wholeheartdely when I told him what I was doing. I have figured out the art of raising one's tripod through the sunroof of my car, with camera attached and therefore eliminating the need to get out of the car in the dark :) I live in the countryside and have heard too many packs of coyotes over the years (and at areas I have taken photos) to ever want to step foot out of my car. If I'm lucky though and the skies are clear and on an evening that my hubby doesn't have to work the next day, then I'll just drag him along with me, which enables me to actually get out of the car. He is the dedicated super flashlight holder and noise maker to scare off any wild creatures.

Anyways, here are some of my favourite shots 
over the past 3 months, enjoy!

Sun Rays


Moon and sunset

Milky Way over the Atlantic Ocean
Star Trails

Pinks and purples of northern lights on top of cell tower hill
Lonely bird on a wire at sunset
Selfie with rising sun
Headlights of truck flying by with Milky Way

Thanks for stopping by and have a great creative week!
