I have not been out taking pictures recently,so I went back into the archives and pulled a few from there.
All of the pictures in today's post were taken by Jake,on an early morning walk around our town,back in 2006.
The first picture is taken,looking west down the main street of our town.
Note all the snow in these pictures. This is the way it usually looks around here at this time of year,BUT,not this year.
We have a dusting of snow,but lots of dry grass and bare ground showing.
The following pictures were all taken in our local park. This is a very busy place in summer,with kids at the playgrounds and pool,and picnics being had.
In winter it is a place of quiet,and on this early morning it was beautiful.
There is some hoar frost on the trees and that adds a special touch.
The picnic tables stand empty,waiting for the first warm days of spring.
Here is another view.Looks like someone else was in the park.
I am sure glad Jake took these pictures,so that now we can enjoy these pretty scenes.
Shooting in low light tends to make the pictures look more purple than what is natural.
This is the same as the one above,but in a black and white version.
I like this almost as well as the coloured one.
Which is your favourite?
Thought for today:
A SNOWFLAKE IS ONE OF GOD'S MOST FRAGILE CREATIONS,
BUT OH WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN THEY STICK TOGETHER!
