More snow than I could have ever imagined fell just two days ago. After the storm passed, we’ve been busy moving snow so that life can get back to normal.
The Garden Bird Photography Studio worked far better than I imagined and the variations I can create are endless. But it was time to visit the horses and see how they were doing.
So enjoy the video above and enjoy some of the beautiful scenes I enjoyed a day after the storm.
Best of all was the fox in the morning running on the frozen river looking for breakfast.
“It snowed all week. Wheels and footsteps moved soundlessly on the street, as if the business of living continued secretly behind a pale but impenetrable curtain. In the falling quiet there was no sky or earth, only snow lifting in the wind, frosting the window glass, chilling the rooms, deadening and hushing the city. At all hours it was necessary to keep a lamp lighted, and Mrs. Miller lost track of the days: Friday was no different from Saturday and on Sunday she went to the grocery: closed, of course.”
― Truman Capote, American Fantastic Tales: Terror and the Uncanny from the 1940’s Until Now
oooh man I want to be there! would spend an ENTIRE day capturing it all, Especially in company of the hunting fox 🙂
We would have a blast Andy. And certainly Mrs. Fox would stay just for us. 🙂
Ooop a Mrs! ~waves to mrs fox~!! my apologies Mrs!
Ok..well, it could have been a Mr. Little far to check body parts. LOL
Need a megaphone next time XD
Oh that fox is wonderful 🙂 Love the light in the photo! A delightful video too 🙂 Thanks for sharing the Winter Wonderland with us all!
My pleasure Sarah, so happy you enjoyed this video. Thank you!
Such an awesome storm and the destruction it brings, but it also brings such wonderful opportunities for those who truly look. Finding the most simple and exciting images in a fox on its morning mission.
That simple image ended up being “Explored” on Flickr. All because I only had my landscape lens on. You’re right, it’s having one’s mind, eyes and heart open to the scenes that unfold in front of us. Thank you David for your wonderful comment.
How beautiful! And what better way to enjoy the countryside than on a majestic horse? I fear our cold has now turned into wind and rain, again! ☔☔☔🎑🎑🎑
Wind..I hate wind…Wind sucks !! At least you don’t have to worry about a drought Fatima. Give me rain any day. Hopefully it’s dried up a bit for you by now.
I’m afraid we get the wind too! 😦
So pretty. Even though the snow can be a real headache, it sure does make for beautiful photos.
As it’s the first snow we’ve had this season it hasn’t bothered me. Only when my street wasn’t plowed and I was stuck at the house. Now to explore. Thank you.
An excellent title!!!
Isn’t that a funny name? They came up with all sorts of name ideas for the storm. I liked this one the best.
What a beautiful post. So utterly exhilarating. A touch of magic. Thanks for sharing with us.
Truly my pleasure to share this with you Miriam. To bring beauty into your world is all I need. 🙂
Lovely words. Thank you again.
