Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Ah, this week did feel more normal...no forgetting school.  I also got plenty of chances to take pictures and experiment with the subjects I'm passionate about plus some sun.  That doesn't mean my pictures are necessarily better, but it was more fun.  The hunt was also more fun as I remembered the prompts all week even Monday at the zoo.

Stacked Up:
The girls loved their critter drinks, but thankfully the whole family split the rice crispy treat later at home.

Winter Wonderland:
It is a wonder that leaves are still hanging on the tree this late in winter, but I think the low golden winter sun is really, really wonderful.  Our golden hour lasts all day.

Sweet:
Sunflower as my choice does not surprise you, does it?  Though I was more successful with backlighting in other shots.

Hole:
She cooperated with her face in the hole for only a very short time.

Frozen:
The ground was quite frozen, but with the sun out we went out to play anyway.  Sunflower thinks it is snow.

I hope you had a fun hunt.  I look forward to seeing how winter looks in other places of the world.

Particularly love the depth of field and the artful bokeh in your second shot. And your third shot is completely sweet - love the natural colours and the sun shining through her hair.
