I love the look of fresh snow in the trees. It took me embarrassingly long to learn that it doesn’t stay up there for very long. In these parts that look will be gone within 4 hours of the snow stopping. Therefore, if it’s pretty on the way to work and I want to take a picture, I had best stop then and there. It will be gone by lunch time.
We have many snows like that too, until later in December, January and February when the daytime temperatures stay below freezing. Once I get use to the cool winter breezes, I just love to feel them and hate to lose them come May.
I love that “Charlie Brown” tree in the middle of the picture. It looks awkward, different, in the midst of all that symmetry. It certain gives some interest to the photo and makes it seem more real – some people would photoshop it out, when it’s really part of the interest. And the snow’s beautiful, too!
It was a real treat for me. Usually when there is much snow up there the road to the trail head is not drivable and so I can’t get there to enjoy it, but this time it was OK, once I shook the snow off a tree that had sagged down across the road and was then able to get the Jeep under it.
oh my goodness
i have been entirely been embracing Autumn
yet a part of me has been mourning the passing of a gorgeous summer
seeing your snowy photo in all it’s beauty
lets me know that i will love winter
and all is good
