February Daily Photos – Week One

February…….it’s been a fairly easy winter, so far, here in WNY! We had a nasty bout of heavy snow and ice early December, but aside from that, it’s been pretty dad gum good! Then, a bit of a winter storm came through the last couple of days and we’re predicted to have some more coming tomorrow night……not crippling and not really too bad, at all, but we’ve been spoiled, for the most part, so for us to get a significant amount of snow less than a week after the groundhog predicted an early spring has been a bit of a slap in the face for us…….but, we are western New Yorkers and we can handle it!!! LOL

Here’s this week’s Daily Photos:

TELL A STORY….

My grandparents had a summer home in the small Lake Ontario cottage community called Sunset Beach. I spent a lot of time there in the summers of my youth and have many wonderful memories! I often find myself thinking about warm summer evenings when I would walk to this spot overlooking the lake and sit on the bench listening to the waves crashing onto the shore below and just thinking for hours in the dark! It hasn’t changed much in 50+ years!

MY BEST PIC OF 2019

It is an impossible task to pick a best or favorite photo of the year – some are just really good shots, some a sentimental subject, some a wonderful memory…..so, I settled on this one just because it caught my eye as I was going through my 2019 photos and I like how it turned out! It was taken in August and the daily topic was “Macro”!
