I love finding the small beauties in the world and then photographing them. It’s too easy to see the big picture yet miss the individual pieces that make up that picture.  The park is full of these gems, in this case, gems made of ice.  However, I, unlike Stevie, don’t keep my visions to myself.  I share them with you!

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
Dreams, Stevie Nicks

I am grateful for the silence of winter mornings, for the beauty and wonder of the glint of sunlight in frost melting to dew, for the early-riser’s peaceful solitude that sets a mood of thankfulness, hope, and calm for the dawning day.

  7. A beautiful perspective paired with lyrics from my favorite musician – what’s not to like? Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by. If I were there today, I’d be blown away, almost literally. We’re having very high winds as a cold front moves in. Started last night and still going strong this morning Happy Tuesday, Madison.


  8. Wow, what a stunning marvel of mother nature! I absolutely hate to consider temperatures capable of creating such a phenomenon, but at least, I can appreciate its beauty from afar.

    • It wasn’t too bad that day, Hannah, although it obviously started off below freezing. By the time I left, it had gotten quite warm. But I’m always glad to help you appreciate winter from your warm spot in California. 🙂
