WPC – Ascend

…this week’s theme for the weekly photo challenge is ascend

I was a bit perplexed by the word ascend so I looked up the definition.

      With definition in hand I found some photos that I felt ‘ascended’ to the challenge.

A Square Evening in December – Our First Snow

December 11, 2017

Walking tonight to get in my remaining steps I stepped into a winter wonderland.  That may be a bit of an exaggeration seeing that it was really just a dusting of snow that was clinging to the ground but the evening was so serene that I didn’t want to stop walking. I took my camera with me and managed to capture some of the falling snow.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

…..despite the lack of snow people are getting into the Christmas spirit

While walking in the dark a few nights ago I decided to take some photos with my new iPhone. Before you think I splashed out on the newest version, I didn’t. These photos were taken with an iPhone 6.
