And Still, It’s Winter. February 19, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

We had another “snow event” last night and into this morning, getting perhaps four inches of messy wet stuff.

The sunrise was cloaked in clouds and thus unremarkable, until the mists climbed the draws toward the light:

morning fog

…and eventually dissipated into a patchwork of blues and grays:

ridgeline in snow

A red-tailed hawk waits patiently for breakfast:

Even still, Spring is hovering nearby, and I’m inclined to enjoy the last of this Season of the Long Nights.

You’re making real winter more and more acceptable to me. We’re in the process of planning a Nova Scotian future but I’ll miss the Portland springs which last from Feb to June. Last week I saw snowdrops.

Susan, that sounds luscious!

But NS is an amazing place full of tradition and natural wonder, so I’m happy to hear that as well!

Ladies, thank you all for your kind words. 😉
