Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #107: Winter
My first winter in college, away from my coastal upbringing was an eye-opener. Living in the cold, monochromatic climate brought home the words of Thomas Wolfe in Look Homeward Angel when he described the “bleak bare prison of the hills.” Well that was then and this is now and I’ve developed a whole new perspective.
I’m always excited by the sight of snow in any amount, even flurries are a thrill. And, of course, winter means the Christmas holidays, which I absolutely love. Here are a few of my favorite things. Hover on each pic for a description.
What, no Pippi in the snow pics??? Love the photos and the descriptions!
TXS. Can you imagine if I took her out! She liked wearing her sweater, it was cold.
Being in 95 degree weather, this looks really refreshing.
TXs Ken – glad I could provide a moment of relief from the heat!
I love the snow too.
Your snow covered for trees make me almost wish we had a real winter. But then I remember the cold that comes with them and remain content in the south! Lovely ode to winter
I love winter and it’s snow-covered trees. Love the glisten…it’s so cheery b/c it reminds me of my childhood growing up in suburban Chicago. You must get some mittens for your kitten!!😻
Lovely pictorial of winter!❄️☃️❄️
Beautiful and iconic shots of winter. I love your first image with the threatening clouds, and the second with the ice-covered branches. And of course, all your snow shots. Wonderful shots of winter.
Thanks so much Patti- I’ve always loved the shot of ice on the branches. It’s a shame something so beautiful can cause so much damage. I really appreciate your feedback!
You’re very welcome.😀
