Sparkling Sunset

Well folks,it's back to more recent photos and ones I have taken.
During the latter days of January,we had a day of milder temperatures with some light rain and then some cooling down,which resulted in trees,grasses and everything being coated in a layer of ice.
I could hardly wait to get out that day to capture this beauty.Unfortunately I had to wait until after my bus run in the afternoon,but as it turns out,that was a good choice.

Every little twig and weed were turned into delicate pieces of art,sparkling in the sunlight.



The setting sun gave me some wonderful images.


I should mention that these photos were all taken within about a mile or two from my town.As nice as the pictures are,the really don't tell the whole story.It was breathtaking.


If you look closely at the outer branches of this tree,you can see the layer of ice sparkling in the evening light.


Just off the road,the weeds in the ditch were stunning.


The row of trees glistened like they were coated with diamonds.


One final picture.I truly wish I could have taken you all with me to see this beauty.


In Job 38:22 we read:
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?
or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail?
(I might add,the treasures of the ice)

  2. YES, this verse fits your post perfectly!! God's speech to Job was really wonderful. You really were in a Winter Wonderland. One, six and seven are my favorites, but all are so beautiful!!

  8. Hi Ruth, In my humble opinion you should submit some of these photos to Department of Tourism, Province of Manitoba. I'm not kidding ... these are great shots and make me want to see your part of the world. John

  9. you did take us with you and I loved each and every one of these. i can't imagine the joy of seeing this in the sunlight. sparkles and droplets and those fantastic trees.. some times we can't capture what we feel when we look at all this glory, but you did it.

  10. You could almost make me love winter with these beautiful photos. They are brilliant! You have taken a normally neutral, less colorful landscape of winter and added the warmth of the sun, highlighting ice crystals and delicate twigs, and casting beautiful warm light which transforms ordinary weeds and trees into beautiful works of art! Thank you Ruth for reminding me there is beauty everywhere (even in winter-ha ha), if we open our eyes and look!
