I mentioned in the last post that I had gone out on a photography outing with a friend.
Today I will be sharing a few more images from that day.
A few days prior to this we had had some freezing rain.This left a sheet of ice on almost everything.
Here the grasses had remained undisturbed and so still showed that icy coating.
I thought it looked rather pretty.
We had wandered onto an abandoned yard site. This was one of only two buildings still upright.
I think this might have been the house.The interesting thing about this yard is that I remember the people who lived here.They had been immigrants from Russia,and lived very simple lives.
I recall hearing how they still had a lot of fear of being captured by the government,even though now they lived in a peaceful country and community.The old couple has long since passed on to where they do not need to fear anything.
I have no idea what this could have been.It must have been part of a building at some point,years ago.
The rough bricks were falling apart and the trees have grown up around the last part of a wall.
This reminded me of an old fort,a wall to hide behind as you watched for the enemy.
Looking east of this yard,this was the view.Early mornings could be quite spectacular from this vantage point.
As I wandered around the old yard I noticed this little scene.
A piece of snow was caught and held up by a few blades of dry grass.
Nature creates it's own beautiful scenes.
Thought for Today:
Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.
