Sweet Shot: The Drive-Thru

We still have 2 feet of snow on the ground because the temps haven't pushed above 32. There are 4-5 inches expected tonight followed by a pretty bad ice storm.

Remember how I was wondering if the white stuff would ever begin to fall up here in the Artic?

Dear Mother Nature ~ Enough already. I GET IT NOW!!

Anyway, since I will likely be snowed/iced in for the next couple of days, I thought I would see the outside world if but for the few minutes it takes to drive down to McDonald's to purchase a really nutritious lunch. (Would you be surprised if I mentioned the fact that IF WE HAD A CHICK-FIL-A HERE, WE WOULD ALL BE EATING HEALTHIER???)

Thankfully, I just had Audrey in the car because she did not roll her eyes and make a snide comment about me taking way too many pictures when I whipped out my iPhone and took a quick picture of the dead grass growing beside the drive-thru lane.

I think it's lovely, especially after I touched it up with Coffeeshop's Chocolate Truffle action (LOVE The Coffeeshop Blog!!).

That is a "sweet shot"...despite the snow, this photo felt "warm" and maybe a bit cozy to me. The sun can be so deceiving in the winter months.

I think it is a great shot and I love her actions! I hope you don't get ice - that is no fun!

Ashley Sisk said...

Great shot and I haven't experimented with that action yet but it looks great!

Oh love it. I really like the editing on this.

Nice shot and editing!
I wish we had snow. Sigh. This is the first year since we've been here that we haven't had several inches. Usually right now all parking lots are piled high with snow mountains (thank you snow plows) but instead it's been a really mild winter.

Pretty photo! It's much nicer than the view from my McDonald's drive thru line. (which we frequent a little too often)

Natalie said...

That is an absolutely perfect photo for a phoone shot! I love it and the processing!

This is such a cool shot...right there at the drive thru! Love the colors :)

Michelle said...

This sure looks nice - even though I'm certain it's cold! And I hear you - I've had enough of the snow! I'm ready for flowers and thunderstorms!

Darcy said...

love the color of this!
And it DOES remind me of a truffle, weird!

Amy @ Cheeky Cocoa Beans said...

I love the colors! Thanks for passing along the link to that blog--I'm definitely going to check it out!

Wonderful photo.

Snow still? Yeah. A drive-tru is about the only way I'd get out to see it. :O)

"Cool" shot!
