White light


The frigid weather last week in Bend, Oregon, dressed the tan and gray brown Autumn landscape into the white garments of Winter. Last season's new growth adorns the crisp air proudly like tail feathers of an ice-sculpted peacock. Wherever I look, I spy evidence of cold white filigree bringing prominence to unsuspecting objects. It is the handiwork of the new season, which disguised first as an icy night wind, has revealed itself in texture as a bearer of nature's love song.

That's incredibly beautiful. I thought of lace when I first looked at it, although filigree works too. But "tail feathers of an ice-sculpted peacock" is better than either one of them. Wish I'd thought of that!

A beautiful outlook on winter.

Well, my friend, you do have a way with words. In fact, only you could come up with a paean to winter that made the freezing cold, snowy, blustery weather sound bearable!

Having lived in Minnesota and other parts of the frozen north, I remain unconvinced however.

Today, it will be 84 degrees in Ocala. No snow.

At long last it is now colder here too. We had our first real frost last night, but nothing near as beautiful as this!
I love snow but unfortunately I hope it won't snow. Because when it does, it's absolute chaos.

How exquisite! A marvelous shot, Lee, and a lovely post! There is beauty to be seen and enjoyed in every season if we take the time to look -- and you have!

Have a great day!
