Grand Opening


PAD March 28, 2011

Maybe it’s  because of all the leaves and wildflowers that we’ve seen opening on our walks these days, but I’ve been inspired to start a new blog devoted to my Radnor Lake photos. This week is the grand opening of Radnor Reflections, the Lake Effect. I will keep Lightdance for all my non-Radnor photos, but I’ll be posting everything I take at Radnor to the new blog, and gradually moving all past Radnor photos to it.

I invite you to click on the link to my new blog, Radnor Reflections. Today’s photo there is a single larkspur bloom. In a few days the hillsides will be purple with them, and I will post a photo of it in Radnor Reflections.


Snow Forecast

Snow scene

PAD December 31, 2010

Another snow scene brought to you by OnOne PhotoTools. I was only kidding about inserting snow into all my pictures from now on. Tomorrow I’m planning to post a still life of some Christmas ornaments in a bowl on my dining room table, and while the snow looked great in it, the origin of it is a bit puzzling. It’s good to plan to try new things, though, especially on the eve of the New Year. Last year I planned to post a photograph a day for the whole year, and I did it! It was a good plan that I enjoyed so much that I’m going to do it in 2011 as well. This is a formal announcement of that intention.

I have another blog that I write about photography, art, family, and travel that I have neglected, maybe because posting an image a day does take some time. I am also making an announcement of  my intention to post in that once a week. I don’t want it to be rigidly tied to the calendar, however, so that might mean none for three weeks and then three posts at once. Anyway, that’s my plan, my New Year’s Resolution.

Thank you to everyone who looked in on either one of my blogs in 2010. I appreciate being part of your day and sharing the things that interest me. To my friends whose blogs I follow, and to the new people I’ve met through their blogs, keep on writing! I look forward every day to your photography, creativity, humor and unique slant on life.

Redbud in Snow

Winter Landscape

PAD December 30, 2010

We see the distinctive Redbud seed pods on trees all over Radnor Lake now that the trees are bare of leaves.  We started our walks last spring after the Redbuds bloomed, so it will be a new treat to see the purple blossoms painted in among the branches in a few months. The snow was created with an OnOne PhotoTools filter.  I mention this because I love it so much I’ve decided to use it on every one of my pictures from now on. I know what you’re thinking. Don’t worry, it will be OK.

Christmas Day Snow

Winter landscape

PAD December 28, 2010

I have wanted to see a snow covered Radnor Lake this winter, but was afraid the roads would be too icy to allow it. The one inch that fell Christmas Eve might not have seemed like much, but it covered and stayed on every little surface except the roads!  It was an unexpected Christmas present. Thanks Santa!

Snowy Woods

Woods in Snow

Brother John arrived yesterday, we went to the mall (finding a parking spot immediately!) to finish shopping, stopped by to wish Aunt Ruth a happy 91st birthday, and went out for a pizza dinner. We’re ready for Christmas! We even have time to go to Radnor before our snowstorm, which has been downgraded from four inches to one, hits this evening. My children are cooking Christmas dinner. What a gift!

Can you hear the jingle-jangle of sleigh bells?

Tree Bones

Shore line

PAD December 23, 2010

Things are getting crazy around here: last minute shopping and cooking, family arriving, and a rare snowfall predicted for Nashville on Christmas Day! I’m going to keep this calming scene from Radnor in my mind during the countdown to Christmas 2010.

It’s easy to ignore how far behind you are on getting ready for Christmas while walking around Radnor.  I won’t be walking today.  Some things cannot be ignored!
