Winter Beauty

“Winter Beauty” Is that an oxymoron?

To me, it depends on the weather. When there is a series of gray days with little color in the landscape, and I have to bundle up my ears against the cold, that is not beautiful.

But winter beauty is:
- a blanket of snow quieting the world,
- the sun coming up (or out from behind clouds) onto a snowy landscape,
- the silhouette of a deciduous tree against the blue,
- trees laden with snow,
- a leaf caught by a storm and now lying partially covered by snow crystals,
- mist that shrouds the ground and creates an interesting sense of perspective.


  1. Well Laura-new-to-blogging, you are off to a nice start. That's a nice sharp image that captures the wintry scene.

  2. Congrats on your silver over at GGW!

  3. Congratulations on your GGW win. This is beautifully sculptural.

  4. Laura, so pleased that Alan selected your photo. Welcome to the blogging world, and it's great to find you here after meeting at Chanticleer in October.

  5. Congratulations, your image is so striking. A well-deserved win.

  6. I just found your entry on Debra Balwins site. LOVE YOUR WORK... I hope to book mark you at my new garden site.

    LOVE THIS image! Photography makes the snow SUPER FUN doesn't it?!

  7. Congratulations. As soon as I saw your entry I knew your beautiful photo would knock mine out of contention. They're very similiar, but yours was better.
