Today, January 29,2019, is a bitterly cold day so cold in fact, that schools are all closed in the area.
It was about -33 Celsius this morning, together with a light wind, that made it feel like -47 Celsius.
No matter how you look at that, it is just plain cold.
Even during the harsh winter months there is beauty to be seen.
This first picture is often what I see in the morning, as the golden light of the rising sun filters through the evergreen boughs. It makes me stop and take a second look every time.It is such a lovely sight.
An old tree, with each branch outlined by a layer of fresh white snow, is simply a thing of beauty.
When the conditions are right, the trees bear a beautiful layer of soft snow.This is better than any decorations seen on a Christmas tree.
Seeds that clung to the branches through the winter, now are adorned with caps of white snow.
The beauty and diversity of the sky never ceases to amaze me. On this particular evening the clouds put on a beautiful display of pattern.The setting sun added to the scene.
