I love the your snow pictures. Snow makes the everyday seem new. AND there is nothing like taking a walk in the woods after a couple inches of snow. It is magical...Looking forward to this next photo journey!
Dede -- A couple inches of snow is indeed nice; drifts of six feet are a whole 'nuther thing. I am heartily ready for spring.By the end of the next project, that's what it will be!
This business of getting your posts by email is great. Not only do I know the VEP is getting close (if it were a "vernal equinox everyday project", we could call it the VEEP!), it may be possible to actually keep up with this one!The whorls in that second photo give it an amazing sense of motion. I really like it.
Thanks, Linda. Considering the direction of the storm path in relation to the gully, the snow would have gone every which way to Sunday. I think the photo illustrates that very well, thanks to the early morning sun. Though I'm glad I was out taking photos, I'd really rather have been in bed...
Love that middle pic! This will be such a fun way to countdown to spring. New photos to look forward to each day will surely help the cold, dark days of winter pass more quickly.
Oh yay, so looking forward to the VEP! Countdown to spring. Once the holidays are over, despite it being January, it's one of my favorite times - because the sun is headed our direction and all the GOOD weather is ahead of us. Anticipation. Meanwhile, this weekend I was reading about limitation - "We must accept limitation in order to transcend it." And that's what your photos do. You don't go for the BIG picture, you focus in on something simple and in that simplicity is the entirety of the world. Your shots discard the surrounding clutter and make us see the clean lines, the shadows, the patterns.Carry on.
