Winter on the Prairies

Thank you! A big thank you to everyone who has supported me this year — actually everyone since 2008 when I embarked upon this exciting photographic adventure. There is more to come in 2011. Without your support my photography business and photographic inspiration surely would be hidden away as it was for years (decades). May you and yours enjoy a year ahead filled with energy, enthusiasm, good health, and many special moments with those you love.

“Go to the winter woods: listen there, look, watch, and “the dead months” will give you a subtler secret than any you have yet found in the forest.” ~ Fiona Macleod, Where the Forest Murmurs

“In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want.” ~ an Old Irish toast (those Irish surely have fine toasts and wishes).

A delightful sky and in the lower image, I can recall the crunching of snow as I walked. It looks like the kind that would crunch. Happy New Year.

I like the pristine look of the snowy scene with the buildings. Very nice shot with a fine winter mood. The crevice in the snow has its own attraction. The crystalline look of the snow speaks volumes to the level of cold. Very well done.

Love the sparkles in the snow. 🙂

A very Happy New Year to you!

Two stunning images; both enjoyable for different reasons. The first, so calm and pristine. The second, cold but inviting, leaving much to the imagination. Happy New Year, Diane.
