Winter reflections

We haven't had any new snow for a while now but it appears all that is about to change. Tonight into tomorrow we are forcast for several inches of the white stuff along the seacoast area. Luckily the girls don't have school tomorrow or they would end up with a snow day.


These photos were taken at a small pond fairly close to where I live. It was a sticky, wet snow much like what we're supposed to get tonight. The kind of snow that makes for great winter wonderland views.


There's nothing better after a snow storm then when the sun comes out. The whites become whiter and everything glistens like diamonds.


Not to mention the blue sky overhead reflecting in the pond offers a nice contrast. The pond has since frozen over.


I wish you a peaceful Winters day.

These are fantastic photos. I really love that red house in all that white and the pond glistening is gorgeous. We've had rain here since yesterday evening. No white stuff here, just brown dead grass and plants. I want to move north!

Have a wonderful Sunday,
Cindy

These are a great set of snow shots. I like the framing and the framing in the first shot. The third shot has me wondering what's around the corner. An excellent quality in a photo. And the last, who doesn't a snow photo with a red interest item?

All our snow melted over the past couple of days. I don't want any more, but I'll enjoy looking at yours! I do love it when the sun shines on snow covered trees and everything glistens!

Not sure what we are going to get here in the Adirondacks. I think it all may go south of us. We've had a wonderful January thaw the past few days. Love your pond photos!

Shirleyanne said...

Wow! Stunning photos. Very tranquil wintery views.
Beautiful!
Our snow in the South West, UK, went as quick as it came.
Took lots of photos though.
More snow for you! Lets hope you're not snowed in.

Take care

I think snow is beautiful too.

It was quite balmy here today - almost like a spring day, but with gray clouds and some much-needed rain.

Loree said...

The last two pictures are just breath-taking.

Jayne said...

Keep warm Sharon, and keep on sharing your winter wonderland photos... they are so very beautiful. :c)

Allison said...

Lovely photos--I am hoping for sticky snow--my boy hasn't had the right kind of snow to build a proper snowman yet!

Mary said...

I think I may need to come to visit so I can take snow photos. Sharon, they're beautiful! You are brilliant behind that camera.

We're having a warmer week - 50's. I'm envious of your snow.

Jan Blencowe said...

You have such a good eye for composition! This series of photos is just stunning and makes me feel as if I am right there.

Here in CT we got rain instead of snow last night. It has washed away most of the snow that was on the ground and since temps are a bit warmer has left us with mud.

For all of mud seasons drawbacks I still love it because it means spring is somewhere around the corner!

As always thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

Aw, the beauty of New England! You've captured it so well. If I didn't already live here, I would definitely have it on my must see list.

Judy said...

Wonderful little pond! My favourite is the third photo, with the reflection of the snow covered bush! And the blue sky! I am starting to think that blue skies are myths, it has been so long since I have seen one!

Deborah said...

Beautiful photos. I'm hoping to get out for some nice snowy shots tomorrow, since it's been snowing here all day.
