    1. Rain is on the way, Irene! Within the next couple of days all the white that I see will be gone. Yay! Temperatures are on the rise and soon I will be seeing grass again. White untouched as you just saw in these photographs yes is very very beautiful I do agree. Yet it is very cold. I am more than ready for the warmth of Spring! 💕🌸💕

    1. I just happened to be very proud of the fact that I am a Shutterbug, thank you very much! It is a passion one cannot explain unless that one has that a bug! Hope your hubby got some good shots. I know I did! Much Love to you this day! 💕🌸💕

  1. I knew these were coming, Amy. I’m so glad you stepped out. You’re right, you didn’t need to go far. In this case, though, I disagree with you. I think those close-in branches help add some perception to the photo that often gets lost in snowy scenes. In any case, I like them all. Thanks for venturing out and for sharing with us.

    1. Dan, thank you for your perspective or your take on my first photograph. I am just super aware of composition when I am taking a picture. I’m glad you enjoyed it as is. And in hindsight I should have in addition showed you the original picture of both of the extremely cropped pictures. Seeing is believing in exactly how much I eliminated in each picture. May you have a great day today! 💕🌸💕

    1. I know, Helen. I saw your post earlier this morning. You probably didn’t see it yet but I left a comment. Dylan is just so adorable! And yes I did find treasures hopefully the last of the season. I am so ready for Spring! Have a great Sunday! 💕🌸💕

  2. Amy, this is most beautiful. You are a real artist and have the eye for the detail. But for some reason, I love that fourth photo the most. Such a peaceful scenery packed in a thick blanket of fresh white snow.

    1. Aw, thank you, Erika. I am very focused on composition for each image I shoot. That means not only what is the focal point but the background as well and how everything is placed. I texted my next door neighbor today as I sent the first picture from this post, asking her if she knew where this was. She said no. She couldn’t believe it is across the street from us. LOL Good thing I did go out yesterday because the pretty white is already melting today. Much Love to you this day!! 💞🌸💞

      1. I can imagine that some areas look so different under the snow that it is not always easy to recognize. Yes, you need to be quick in order to catch such motives. As soon as it is getting a little bit warmer the snow falls off. Thank you, again, dear Amy 💖

  3. The photos are all wonderful, Amy, but I especially love the top one. I agree with Dan that the tree limb adds perspective and acts to frame the picture. The muted colors are awesome – all white and gray with just a wee bit of brown. Just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you, CM. Perhaps I’m getting too critical of my images? SO glad you enjoyed the (hopefully) last of the white. As I write the white is melting. YAY!!! It really looked like Siberia here yesterday! Have a great Sunday! 😘

  4. Breathtaking beauty! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Also, I don’t know what your reasoning was for being out by 3, but around here, it’s to be home by dark — makes me realize how much sunlight we take for granted the rest of the year.

    1. I had someplace to go, Joey. I don’t mind being out after dark. That doesn’t bother me in the least. And I’m glad you enjoyed (hopefully) the last of the white for this year. I must admit yesterday here was gorgeous!!! Hope you are having a great Sunday!! 🤗

      1. Ah, well I like to be home before dark whenever possible. We know we have plenty of snows to go here. We are iced today, so I’ll be staying in, doing laundry and relaxing between rotations 🙂

    1. It takes years of practice and a very very steady hand, if you plan on using a macro lens without a tripod. I’ve been shooting for many years and still I seek improvement. Have a beautiful day today! ☺️

      1. That is a good idea. Maybe I’ll ask for one of those nice macro lenses for my birthday in July. Oh, I just thought of a dog bed mattress. Those are fairly large so long as they are not to heavy. I’ll have to scout out my options. Thank you!!!

  5. Hi Amy 🙂 Wonderful images!! ❤ Ice crystals are very cool. 🙂 My favorite photo in the post in addition to the tiny ice crystals is the snow on the branches of the evergreen tree. I love how evergreens look in the snow. I love how they smell as well. It is one of those peaceful scents for me. When I walk in a grove of evergreens, a deep breath sends me into tranquility space. There is a warm up forecast for later in the week, but the forecast changes so much here that I don't give it much thought other than checking to decide what to wear when I go outside. I know that in a month and 1/2, there will be more warm days than cold ones. I'm keeping my thoughts on that. 🙂 It was sunny and cold this morning when I went out for a walk. The birds like the sunshine and were actively flying around and chirping. Their energy is inspiring! I hope it doesn't get too sloppy and icy out there as the snow melts and you stay well. 🙂 Love and blessings for you. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. I so agree with you about the snow on Evergreens!!! They turn the world into magic, a white world of such Beauty that it takes my breath away! That is all gone today so it is a good thing I captured what I did when I did! I so look forward in smelling Earth soon …. the smell of Spring is intoxicating! I really don’t pay attention to the weather forecasts. I glean my information from looking outside and looking to Mother Nature Herself for my clues. May you have a wonderful day today, Sarah! Much Love and many Blessings to you!!! 💞💞💞

  6. Looks familiar AR….Like my back yard. The entire surrounding property around my house was stark white and frozen this morning. The trees looked like someone had shaken powdered sugar over everything. I guess it was like a fine mist falling that froze on contact. It’s gone now, everything is melted off the trees. Still snow abounds on the ground. We thankfully did not get the predicted downfalls of rain I am so ready for the green hues of spring…Glad you made it out to photograph. Thanks for sharing. I guess the ice comes next 😦 Blessings to you…..VK ❤

    1. Today all that beautiful puffy white stuff is gone. Yesterday was a bit warmer but today again temps have gotten cold. The ice that fell last night is gone as well. I am SO ready for GREEN, too, VK! *sigh* Just the few patches of faded grass I’ve begun to see is whetting my appetite!! LOL Have a beautiful day today!! Much Love! 😘

    1. That little ice crystal is about the size of the head of a pen. Hindsight tells me to have made the effect even more cool was to have posted the original picture to show how drastic I cut into the original. I’m blown away by my camera!! May you have a great day today, NWA! Many NEW ideas are hatching as to what I will be doing this Spring with my camera! Much Love!! 💞

    1. Takes a bow! Thank you, Mark! That ice crystal is about the size of the head of a pen. As I said to someone else, hindsight tells me I “should have” posted the original picture to show everyone the incredible power my camera has and how much of the original picture I cropped out. All that white is gone today with actual patches of faded green grass showing. Yes it was and still is seriously cold. Go stick your head in your freezer …. that ought to give you a really good idea how cold it is here. LOL Much Love to you!! 💖💖💖

  8. I mentioned in a previous post how I miss spring flowers…and now you’ve got me missing snow. I have not experienced such a winter wonderland since January 2013! Far too long. Wonderful to see it captured so beautifully here. Stay warm

    1. Oh yes snow being beautiful as seen here, is still very cold. LOL So happy you saw this post! All that gorgeous white on the trees is now gone. I’m glad I roused myself to get out and capture these when I did. When I’m that sore from the gym, I’m not keen on doing “snow yoga” in order to take pictures. LOL Much Love to you, Lisa! 💝

  9. I actually like the branches in the first picture. That picture somehow says to me there is so much life, so much trust, so much hope that is flourishing from below and above amidst all that frozen world. All your pictures say the frozen emotions are ready to thaw and become part of the flow. The close-up of the ice crystal is absolutely amazing – as if you look closely and deeply at anything and all you find is amazing beauty. Your make the world look so beautiful!

    1. Thank you, Pragalbha! It seems as I view my many photos, branches are a trademark of how I take pics. There seems to be branches, closer then what I am shooting at, in a corner of the image. (smile)
      Your words touch me deeply for it is in looking at the beauty in this world, I’ve learned to live my life in Love, no matter the circumstances. Beauty is my “saving grace”. Emotions regardless of the “season” are valid and true and sometimes are meant to be “frozen” for a purpose found later down the road. If we learned everything at once, we would be so overwhelmed nothing would be accomplished. Thank YOU for adding your thoughts to this post, and may they be seeds on the winds, bringing fruit of wonders to your life. Much Love to you this day!!! 💝

      1. You are very welcome dear Amy. So wisdom, understanding, depth and thrillingly amazing words you bring to me yet again! 🙂
        “Beauty is my saving grace” – this statement of yours has a very very deep meaning for me personally. This platform is a limited one to try to explain more 🙂 I am all smiles at how much you are an affirmation to me.

      2. As you are to me, dear friend. What you say to me deeply moves me in ways I’m unable to convey to you. Just your “energy” alone stirs me. I’ve not had an “easy” life so I’ve taught myself how to focus on those things of High Vibration to stay high in Love and Peace. I’m all smiles too! 😘

  10. Well, if my words are seeds on the winds, you would capture them beautifully with your lens, whether they be frost covered, dew drenched or gleaming in the sun.
    Amy these shots are splendid! You must feel very satisfied that your talents keep shining through.
    I was here yesterday. I have been having WP woes. Likes were disappearing. I noticed some from yesterday have vanished. I hope it’s fixed now, but if I post this comment and the like is gone, I’ll switch browsers and try again.
    Thank you so much for all of this beauty! xo

    1. Oh, Resa, your words left for me to read are splendid! I just LOVE my camera and so I just keep pushing myself to capture in ways I have not done previously before.
      May our WP woes cease, darn it. Things “seem” to be getting back to normal. We’ll see. LOL And you are so welcome for this beauty!! You shine on, dear friend!! 🤗

    1. Thank you, Julie. I’m more then happy to share these images especially with someone who does not experience snow. All that white is gone, or most of it that is, and soon my early Spring flowers will be peeking through the ground. Much Love to you!!! 🌹

    1. Humbly I thank you with all my Heart, Debbie. I LOVE what I do and it shows. My camera is my “therapist” teaching me to transmute pain into Beauty. I was introduced to your blog by my friend Prag. You’ve got a truly wonderful concept in motion! This world needs desperately forgiveness, not only forgiving others, but forgiving themselves. I have spoken about that very subject here. May you have a Blessed Sunday! 💖💖💖

  11. What a beautiful way to capture Winter, one of the most underrated season. Winter cleanses and purifies the air, that’s why the air in temperate regions are cleaner than it is in tropical regions.

    1. I so agree with you that the cold air during Winter cleanses the air. It also kills off a lot of the insects and nourishes the earth with Nitrogen, a nutrient so required to grow beautiful flowers. I have learned to fall in Love with Winter, a season I honestly did not like. No longer true as my pictures will attest. Much Love to you this day! 💖💖💖

  12. How beautiful photos You presented here. I do love them. The second last photo from the end showed a house, which resembles Finnish typical architecture from the 30s, 40’s and 50’s.

    Have a good day!
