Silent snow

A couple of weekends ago, it started to snow

And snow and snow.


Nature softened her contours

As everything – including Oscar – was buried in lovely white flakes.

Oscar buried

Twigs sprouted snow cones;

Snow hat copy

People and dogs frolicked in the blizzard.

(Look at those Yoda ears!)


And afterwards, we enjoyed the silence

Of a fresh carpet of diamonds.

  3. Oh the image with his nose in the snow…I just let out a big sigh…the kind I do with Little Man. Could he just be any more precious?????

  4. I love fresh snow! It does look like little twinkling diamonds on a clean, white blanket. I’m with Oscar! :)

    snow or should I say SNOW was meant to be frolicked in. Pure and white. Oh, what a sound it makes falling. Thanks for these.

  6. Such beautiful captures of a majestic winter wonderland…wow…

    January 27, 2014 at 16:45

  7. Ahhh, Oscar.

    My heart is melting. Xxx

    January 27, 2014 at 16:46

  8. marvelous! might as well enjoy it – it’ll be there anyway!:)

    January 27, 2014 at 16:50

  9. A winter wonderland!

    January 27, 2014 at 17:01

  10. Our two worlds look very much alike. Next time I’ll have to get out and frolic instead of shoveling.:)

    January 27, 2014 at 17:04

  11. Ohhh…Kelly is jealous!!!

    January 27, 2014 at 17:11

  12. Your dog in the snow made me smile!

    There is nothing quite so beautiful as fresh snow. I guess that’s what keeps one from becoming jaded about winter…

    January 27, 2014 at 18:07

  14. Oscar applause, are fantastic. I love you.
    I do not like winter, waiting for spring. Your photos, however, show its beauty.
    Greetings from distant and cold Polish.

  15. Oscar exudes such joy! I may have told you 50 thousand times before that your pictures actually make me wish for a winter experience (we’ve never lived where there was a lot of snow.. used to go to the mountains with kids and to cross-country ski and we’ve driven through snow on our travels, but never actually spent months in it). But then I remember that my bones and toes ache when they get cold, so I decide to just enjoy the season vicariously through your posts! Thank you.

  16. A beautiful, snowy world and the happiest of dogs!!! Doesn’t get any better!! Wonderful captures of the beauty and the fun!!!

    January 27, 2014 at 19:08

  17. Oscar leads the way yet again – I adore the way he embraces his world with pure abandon. No human being can hold a candle to a dog’s joy when the snow piles up. That’s a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight. Can there be a more lovely place in the whole world?

    January 27, 2014 at 19:21

  18. Don

    Beautiful images. A magical land. That second last image with Oscar running – that’s how I want to feel about life. Our pets are such mentors to us.

    January 27, 2014 at 19:23

  19. dogs love snow .. they are so photogenic while romping .. unlike me who prefers warm romps

    January 27, 2014 at 19:26

    January 27, 2014 at 19:56

    January 27, 2014 at 21:19

    Vad härligt de har i snön….vi har bara några cm här .

    January 27, 2014 at 21:24

  29. I love the sound of snow, the heavy silence, the scrunch it makes as you walk, and the tickling as it falls.

    January 27, 2014 at 21:53

  30. Always enjoy seeing Oscar and his joy in all kinds of weather.

    January 27, 2014 at 22:05

  56. Oscar is the star once again, he looks so stunning against the snow, and he’s having so much fun. The Yoda ears are perfect….pure bliss caught in one photo:-)
    I’m very envious of your snow….we’ve had none at all yet, but your photos give me a little reminder of the brilliant light and pure silence which come along with the soft flakes.

    January 28, 2014 at 10:53

    January 28, 2014 at 15:56

  70. Your photos are so inspiring! Last week Friday I returned from sweltering hot Australia, hoping to come in white snowy Holland, but no way! There hasn’t been any snow yet, only rain. Thank you for sharing your snow!

  76. Wonderful shots of your winter landscape. Our German winter 2014 is much too mild for snow so far – but the winter hasn’t finished yet…
    …so let’s wait and see what we might get in February.

    January 28, 2014 at 21:41

  77. Goldens really love the snow. You describe the scene so well. Your pictures and your words are always so perfect. There is something magical and clean about fresh snow.

    January 28, 2014 at 22:57

  78. Jim

    The absolute magic of winter!! Fiona, you did it again!

    January 28, 2014 at 23:46

    January 28, 2014 at 23:54

  83. Stunning.

    January 29, 2014 at 02:04

  84. Beautifully enchanting snowscapes. I love Oscar’s unbridled enjoyment of the white stuff. Nevertheless, am very happy to be in a snow-free zone this winter and enjoying the sparkle and drifts vicariously through your beautiful photos.

    January 29, 2014 at 06:25

  85. A magic wonderland

    January 29, 2014 at 06:38

  98. hee hee…
    Oscar likes that snow! He can have «Louis’» share of the snow. «Louis» doesn’t “do” snow! That’s one reason he stays in coastal California!:-)

    January 31, 2014 at 16:32
