Snowy Day

Gettin’ hammered with tons of snow.  We’ve been wake up to an additional 20cm of snow piled high on top of the fence posts, mail boxes and cars…..everyday!  And spring is only 5 days away, officially that is.  In this part of the world, though, spring doesn’t really get here till May.  It’s not all bad…I just love a winter scene.  These images were taken yesterday during a big snow…I just love how thick it was and how big the flakes were.

It’s fun watching the dogs run through the deep snow, too.  The big boys have no trouble plowing through it, but our smaller border collie cross…..not so much.  She looks like she’s swimming dolphin style in the snow.

Tuk Tuk is the one pictured here.  He’s a favorite with all the kids in our lives cuz he’s so cute and fluffy and polar bearish.

Frosty Day

This winter in our neighborhood, we saw only a couple of days exhibiting the ever beautiful hoarfrost.  Today the length of the crystals on the trees, branches and barbed wire in our yard were displayed at a glorious 1″ long.  Small and delicate, magical and dreamy, these pure white spikes demanded a closer look and an abstracting approach to picture making.  I found that the shape and design of the frost rendered more pure and less distracting in a black and white conversion.  Click on the image above to get to the gallery with the rest of todays work.
