Winter beauty

It’s been a long week, not necessarily bad, but long and I’m fighting a sore throat and runny nose.  Consequently, my brain feels just the slightest bit fuzzy and I don’t have the urge to do a long post.  I do have the desire to share some of the beauty of winter, a season I quite enjoy.  Here’s a photo from a walk last year; except for cropping, it’s not been retouched.  I hope you enjoy it and it brightens your Saturday.

    This is a magical image Janet. Hope you feel better very soon. All the best, Su

    • Your ornament photos yesterday looked so much the same that I smiled when I saw them.


      • Su Leslie says:

        Thanks Janet. I have to be content with my plastic tree ornaments, while you have nature decorating your trees. But then again, I’m contemplating a walk on the beach before breakfast. Hope you’re having a great weekend. Su.

      • The beach sounds lovely, too, Su. 🙂 For everything there is a season. It’s just that the seasons are reversed where we two are.

        True. And I think it’s a sign of the growing cultural confidence in the Antipodes that we are making our own Christmas traditions that acknowledge that it’s summer. So much of the iconography of Christmas is winter-based and even things like traditional (European) Christmas food doesn’t work in our hot humid conditions. I love Christmas “with all the trimmings” but we either have to do it mid-winter, or plan to be in Europe for Xmas. Cheers, Su.

    I like this a lot, Janet. The brown and beige tones give a subtle accent to the white crystals. I can feel the warmth of the sun on a cold morning in this image.

  5. I always love the magic of Mother Nature. 🙂

    Beautiful, Janet! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you feel better!

    • Good morning, Jan. I’m happy you like the photo and thanks for the good wishes. I hope I can shake this soon. It’s not enough that I’m full-blown sick and have to just rest, but enough to be annoying and tiring.

    Love the snowflakes, Janet! Winter Beauty indeed!

  9. I enjoyed the almost abstract quality of your capture. Hope that you have a quick recuperation. Tea and honey, honey and tea…

    I know the feeling Janet! My throat is on fire. That time of year. I hate having to slow down but my body is reminding me it is a good idea. Hope you are feeling better!
