Winter Views. January 28, 2011

Here in The Berkshires we’ve been getting a pretty good dose of Winter.  It reminds me of the Big Snows of my childhood memories, and frankly, I like it.

January has been both snowy and icy, with the trees up in the hills encased in ice for the last many days.  Here are a few shots of that.

Mount Greylock, our highest point, from a distance:

That’s the Veterans’ Memorial Tower and the AMC’s Bascomb Lodge on top taken from miles away, courtesy of Gizmo.

A roadside maple magically encased in ice fog:

A barn slumbering in the stillness of snow:

Farm machinery takes a break:

A logging operation awaits warmer weather:

The main road to/through Upper Florida glows in late afternoon:

A fox’s trail through deep snow:

And finally, as the day ends, a look back toward where i began:

Despite the travails of winter living in these parts, the beauty of it keeps me here.

Thanks for sharing my day.

Thanks. Yeah, I liked that one as well. And the fox trail in the snow.

I didn’t know that was a fox trail until you told Sherry. The ice on the trees by the road is especially pretty.

I remember major winter snows from my childhood in Ontario.

No…thank YOU for sharing your day with us.

Stephanie, welcome! It’s always a lift to hear from new commentors – it’s all too easy to imagine that the half-dozen folks who regularly give me feedback are the only ones who visit my humble abode.

I hope winters in Oregon give you something interesting to look at besides your otherwise spectacular scenery. (Did I get that right? I’m just learning to look at IP addresses and such.)
