To glance out the window today was a good idea here, because a recent snow and drizzle has frozen onto the branches of the trees, and they are wrapped in a winter lace. The photos I am sharing were taken on two separate days. Yesterday’s weather was very heavy and foggy, shrouding the landscape and adding a sense of mystery to the woods. Today, the clouds were lighter, and the air clearer, so that the trees glowed white against a pale blue background. It was beautiful. Some of the photos were taken with various settings to portray different moods in the images. It was hard to stop snapping photos today.
It is scenery like this that inspired me to write the poem for our Christmas card for 2012. You can see that poem, the 2012 Christmas card, as well as the original Winter Cow drawing here.
Thanks for looking!
