When Mother Nature doesn’t decorate with color, she uses form.


  1. You do live in fantasy winter wonderland, Terry, I suppose it never gets miserably cold either. Right? 🙂

  2. We’ve got a lot of the white stuff here too,… it’s snowing so hard that it’s even on my computer screen! Great effect you have there! 🙂

  3. This year has been a little chilly, Bo, but it has been worse. It’s 2° right now and -6° is the forecast for tonight. They’ve been revising the forecast upwards though. So far only a foot of snow.

  4. Cedar,

    It has been snowing here practically non-stop for 4 days, but it has all been tiny flakes which don’t add up much except on the driveway.

    The snow on the screen is courtesy of WordPress, an effect they’ve made available until Jan.4. It looks the same outside.

  5. Beautifully mesmerizing. fantasy winter wonderland indeed!!

    White is so gracefully beautiful and elegant and serene and calm that color cannot come close to expressing its depth. It’s the sum total of all colors, after all! 🙂

  6. Sumedh,

    I agree, white is so elegant, and especially newly fallen snow.

  7. I always loved that line on the planet earth series, “And now, in the spring, the mountains shed their wintery covering and bear their sculpted form.

  8. Scienceguy,

    The word “sculpture” often comes to mind when I look at the mountains.

  9. I love the beautiful contrast of the white and black.

    It’s like a winter wonderland out here–I just love it!

  10. Sara,

    Yes, a wonderland is a good way to put it. I’ve loved it for so many years, and still simply have to get out in the snow. I even have to admit I like to walk in the really cold weather, because usually then the sky is clear and there’s never anyone else out and about.

  11. It looks so magical!

  12. The snow makes it that way, I think. The foreground brush is greasewood, not very attractive in summer but the snow shows its form. It’s tiny leaves are the salvation of the deer who need it for winter forage.
