Invasion

Since becoming an iPhone user, I have developed a couple of addictions, like Instagram. I have found it to be an endless source of inspiration.

Like the beautiful photos from @Wattland, especially two wasps that I can’t get out of my mind. Her photos are a perfect mix of texture, blur and light. They seem to be moving very delicately.

It looks like I am creating an army of insects: it’s only my attempts to capture the essence of Wattland’s pictures. I am not there yet, but this challenge has stimulated me! I have to find a way to render this. I hope I will be able to show you a satisfying end result soon!

A walk on Mount Sutton

We took a walk on Mount Sutton this weekend, which is near to our house. We must have tried at least five times to explore the “dos de l’orignal” path (moose’s back) in the past two years and we had to turn back every time: hunting season, bears’ mating season, too many people, path closed to give the flora a chance to regenerate, etc.  But last Sunday, we were finally able to hike on this part of the mountain. We enjoyed the walk even more since it was our 15th anniversary!

These photos were taken last weekend; it was the first snow storm of the year. About time, the winter is almost over! There was (and still is) so much snow that even with our snowshoes on, the white fluffy flakes came up to our knees.

A couple of posts ago, I wrote about things that make me happy. One of them was snow, lots of it. The amount that fell down must have been equivalent to the moral boost I needed!

Yes, I plan on making this a monthly habit.  :-)
