It’s A-Comin’! November 26, 2008

I told my Siamese Cousin Bob that I’d share my snow with him when it got here.

And while it’s presently a bit thin, and I’m not yet breaking out the snow-shoes, the visage of Winter is pressing against my window.

Ice-Fog on the hills:


Thin snow on the road:


Ponds freezing in the pre-dawn air:


It’s not fully Winter, and could indeed backslide into some sort of Autumnal malaise, but still, it smells of ice and thin sun and sleep.

So be it.  I’m ready for winter.

Beautiful, breathlessly beautiful! Does remind me of my years in Montana! Thanks for the photos! Happy Thanksgiving, CR!

And the same to you, Sylvia.

There’s so much to be thankful for, amidst the turmoil of our times. I’m inclined to spend at least tomorrow just being thankful for what’s right.

Namaste, indeed.

Okay. Brrrrrrr. Beautiful, but brrrrrr.

Thanks, Cuz!!

I was outside on my sister’s deck this afternoon. Shorts, tee shirt and barefoot.

(no offense to her, but all else being equal I’d rather be where you took those pics)

/goes to revel in imagery/

Oh that is lovely! We have not had that here yet.

6. Bobbie - November 27, 2008

Lovely, lovely, lovely! This is the way I really enjoy snow – in photographs! Don’t really want the real thing.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I agree, beautiful but brrrr. Here it will be 60 degrees.

Golly, dear Cunning Runt, you’ve done it again, making winter look almost inviting. That top shot has selected the green trees in such a way that it makes me want to walk right out into that… never mind the ice. Even when you’re photos are more like journalism (reporting on the weather for those elsewhere) they’re beautiful. I wish newspapers and most magazines could figure that out.

Again, Steve, your Artist’s Eye does me a great honor by clearly seeing things in my work which are sometimes nebulous to me.

Felt, but nebulous none the less.

I hope it isn’t revealing too much to divulge that the words in my posts are usually devolved from the images, and sometimes the uniting “story” is nothing I needed to say, but rather a distillation, a divination of my impressions while reviewing my daily “take.”

Sometimes I wish I could just STFU, but I fear that my images need the value-added boost of a narrative to be worth looking at.

And truth be told, I’m enjoying the challenge of finding a vignette to frame my photos. 🙂

Hope you had a wonderful Thankgiving.

Yes, I did, thanks to the kindness and generosity of my “meat-world” neighbors Frau Biergut and Miz Lu(Mena.) Pies and a beautifully browned and stuffed local turkey done in the electric oven, but all the veggies and root crops done on the wood stove. We sat and talked and drank our way through several bottles of good red wines, snacking on oysters and cheese and Champagne.

I’ll do a Family Holiday Meal on Saturday, which you may get a glimpse of!

I came to wish you happy Thanksgiving, but now I’m so cold I have to go warm my hands. Beautiful photos. So glad we aren’t that snowy yet.

US, this isn’t “real” winter yet, and that’s what I’m looking forward to – the transition from Butt-Ugly Month into the magic of deep, pure whiteness, the silence of ice and the fury of a nice winter storm.

Be forewarned – it’s gonna get mighty cold here at LBT before Spring arrives!

15. Jane R - November 27, 2008

Beautiful! I can almost smell that cold air!
