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

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    On dirait une belle couche de meringue cette belle neige !... Mais brrrr... il est vrai que je ne suis pas "neige" mais il faut avouer que le spectacle est fort beau !
    Merci pour le partage de ces magnifiques photos.
    Chez nous il fait anormalement doux ! Aujourd'hui 17°C 8 et les fleurs printanières sortent déjà !


    Gros bisous ♡

    1. so glad you enjoyed the sunset, me too. today is cloudy, i doubt we will have a glimpse of light.
      yes, i do have neighbors. not a lot, we all have different amounts of land and that keeps space between us. I have a 20 minute drive to get to town. Not bad to have the wilderness experience with only a 20 min. drive.

  16. All are so serene and beautiful, especially the last scene, which talks to me to straighten up even in the cold and the dreams of the next day. Stay warm, and take care, Tammie.

  17. ...these are gorgeous, Tammie. The last photo looks like something out of National Geo! You live in a magical place...the forest in snow...so beautiful. In the winter we can go weeks with no color, just gray, overcast skies, and when the sun finally peaks through and the blue sky appears...what a gift! Sounds like that is what you're experiencing this winter. For us, our snow level is very low...almost none at all. I miss it, and I enjoyed seeing all of your snow! I loved all the snowflake photos from the previous posts....you're so good at capturing the tiny flakes!!!

    Love the simple of beauty of snow! All of them are beautiful.Especially the first one is my favorite. The snow laden on the branches are beautiful.

  21. Tammie, as you probably know, I have no fondness for winter despite my Michigan home. But I will always be first to admit that when you see the pristine snow against a brilliant blue sky, it takes my breath away and is truly beautiful. You have captured it so very well. (And that last photo is a Christmas card waiting to happen -- along with the red snowflakes! Just sayin'...)
