Ice Crystal Morning


clouds parted during the night
stars shinned clear and bright


temperature dropped to -1F
and 
crystals grew
creating a magical winter wonderland to awaken to


the song 
of snow geese filled the world
as they flew overhead


the world appears enchanted


wings of crystalline ice


and 
wings in the sky

The Sun Visits Briefly


most days this year
have been cloudy
misty
gray and whites


yesterday
the sun 
found spaces between clouds to peer through
to us


so lovely to see blue
and the snowy mountain glowing and cloaked
in misty clouds


the snowy dunes came to life 
in shadows and light


sunset 
a lovely sight

Winter Wonderland


finding joy
in snowflakes

i hope you are still enjoying my photos of them



my forest
cloaked in winter snow


and
more snowflakes
captured on fabric laid upon my steps
as the sun began to set and darken our day


winter 
whites and gray blues


these flakes are a little frosty
soft around the edges
still star and flower like shapes
delicate bits of snowy ice

Wishing You


I laid this cloth on my steps
for snowflakes to land on
they are so tiny today


little gems of ice


along the road 
i spied a grouse


it might be hard to see
this is our road to home......


winter flowers


something nostalgic about old barns in their winter cloak


a forest walk
~

Wishing you a marvelous 2016!

Snowflakes


every time it snows
the flakes look different


they fall through the sky differently as well


today they were floating
softly
slowly
landing in piles


today they look like we imagine
when we think of snowflakes
tiny crystalline stars


I do mean tiny, like the size of a sesame seed
~

I put out the red cloth for them to land on
the other photos are taken on my car

we are officially in the season of snow and ice
i love snowflake season
