More Winter Beauty

I continue today to show you more of the beauty we had in early February.
I know that many of you have just come through,or may still be dealing with severe winter weather and cannot find much beauty in it.My heart goes out to you.Ice,in particular can be so very dangerous and destructive.
I assure you that what we had in this area was not dangerous nor destructive,but it did result in a lot of beauty.I want to add that our winter is not over,we often get our heaviest snowfalls in March.
For the next few minutes try to just see the beauty which I saw on this particular day.

 I have shown pictures of this track before,but I do believe these are the first winter photos I have.
This is the way the camera saw it.

And this is the same scene turned into a black and white.

I will keep the commentary to a minimum,as the pictures speak for themselves.





We have a buffalo farm not too far from town.I thought they looked quite relaxed,even during the snow and cold.


The next three photos are taken at the local golf course.


Strange,but I didn't see any golfers on the course that day.


The spent Hydrangea blossoms at the parking lot of the golf course,catch and hold the snow.


Hope you all enjoy a safe and pleasant week.

  1. They are all gorgeous, but the one with the train track is a standout for me. Both versions are beautiful and I would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite. Snow is very rare for us, so I always enjoying seeing winter in the northern parts. But I do understand how you could tire of all the work that goes with it.

  2. Glad I'm inside, cozy and warm, as I look at your lovely photos! We're a melting mess at present, but will probably still get more snow too - just like MB!!

  3. Hi Ruth, I am a first time visitor to your blog. I enjoyed the snow covered scenes and you have captured them beautifully. Over here in Malaysia, we are now having very hot weather.

  11. Those are some awesome snow pictures, Ruth! Thanks for posting them as we won't have scenes like that here. They are still forecasting some icy conditions for tomorrow and we have some short little icicles on the eaves of the house, but that's all so far.

  12. So you will have even more in March! Oh no! I love the train tracks in the snow, both versions. They are my favorite. What a different look the snow gives them. My next favorite is the one after the tracks, the glorious pine tree and fence. How are you doing, are you still wearing the brace thing?

  15. The snow sure makes everything beautiful. I'd rather have snow in the winter than look at everything dead and brown. I'm one who enjoys the snow. Though I am getting a bit tired of it about now.

  16. You show the beauty of winter so well, Ruth. I like the wide open spaces you captured with your camera. I think those hydrangeas are a little chilly!

  20. Beautiful.. I love the train track and seeing the buffalo out there. Just like our deer.. only heftier. ;)

    I suspect golfers would be out there if golf balls weren't white.

  21. Lovely snowy photos, Ruth! And what is wrong with those golfers?? It was such a beautiful day!! LOL.

  22. This looks like the same kind of snow that we had...wet and heavy. Absolutely breathtaking shots and love the railroad track one. You are right, it's hard to distinguish between the black & white.

  23. Hi Ruth, Did I ever tell you that I took ViaRail's "The Canadian" from Vancouver to Toronto? Your first two pictures remind me of that trip. I did that in March and there was still plenty of snowy scenery in parts of Canada. Beautiful photos! John
