Snowscape

When the morning light hits the trees

In just the right way;

Snowscape 2

When the blue bowl of the sky

Hangs like a silken canopy over the frozen lake;

Snowscape

And when the sun sets

In soft pastel purples…

Then … yes then!

Winter is a glorious place to be.

Sky and snow

    1st class photography, love them all but the first is my choice for the virgin snow, the tree reaching out, the colours from the sun shining, pure magic.

    March 29, 2013 at 00:20

  47. What wonderful views! It must be a lovely place to live.

  49. Oh, how gorgeous. I love the light just hitting the branches just right and highlighting/contrasting against the whiteness of the snow and bluish skies.

    March 29, 2013 at 02:49

  50. You have got me tinking about bitter cold weather in a totally different way. I’m still not going to move to North Dakota though.

  66. Wonderful winter shots as ever, but I’m longing for the fresh colors of a warm spring.

    March 29, 2013 at 13:55

  67. Terrific captures.

    March 29, 2013 at 14:06

  68. I’m running out of superlatives. :-) I am completely in love with that magnificent tree, and how you photographed it with the sun just behind it. I looked for Oscar in the second photo, but couldn’t find him! (Loved Andy’s reference to Dr. Zhivago, that second photo especially evokes memories of that film). The colors and composition of the third photo are really lovely, almost magical.

    Our temps right now are in the low 60’s, and except for some tenacious, grubby little patches that never feel the sun, our snow is all gone now, and our sky’s pastels are spring-colored. So I am glad to still get to enjoy your beautiful snowy landscapes and softly tinted skies, at least for a little while longer!

    March 29, 2013 at 14:26

  69. All three shots are great … with different shades of colors ! Winter is nice but towards the end, it takes too much time to go this year !
