Silken painting

I opened my front door, took a walk on the ice…

… and rubbed my eyes in disbelief.

Someone had rolled out a silken scarf and created a masterpiece with delicate, loving brush strokes

In pearl, and grey, and white and black.

(This colour photo is straight from the camera. Wondrous!)

  1. Oh, how gorgeous! This one really took my breath away! I’m so glad you captured it and thank you so much for sharing! That is one of the most beautiful, snowy pictures I’ve ever seen! It’s worth being cold! Have a beautiful week, my friend!



  2. I too started to say it is like a painting, but I think any painter would be incredibly lucky to capture this! There isn’t much that makes me think freezing would be worth it, but this could do it. It really is beautiful Fi.


  3. Fi, that new camera is really paying off. What a gorgeous capture.

    I can only wish we had such sights, well on second thought, I am quite happy to only see them on blogs.

    Crocus are blooming here.



  4. It’s hard to imagine anything more beautiful than the unexpected things nature paints for us. Magnificent.

    Congratulations on your Post Of The Week recognition at Hilary’s.


  5. Looks divine and as a Norwegian I feel like home in this; nice, quiet with crisp, fresh air – lovely!

    Btw: Thanks for you’re visit and nice comment on my Oslo Ice Bar post. I would love to go to the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi one day! Guess it’s kind of like Kirkenes Snow Hotel.


  6. It is stunning but I couldn’t figure out if the ice had formed the illusion of leaves, or whether the tree already had evergreen leaves with frost settling on them.


  7. We live in such lucky times, don’t we? We can capture beautiful scenes with such clarity and keep them with us. If you ever need a shot of perfect beauty? You’ve got it, and now you’ve made sure we all do too. How lovely. Congratulations on the post of the week mention at Hilary’s blog!


  8. What a magical mystical view … like something out of CS Lewis (ie the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) … simply beautiful (and certainly illustrates why you were delighted by the brief stretch of sunshine and blues skies shared for Sky Watch!
    Hugs and blessings,


  9. This is a masterpiece. It is a reminder to see and take wonder in the differences in life that truly stimulate the senses no matter how big or small the changes are. Feeling the Moment allows us to move forward freely into the next moment.
