North Fork, Montana

 the charming cabin i called home for 3 days

 found a nest with eggs made of snow 

north west entrance to Glacier National Park, Rocky Mountains

 afternoon above

 frosty morning and frozen river

 skiing along the steaming river, mighty cold at -10F/-26C
twas even colder during the night

 shadows were long

 and gray blue

this week, one day
the snow fell in the shape of stars
captured on Lucy's fur
(Lucy is a dog)

i love it when snow falls in the shape of stars


  1. The third photograph is to be submitted to a competition, it's simple and beautiful at once, and it is not easy.

    Have a good one, Tammie.


  2. thank you so much for enjoying!

  3. Wonderful shots.
    Deep snow . . . cozy cabin . . . and star-shaped
    snow flakes! (I've never seen star flakes. Amazing.)
    Very jealous of your beautiful setting.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. A wonderful interlude near Glacier. If you hadn't told the temp, I would have guessed warmer by the photos. You must be on skiing skis - my tracks are wider now with my new shaped ones. You notice everything - the snow egg is wonderful as is the star flake.

  5. Thrilling pics!
