Frozen surprises

If you could capture the cold and paint it … what would it look like?

As warm as melting honey or as dazzling as a sun on fire?

From where I’m looking, -18 C looks just glorious!

  10. Every winter morning I wake up cursing the cold and then you come along and talk about how beautiful it is. You’re confusing me.

  16. You have a gift, to see beauty and warmth in that temperature. “Warm Honey” is a perfect description of the sun. Stay warm!

  17. Yes, absolutely gorgeous, but – for preference! – viewed from somewhere warm and comforting. Hot soup by a log fire, anyone?

    Have a great weekend!

  22. I love your shots of the cold, lit by the fire of the low sun. I spend time in the north of Canada for work, north of the Arctic Circle, and it is stunningly beautiful in winter.

  33. Breathtakingly beautiful – clean and pure.
    I read your post about motherly crying. It is so true that young voices singing – or giggling – can set the tears flowing. Did you know that teachers exploit this? Why else do we have little angels lisping ‘Away in a manger’? but despite the cynicism that sometimes creeps in, having rehearsed the Nativity umpteen times, still tears spring unbidden . . .

  37. LadyFi, you asked how I would paint the cold…It would be a thin bare brown branch on a field of silver gray. We are sweltering in California with a high 50 degrees today and a lovely rain. Thank you for visiting my blog. It is always a pleasure to hear from you.
    Cheers from Chris

  38. Hi, Lady Fi! I’m a new visitor coming over from BPOTW. I enjoyed my visit here so much! I am from Swedish ancestry…my paternal grandfather’s family emigrated to the Boston, MA, area in the early 1900’s. They were from Karlstad. I will be back…hope you get a chance to stop by, too.
