The no sky sky

It’s been a mild winter

With skies of silver and grey.

No sky

The outlook from where I’m standing though

Is all good.

    Looking at this scene, Fiona, I presume it’s the lake, where would the jetty be?

    January 30, 2014 at 14:12

    • Ruby is at the lake where the jetty is. The first picture is the little headland that is to the right of the jetty – around the corner.

      January 30, 2014 at 14:51

      • Don

        So the jetty is completely covered – is that right?

        January 30, 2014 at 14:57

      • Yes, nearly all covered in snow!

        January 30, 2014 at 15:04

      • Don

        I just find that so fascinating. Quite incredible. Thank you.

        January 30, 2014 at 15:06

      • The jetty is to the right of the shot. It’s nearly all covered in snow – but the metal ladder rail is sticking up so you know where to walk…

  2. Serene…wow!

    January 30, 2014 at 14:28

  3. Awesome – lucky you!

    January 30, 2014 at 14:31

  4. The no sky skies, so typical at this time of the year. I like the Pema Chodron quotation as well as your lovely images.

    January 30, 2014 at 15:05

  5. I love the idea of Ruby bringing that splash of colour to the winter palette, where everything else melts into one silvery scene.

    January 30, 2014 at 15:17

  6. always get a huge grin when i see your dogs. :)

    January 30, 2014 at 15:31

  7. The no.sky sky reminds me of winter in Oregon, except there wouldn’t even be the lovely snow. Just the no sky!

  44. I think your winter took a wrong turn and is vacationing in my neck of the woods. You can have that winter friend back any time you want…

    January 31, 2014 at 04:47

  45. Jim

    What a great scene

    January 31, 2014 at 05:12

  46. They are still beauties. Oscar is always a perfect model :)

    January 31, 2014 at 05:50

  47. Silver with just a hint of color!

    January 31, 2014 at 05:57

    January 31, 2014 at 08:53

  52. Looks beautiful, we still haven’t any snowflakes in view ! It’s an unusual warm rainy weather. Maybe we will get winter in May !

    January 31, 2014 at 10:18

  53. your dog is a great patch of color in the grey world.

    January 31, 2014 at 11:13

  54. Simply magical, love the snow cover!

    January 31, 2014 at 11:30

  55. Truly out of this world.. and that cute canine.makes it picture perfect!

    January 31, 2014 at 11:43

  56. Gorgeous – the golden retriever, rusty golden brown, bringing life and point and emphasis to the greys.

    January 31, 2014 at 11:55

  57. Simply gorgeous…. no, it’s breath-taking! I just both of these wintry photos. :)

    January 31, 2014 at 12:01

  58. Lovely pictures even when there is not too much color. To someone like me who doesn’t see much of snow this looks surreal!

    January 31, 2014 at 12:37

  59. Lovely pictures of wonderland setting in snow!

    January 31, 2014 at 12:55

  60. Wow.

  61. Amazing winter and captures!
    Happy weekend Lady Fi.

  62. Winter scene is absolutely taken beautifully. Oscar is such a good fellow to stay put and not scratch, chase a squirrel or turn around just as you click the shutter. He deserves an Oscar for being so well trained. Both photographs are absolutely top notch.

  63. Oh my … you are presenting a wonderful winter landscape again. Great to see all that snow.
    We haven’t had any snow at all so far, but I’m glad we’ve had two wonderful winter days vesterday and today. But tomorrow it will rain again. :-(
    Enjoy your weekend in your snowy world, LadyFi!

    January 31, 2014 at 16:55

    February 4, 2014 at 06:28

  86. So strikingly pretty! You always manage to catch the loveliest light of day.
    And bonus – it’s my kind of landscape & there’s Oscar, too! (I thought it was Oscar, do you still have Ruby on board with you, too?)

    February 4, 2014 at 07:13

    • That’s Ruby in the second picture. She’s still here (until she goes on heat and has to return to the breeders.)

      February 4, 2014 at 08:09

  87. Still beautiful in white.

    February 4, 2014 at 16:04

    It may be a mild winter for you, but one tenth of that would caused total chaos where I live!
    Your photos (as always) are outstanding! Really good…
