The colors of fall have finally arrived and are reaching their peak.  But we know that on the other side are scenes like this.  I’m good with that.  I love winter and I love snow.  Without snow, winter is perpetually grey, cold, and boring.  With snow, it’s Christmas every day.

Falling Snow
Amy Lowell

The snow whispers around me
And my wooden clogs
Leave holes behind me in the snow.
But no one will pass this way
Seeking my footsteps,
And when the temple bell rings again
They will be covered and gone.

    Oh that looks so cold, but very beautiful. You should tag it to Ailsa’s challenge of “cold” this week.

  2. Dan Antion says:

    The first time I see bare trees outlined in white is always a reminder of why I enjoy living where there are four seasons.

  3. Allan G. Smorra says:

    Nice photo, Janet. I, too, love Winter. It is the one time of the year that we can appreciate the structure and framework of the trees, barren of leaves blocking our sight.

  4. I think that winter is the most punishing, depressing time of year, but I love seeing it through your lens. I wish I could always have that perspective!

    That’s a lovely photo. Coming from Australia, a snow scene like this is a beautiful sight to me. 🙂

    YES! SNOW! I love snow, too 🙂

  7. Su Leslie says:

    Beautiful shot Janet. And l really like the poem too. 🙂

  8. Love the snow and ice and fog, Janet. Send me some. It is getting hot at home now – summer on the way.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
