Frozen

It was a confluence of meteorological events, a sunny and calm, foggy, frosty day. One we have never seen in this combination. My husband and I were headed out to our daughter’s house, IPhone in hand, but we stopped along the way to take in the scenes.


A pine tree in its frosty spendor looked cold.





A stop by the park was in order on such a day. The sunlight on the frost-laden trees gave importance to every twig against the blue sky.




The white trunk of a birch glowed in the glorious sunlight.




This maple tree had a foggy backdrop.




A tree-lined street invited a photograph and a walk.




We may never see this combination of events again but the natural beauty was committed to memory and much appreciated.

Spectacular scenery, you may wait a long time for those meteorological conditions to coincide again. I saw something like it once but on a day with no snow, just thick frost on every twig.

Your weather sounds wonderful to me, Ginnie.

Ginnie said...

Absolutely unforgettable, Marie! We had one such day on December 30, 2016, and from one of those images I made our Christmas card for this past Christmas. So I know exactly what you mean. I wonder if I'll ever see anything like it again. I'm so glad YOU saw it, too.

Wow that looks wonderful, how lucky you were to see that for real! I had to smile at the clear road it wouldn't look like that if we had that snowfall here! Sarah x

Marie Smith said...

It’s a way of life here, Sarah, so we are organized around the snow.
