What a severe yet master artist old Winter is…. No longer the canvas and the pigments, but the marble and the chisel. ~John Burroughs, “The Snow-Walkers,” 1866

    1. It was 5 degrees out this afternoon as we shoveled a path to the goats, but the sun was shining and everything looked so perfect. I ran in the house to get the camera to document it.( The snow in the dog yard doesn’t quite look so pristine!)

      1. Snow in my neighborhood looks great for about 5 minutes. This is much nicer. Oh, well. It is lovely whilst it is falling. Our forecast calls for a low of -14 on Monday. I have no plans to leave the house that day.

  1. FYI this post looks odd in my reader! Check it out. Are you attempting to do something new? . . . you did. WP can be a puzzle sometimes. I think you can edit it. I will be on the look out for how it turns out.

      1. It was very long with bullets for Facebook and various things. It was stretched out. My WordPress has been very slow and strange for the last couple of days. Maybe this is a new “strange view.”

        Let’s see how thing look tomorrow. I will send you a full and complete report!

  2. These are such dramatic shots. I love the long shadows, especially. We had 48 hours of snow, then, suddenly, the sun came out. I couldn’t get to my camera fast enough to catch the shadows.

    FYI – Elephant, WordPress has been very odd the past week or so for me. For a few days, my icons all disappeared when I was composing a post. I like WordPress. Have used it long enough to realize that things tend to get just a big off kilter around New Year’s, then, poof, all okay. Hope this helps. Penny
