Winter Crystals



when the clouds go away


and the stars shine above


temperatures drop deep


our sylvan realm begins to glow


ice crystals abound

A Frosty World



amongst the frosty crystals 
they perch


and 
then take flight


blue is such a wonderful color for our sky


once upon a time

I hope your December is going well.

If you would like to get to know a bit more about me
There is an interview on my other blog:

The Soft Blues of Deep Cold


cold days
cold nights
mists rise


 glimpses
touch imagination


as they cloak some bits
and not others


frost shimmers


grows thick as cold days carry on


i delight
in the blues and whites

Galaxies of Ice Crystals



this past week 
deep cold temperatures have filled our days and nights
the perfect environment for
crystals to manifest


unique from all i have seen in the past
a bit like the beauty of moths wings
 

layer after layer of beauty came to be


each unique


fragile delights


below the ponds surface
bubbles frozen in time


meadows tall grasses lay down
under the weight of galaxies of crystal beings


their presence inspires joy 
 awe

 
below the ice, a strawberry leaf 
and fuzzy snowflakes on the surface
 
~
if you look at my last post
there is a photo of the ponds surface
now look at how many crystals have formed:
daily
they grow and change

First Snow and Cold Temperatures


 any thoughts on what these photos are of?


 twas a very cold morning
-5F


frozen condensation
on the inside of my cabin windows


wandering the forest
amongst our first snow
i found a squirrel stashed a mushroom
up in a tree


my ponds have a thick layer of ice
thick


when you look close
sha zam!

and
frosty crystals


all over the surface!

but when i got out of this wee hollow
what a beautiful and cold day:


it looks like winter has begun

Honoring Autumn Leaves


leading with one of my older photos
and a favorite of mine
a rare find when raindrops are colored


ancient rugged beauty


leaves reflected as golden light
dancing on the river


forest lace
in the depth of a dark forest


a crown of ice crystals
 

through the leafy veil
 

together they begin winter
 

gems of rain
 

lay me down to sleep till spring


this last one is one i have always loved

more rugged handsome

leaves as treasures

Autumn Still Fills our Days and Nights


the sun came out today
for a little while to play


the Western Larch are a bit past their prime
still don their golds
a bit divine


the clouds mixed with fog
won my heart
~

I only had my iPad with me today
so that is why these photos are grainy

a few days ago
we had a couple hours of snow:


lately days have been gray
and rainy
~
wishing you a sweet autumn as we lean towards winter

Glimpses of Autumn


the fae folk have been busy painting the leaves


golden giants
masterly


walking paths cloaked in scattered leaves


a cuddle of trees
 
 
treasures under canopy


doning mauve



vistas beckon
~
 
lakes



what could that be
 

 
wishing you a lovely autumn
