Winter wonder

I dressed warmly and headed out on this 15 degree day on the 12th of December in the year 2013 and risked frostbite to take some photographs.

Come, take a walk with me…we’ll talk, and laugh, and sigh…just like old times.

Every time I see this swing, I remember the conversation I had with an elderly gentlemen who was sitting there one spring day.  Two strangers connected for a moment in time by our love of nature.

The clouds in the sky looked a lot like a blanket of snow.

It was so hard not to want to walk on the frozen pond, but the ice is not thick enough to support people.

The sky was a lovely shade of blue today.

It was chilly to walk around the pond, but I made it happen anyway.

I found some bunny tracks.  I was feeling happy.

It really was tempting to walk on the ice…but I resisted the urge.

I really like shadows.

The snow had beautiful patterns in it from being blown around by the wind.  I get so fascinated by the little things I see in Nature.

I really love my Life.

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    Wonderfully beautiful pictures Casey!! Thanks for sharing them. The snow is so lovely. We had a dusting here but this morning we also had some icy fog which left the trees flocked. 🙂

      Thank you so much, Debra.

      I enjoyed being out there today, even though I had to run for a bit to warm up my legs. I didn’t have two layers on under my pants (next time I will for sure!).

      Icy fog. I bet that was so nice to see the flocking on the trees.

      I finally have a full set of pictures of the same place – spring, summer, fall and winter. After the next big snow, I might go out to the arboretum because I’m sure there will be a lot of snowy beauty to capture on film…well…on digital media. 🙂

Would you like to share your thoughts? I'd love to hear them.
