Many of you already know that I happen to love winter and snow.
This winter has been so mild and vary little snow,so when we got a few inches the other day,I couldn't wait to get out with my camera and get me some pictures.
I spent about 1 ½ hours outside and had a wonderful time.
Allow me to share a few of my pictures from that morning.
When I see a fresh layer of snow,I get excited like a child at Christmas.
My cameras and I headed over to the Morden Research Station for some quality time with nature. Before leaving my yard I was able to capture a few images at home,
This is the seed head of a Purple Coneflower,all decorated with snow.
Using the Macro lens I was able to get up close and personal with this one.
I found a trio of trees that had these golden fronds on them.
I do believe that these trees are suffering from some sort of disease or from lack of moisture in fall.Whatever the case this bright colour made for some great pictures.
Here is a close-up of one of the fronds. I just loved that gold against the whiteness of the snow.
The snow had crowned each dried flower stalk and turned it into a piece of art.
By the time I was about ready to leave it was once again snowing hard.
I loved being out in this weather.It was not cold and seeing the snow falling all around me was so peaceful.
I had to stop and get a shot or two of the old cabin which is in the Research Station.
I don't think this cabin serves any other purpose,but to be a decoration and a wonderful backdrop for a photographer.
I have had many a strange look when I tell people that I love snow.The first question usually is,don't you drive school bus? I guess because I need to be out in all kinds of conditions they figure that I have to hate snow.NOT SO.
As I am driving I notice all the beauty around me,and snow covers that drab brown of winter and makes our world look clean and new.
Thought for today:
Whatever the season of life,
Attitude makes all the difference.
I think the same could be said about the weather,attitude makes all the difference.
