Texas Winter Storm Pics

I live out in the country, so I knew we’d lose power. Thankfully, my neighbor has a generator so we’ve taken refuge at his house during this winter storm.

I don’t like posting on my phone but I wanted to go ahead and share some pictures. I’ve been braving the freezing temperatures to do some shooting since this is history in the making lol.

And it’s been a fun challenge to have some fresh stuff to photograph. I also have basically no experience shooting in snowy conditions.

These pictures were all shot with my phone. I’ll have to wait for my electricity to come back on and damage control to be over before I can see what I got on my camera.

In no particular order. . .

All that snow makes this walk much harder than usual
This Morning – Day Three
My snow shadow
Never tried snow flower photography lol
My poor yucca aren’t accustomed to this kind of weather

I’ll stop at six pix lol. I’ve laid under the covers for long enough. I’m exhausted and cold and soooo over the pretty snow. We’re on day three, so it shouldn’t be too much longer.

Morgana’s Documentary Photography

Yay, my photography site is finally up. There’s only one gallery right now but I’ll be adding more throughout the year as I get them completed.

My First Photo Gallery

I decided to start with a gallery of Sunny, my dog. I’ve already made a lot of progress going through her photos for her blog, so it seemed like a good place to start.

I shoot the banal so some series you can expect to see will be:

  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Fans
  • Shoes
  • Cars
  • Bicycles
  • People’s Stuff

Stuff like that . . .

Thanks for checking it out and don’t forget to follow.

Rural East Texas – A Photographic Journey

Driving up and down the roads of rural East Texas is a very enjoyable and satisfying experience. At times, I am so enthralled by the beautiful landscape that I am shocked I haven’t flipped my car and truly become one with the land.

The Pollen Barn

Barns always grab my attention, and we’ve got a lot of barns in East Texas. I love how the bright blanket of yellow flowers takes over the land. This rural landscape is located on US 259 in between Nacogdoches and a small town called Mt. Enterprise.

The Hardwood Barn

The Hardwood Barn is located on the left as you approach Mt. Enterprise. I think it’s used as an auction house. It’s fun to watch the surrounding landscape change throughout the seasons.

Backroad Country Barn

I found this rickety little barn on a quiet winding backroad.

Old Rusty Tractors

I love how old rusty farm equipment looks . . . It’s soooo country. These old tractors are located near Mt. Enterprise on US 259.

Lil’ Blue Tractor and some Cacti

Here’s the final image of our journey through rural East Texas. I like how the cacti in the foreground frame the blue tractor in the distance. A large vicious dog was barking at me the whole time, so I shot this picture from the safety of my car.
