Loving Life after 50

The Lengths I will go to Achieve Sun Effects

achieving sunglow in your pictures

I apparently do not need PicMonkey, Photoshop or any other editing software to create sun bursts in my pictures, I just need minus 27 and be a few minutes late for my normal morning selfies. I had to work up the courage to brave the cold this morning and then realized my camera positioning was perfect for creating some awesome effects,( actually did not realize till I uploaded the pictures but heck isn’t it about capturing that moment even without trying).  not so great for seeing the outfit but pretty cool lighting right???  I achieved Brokeh shapes, Radiance, lensflare and sunglow all without even trying.

So Photography Skills aside it is Spring right?? March 21st was supposed to herald in spring flowers and sunshiny days, so what exactly happened here.  Freezing rain, snow and oh my lord -27 with the windchill this morning, It is pretty difficult to get that spring like vibe on when the radio announces there is a frost bite warning. Lucky for me one of the spring trends for 2015 is Army, meaning the shade of green not camo ( or so I read on the internet so it must be true right??), I also managed to include Colour Block and stripes so I am #TRENDING 
Last week while in Whitehorse I ran to the grocery store for yogurt and I found this dress, go figure grocery shopping and discovering this gem, and this gem was $6.94 and the Tee Shirt I am wearing underneath was $3.00. There actually were two dresses, this one and one that was Brown and Black 
( exact same style) and I was totally tempted to get both but a girl must exercise some restraint right??
Add my Nine West Booties and some Navy tights and I could almost feel good about today. ( and I had to wear the gloves because man it was cold)

and yes my St Paddy’s Day Wreathe is still up, don’t judge, it snowed all weekend and that is not the worse, what you cannot see if the Christmas Decorations on my lawn that are frozen into snowbanks so they will stay where they are till probably May the way this season is going.
