December Blizzard

When the snow stopped falling yesterday at about midday, I decided to take a walk.  The panorama when I left the house was lovely.

Then the wind began to blow.  It was a challenge to keep my lens dry.

It was too deep in most places to walk in the field, so I kept to the road.  I came to an orchard, where a stand of spruce shielded me from the relentless wind.

There was a frozen apple in one of the trees. A bonus for some lucky deer when it finally falls.






Orchard in Blizzard, trees blocking wind.

Past the orchard I was back in the wind.  There is a pond where we all swim in the summer.  Sure looked different yesterday.

The grasses were blowing wildly


The air above the frozen pond was filled with snow.  It was beautiful in a wild way, but very cold, so I retraced my steps in the road and headed home.  And the wind and the snow kept blowing.

    Hi Diane: I am new member to PWP and found your blog from a posting on their’s. What lovely work! The snow scenes are gorgeous and I am intrigued by the bamboo shots. I am glad I found you and will visit again soon.
