In this post I want to take a look back at some of the snow we have had.
I almost hate to do this,because as I am getting ready to post this it is 4C or 39F here,and that is early in the morning. I believe we will have a beautiful day.
We have had a few snowy days and since I had been waiting for snow and photo opportunities,this was exciting to me.
As I was getting ready to head off to work,I decided to take a moment and get a night shot of the snow.This is taken right outside my door. I used a flash and like how it shows the snow as it is coming down.
A little later that same day,I took this shot of the lattice around my deck.
I love how the snow sits on each little piece.
Looking up at the tops of the evergreens,you can see the grey sky and also the snow.To some this may look gloomy,but to to me it is beautiful.
Just one more look at the heavy load of snow on the branches.
Somehow this is a look I don't ever get tired of.
On Tuesday of this week I woke up to see my world shrouded in fog. I knew that it would be a photo kind of day.As soon as I was off the bus,I grabbed my cameras and headed out.
This is a spot I see every day on my way to work.It is in the Morden Research Station.To me these trees are so photogenic and on this day as the fog hung in the air,the trees were beautiful.
After spending some time at the Research Station,I headed west to our lake,Lake Minniwasta. This is a small lake,but large enough to supply my town with water.On a road leading to the back of the lake this is what I saw.
I wish I could convey the feeling of that moment.All was calm.not a breath of wind,no sound,not even a bird anywhere.
As I was walking down this road,I felt like it was God and me alone in the stillness of the moment.I loved being up there and did not want to leave,except that my feet were getting cold from getting snow in my boots.
When having a moment like that all I can say is:
Then sings my soul,my Savior God to Thee,How great Thou art,how great Thou art.
