I'm combining 4 memes today, as I am very busy this week looking after Beep,(my granddaughter), who has come down with a nasty flue bug. I'm happy to say, she is on the mend, and should be back to school on Monday.
 
I'm sorry, I have fallen a bit behind on visiting, and commenting on blogs, but due to the circumstances, I'm sure you all understand.

I really like the dark edges around the barn shot. Well done!

Karen,
I really like the Lake Huron photo. Great color capture and texture differences. This picture needs to be in a calendar.

Debbie said...

Karen, I am happy you are looking after beep, I just hope you don't get whatever she has. Both images are especially different and especially beautiful. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the first one, a gorgeous rural view!!

I love old farms and this picture has so much history written all over it ... don't you wish you could hear the stories? Me too. As for your Lake Huron picture ... what a beauty ... perfect coloring. I can feel the cold. Love it, Karen ...

This is beautiful. I love the colours and the feel of it. It is almost as if I have been there.
I am a dedicated fan of the Great Lakes, so Huron is amazing for me.

Now you're talkin'!! Using photos to share in different memes makes a whole lotta sense to me.

And beautiful they are!!!

Both images are spectacular, but I'm really partial to the frozen Lake shot. It makes me feel very peaceful. Glad to hear Beep is on the mend.

Lisa Gordon said...

Karen, that barn is beautiful, and the lake looks so peaceful. What a wonderful place it must be to spend some time.

I'm glad to hear Beep is on the mend from that nasty flu bug. Hope she's running around real soon.

Very clever to include all the meme's in one post. That way more of us get to enjoy these splendid photos. Gorgeous!

Bless your heart (we say that a lot in TX) and bless L'il Beep's heart, too. Glad she's on the mend and will be back in school soon. Lovely Sky and lovely Barn...see, you are keeping up...4 memes in two photos shows great time management. And you even came by to visit me. Thank you. It's the end of the semester and I do appreciate the warm fuzzy visits.
