A dividing line

Filed under: Winter — montucky @ 9:45 am

Morning walk at ten below zero

On very cold mornings there is a dividing line between the deep blue cold of the sky and the steam that rises from the river. It makes a very pleasant place for a morning walk.

  1. Easy walking here, but you’d want to have warm clothes. It looks a wee bit chilly.

  3. I wonder if the steam made frost grow on all the twigs. It does that sometimes.
    That’s a great shot!

    • Yes it did. There was a little sun today, just enough to melt a little of the frost only on the south side of the trees.

  4. I hereby nominate “a very pleasant place for a morning walk” as the understatement of the winter. I recognize that road, and it’s a beautiful place in all its seasons.

    • That road runs past the entrance to my driveway and I consider it a treasure, never to be taken for granted. On it I can walk a short way or many miles and do so in all kinds of weather. From it I can drop down to the river and catch a trout for dinner, or hike up several miles, take a side road and get into some very wild back country. On it I have seen Fox, Coyote, Cougar, Bear, Porcupine, Raccoon, Rabbit, Wolf, Deer, Elk, Moose, Bighorn Sheep, and all kinds of birds, from hummingbirds to wild turkeys. One of my fondness wishes would be that everyone could have such easy access to such a road.

  5. I can almost feel the crunch of snow underfoot looking at this image. It looks a very nice road for a walk indeed.

    • At the current temperatures, the crunch of snow underfoot has become the “squeek” of icy snow, but my best friend Buster and I walk at least four miles every day on that road and enjoy every inch of it. (He will sniff out anything that I might otherwise miss.)

    • Hiking with my friend gives me great pleasure. It picks up my spirits to see his demonstration of pure joy in each hike we take.

  8. That’s the road close to your house, right? It’s beautiful. Wish I liked the cold.

    • Yes, my favorite road. When I was about 8 years old I started driving an old tractor up that road to a hayfield above.

  9. Have you also taken pictures inside the rising steam?

    • I posted one several days ago of a sunrise. That was taken from inside the edge of the steam. It’s like a dense, shifting fog and quite wet and cold. It coats the trees along the river with a frost that looks like hoarfrost.

  11. The air, cool to breath, stimulating to feel must be energizing. Endorphins Engage!
