What a difference a day (or week) can make...

A week or so ago I posted a fall image of my wee cabin in the woods. The image showed the season in her glory reflected in this very pond, scroll back a few posts to see the image. Today is our "first" snow. It began as rain gently falling upon the earth. Soon I noticed large raindrops that fell slower than the others, reminding me of winters snow. Then they were here, flakes like feathers floating through the air, landing one upon the other, building a white layer upon the earth. Trees coated in blankets of white. Something special about an autumn snowfall is that you see fall colors dressed in white. Very beautiful.

As a photographer I feel timid posting an image that is not dramatic or fantastic, but the part of me that wants to tell a story, wants to share my joy in our first snow shares this image to show how nature has her way. In a moment the green grass can become winter for a day or a season. I bow to and feel great respect for the natural rhythms in life.

  1. Greetings friend! Today I saw some rain falling that reminded me of snow, but it's still wet on this side of our continent.

    Love to you, k and a

  2. Not fantastic??? I think this looks like a postcard picture out of a storybook. I live in a subzero, frozen wasteland and even I can appreciate the beauty of snow that you captured so beautifully.

    By the way, snow already? Nya nya nya nya nya! It was Tshirt weather here today! :)

  3. It looks like a beautiful picture to me, too! We had a few flurries a week or so ago, but today, it was in the 70s. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the white stuff... maybe soon!

  6. Gorgeous! I love your little cabin. That was what I wanted as a child. We had our first snow a week ago though it didn't stick. It's been 70* here in Wisconsin! Unbelievable! Love your blog!

  7. I agree with shannanigans - it's like a picture postcard! I love the snow! (As long as I don't have to get anywhere fast - and can snuggle up indoors with a good book and roaring log fire!)

  8. Tammie: Ditto, with everyone else. Nothing the least bit timid about this photo. I can feel the warmth of the wood stove and the hot chocolate. Happy winter to you.

  9. We almost never see snow here. At least not like this. You are too modest - this is beautiful.
