Home Again

It wasn't a typical winter retreat for us — a lot of visiting and appointments and little snowshoeing and picture taking — but I do have a few photos to post in the next few days. First, let me say that the Internet was horrible, but I did manage to sort of keep up with you through Google Reader. I read from there and stayed away from clicking on individual blogs.

The first shot (below) was taken by Cuppa on the drive in last Saturday, but I'll claim the photo anyway since I specifically requested that she take this shot. I really like it: the snow, the old truck, the winding road, the dim lighting.

Next day, we did go for a snowshoe walk. The sun was bright, and I took this shot of the fence shadows in the snow. Unfortunately, I overexposed, so it's not as good as it could have been.

The Fenceline

As we snowshoed along the old logging road, I stopped to take a few pictures. In this one, a snowy pine cone overhang the path.

Suddenly, clouds covered the bright sun, the wind actually began to howl, and the snow kicked up. I quickly snapped this one and rather like it too.

A Sudden Wind

Now that we've had our winter vacation, I'll begin to wish for spring. I know it's too early, and I try no to wish too hard until March, and even then it's too early. Oh well. See you soon with more photos.

Have you had a course in photography?? The one with the pinecone knocks my socks off!! Loved the all, but That one really is beautiful!!! Glad y'all had a wonderful time!

Those really are beautiful pictures! I kind of miss snow, but not enough to move back to a location *with* it. Your pictures allow me to visit without being cold, having to shovel or paying the utility bill. :)

Welcome home, AC. Welcome back!

You are stalwart folks, go further North to more ice and snow than you already have!!
The snow-covered pine cone picture is outstanding. I can appreciate the beauty but don't miss the cold.

Great photos - the pine cone one looks like it should be on a Christmas card. We have only had a few flakes this year and none of it actually stuck on the ground. ec

I like this collection of photos, especially the close-up of a pine cone and the one with the red building.

I like all the photos. They create a pleasant mood.
