The gold in the cold

What a gift from Mother Nature —

Lots more snow!

Ruby and Simmie look

Especially photogenic

With their golden fur against the snow.

Ruby looks good

Dressed in snow sparkles too.

On the way home, I found a mirror and took

A (fairly bad) shot of myself with the dogs.

    Fiona, that first photograph literally took my breath away! It’s STUNNING! Your photos almost look as though they are part photograph, part painting. AMAZING!

    Love the ones of the dogs as well. They’re both such beautiful canines! Love the snow on Ruby’s face!

    Glad to see you back, my friend. Hope you had a nice trip!

    P.S Oh and btw, we are getting some snow this week and I can’t wait. Yahoooooooo!
