The elegance of winter

A couple of weeks ago, we had a lovely snowfall

And I got to enjoy berries wearing a Santa hat.


The dried seed pods

Glowed like lace in the sunlight

Golden thistles

And delicate diamonds

Glittered on slender stems.

Even the snowballs on the frozen lake

Looked like pearls.

But my favourite sight – as always –

Are snowflakes of joy.

  1. Oh how elegant Fiona – love seeing these snow photographs. We actually had a major temperature drop here delivering us finally a blow to winter with sleet, ice and this morning tiny snow flakes.


  2. Fiona, it’s so wonderful to read a blog in which the author enjoys winter the way I do. You see winter the way I see winter…elegant!

    Gorgeous captures!

    “And delicate diamonds

    Stunning photograph! And I love how you describe things.

    Have a super Monday, my friend!


  3. You’re one of the few people who can post about winter and make me glad that we’re sharing the same season.


  4. Snow balls. And to think I was thinking Snow Goose all the way. There is intimacy in these shots, as pure as the snow.


  5. I do agree with Yogi, you do indeed have a gift with your eye and your beautiful words!! Thank you, as always, for sharing!


  6. Oh la! Superb wintery images Fiona.. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed seeing them on a 41C degree day here in Perth, merci beaucoup.


  7. Those berries and the dry plant with snow on it (that looks like flowers) look very pretty.
    Lovely pictures, Lady Fi.


  8. “Snowflakes of joy”… I’m hoping to have some in the next days… 🙂 Forecast says something about precipitations as soon!! Our winter was and wasn’t… “but i’m dreaming of”… and i feel joyful – still!! Have a good day!
