Out of the bosom of the air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
Descends the snow.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We've been getting our share of cold, snowy weather. It's been better than last year, so far but winter is well and truly here. All photos were taken through glass -some through glass and screen. And some on different days.
My first glimpse of the sun coming over Blueberry Island, as seen through my bathroom window.
Turning to the opposite direction, you can see her lovely rays landing across the snow of our yard.
Through the kitchen window, across the yard, across the road and up the hills on the opposite side, the trees collected frost and snow which lasted over tend days before we had a warming spell.
And then the snow came in earnest.
It continued to fall despite a few shoveling sessions.
Eventually the sky began to clear and the vague warmth of sunshine tried to burn through. Despite that, it kept snowing for a while.
The wind got creative - making icy patterns on the frozen, snowy lake.
Sunset arrived with huge, cotton candy clouds. This is the view from my computer desk. I just lifted my camera over the monitor.
And not wishing to be out-pinked by the sun, the moon did her best to illuminate a lovely sky.
Even for a summer person like me, it's difficult to not love a winter like that.
