Romancing the snow

The romance of winter –

And the deep snow –

Never fail to surprise and please

Sunrise dog

When wrapped up in

A sky of pink tissue

And a bow of dreamy fog.

Romance 2

  9. What a lovely Valentine your post makes! I noticed the “teddy bear” that She Who Carries Camera mentioned too! But the best teddy bear is Oscar.🙂 I love the intricate, lacy tree branches in the second photo, especially against that beautifully soft pastel sky. It’s all so delicate looking, with the grasses and the diaphanous fog – I think I’d be afraid to exhale and blow the whole beautifully fragile scene away!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and precious Oscar! I sure ♡ your blog.🙂

  11. Oscar sure is a chill guy. Actually, his pics of laying so comfortably in the snow is haparious, in itself. He looks at the camera like “uh….is this weird?”

    ….”no Oscar…you’re just fine”. 😉
    Happy Valentines Day, LadiFi. May your day be filled with an abundance of love from all over the world.

  79. Hi LadyFi, love the pinky pastels, you make winter look like a wonderland…and Oscar sure loves the cold, I know because we had a dog exactly like Oscar who loved to play in the snow, before she passed on, we had to drive her up a mountain so she could see snow one last time, she liked to lay on the snow and feel the cold on her belly. Your lake is magical in winter and in summer. cheers.

Everything about these images is wonderful: the soft pastel hues of the sky, the light, the composition [the dog and bench really help add interest to the scenes], the lace-like silhouetted branches, the fresh snow — sigh — KUDOS!
