Winter seems long at times. We get tired of the cold, the snow and the inconvenience of having to put on extra layers to go outside, but, winter does have a lot of beauty.
When a dense fog hits the area, combined with just the right temperatures, the result is some gorgeous displays of hoarfrost.
I would have loved to have sunshine and that beautiful blue sky, but this is pretty cool as well.
The frost covered tree branches fade into the grey sky.
Two lines of trees draw the eye towards the far end.
This tree is often referred to as 'The Tree' at my house. It stands close to the Pembina Valley and is just so picturesque.
As I approach the drop down to the valley, I notice this little tree. It has likely been there for many years, but it took a layer of hoarfrost to make me notice it.
Every second brings a new beginning,
Every hour holds a new promise,
Every day gives us new hope.
