The weekend weather

Last weekend left the world white.

For a while, I watched from the window--as a wave from the west brought wind and fluffy flakes, turning the woods into a wonderland.

I went for a walk along the trails, weaving my way around the wide circle,
the few frosty flakes already wet and melting.

The slightest snow, wonderful
on this first day of winter.

Absolutely gorgeous, Nina, as if I can hear the silence for myself.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and gorgeous images throughout the year - they often have brought me comfort and happy thoughts as I go through my day.

Heather said...

Beautiful. Happy Solstice to you, Nina!

Sylvia K said...

Thanks for the lovely walk, Nina! Such beautiful captures! And, yes, I could almost hear the silence, too!

Have a great week and wishing you and yours a very Beautiful Holiday season!

Lovely photos -especially the berries. Winter is nice for a time...especially around Christmas I love it too. (After that,it's services are no longer required and it can leave.) Merry Christmas!

I can hear the quiet :D These are great shots. I esp like those bright red berries. We are buried in snow here.
Happy holidays.

Great images - what Winter's all about.

That's how I like my snow; in pictures.
Love that shot of the woods, with the branches outlined with the snow.

It's beautiful - looks a lot like hibernation, to me! A couple of quick snows here so unlike each of the last two years when 90+ inches fell in a short span of time and stayed for months.

weather - I see a recurring theme. 3 out of the 1st 9 ABC posts, including mine.

Beautiful closeups. I love the blob of snow balanced on the thistle.
I was happy to see the sun today after a week of murky, damp weather.

Winter weather can be frightful, but it also gives one rare photographic opportunities.

Lovely walk through the woods, Nina! The weather seems to be on so many minds these days--we have had the "slightest" of snow, too, and now it's raining. I'm hoping for a white Christmas, not an icy one.

Thanks for sharing, and wishing you happy Holidays!

Snow makes for such lovely landscapes, doesn't it? Driving, not so much:) Happy Holidays!
