Just A Little Longer.

I promise the snowy theme will be nowhere in sight very soon. But it is such a rare treat here to have so much snow for so long that I cannot resist it. So bear with me just a wee while longer.

Any regular readers here will be very familiar with this view.

So I thought a slight change of view might be nice. This is the same mountain, the Sugar Loaf, but up close. I took these on Friday while visiting some friends who live at the foot of the mountain.

It's a constant in our lives, a sentry on our horizon.

For more views take a peek here and what about here and finally here.

Ciara, I really can´t understand your fascination of snow, I am so happy that we dont have any here right now.....After Christmas we had a lot and really cold -17 C...I know that I´m selfish because the children loves it, but all the clothes makes me crazy....
Have a nice weekend!

I love snow too. I never tire of looking at it. I don't know if it is the contrast with the leafless, winter trees and shrubs, or how it makes everything looks new again.

My husband grew up in Connecticut, which I know doesn't get as much snow as some places, but he spent his childhood winters shoveling the driveway, splitting logs in the snowy yard for the stove and delivering papers on his bike in the freezing morning before school and he still loves snow!

I makes me think, you are born with a love of snow or not. And if you are, the first fall of winter will always take your breath away.

That looks like a real sugar loaf. Are you sure you did not just set it up in the kitchen?

Don't you just love the way a snowfall changes the light?? I should think for a photographer like yourself, that would be a treat indeed! Have fun!

How enchanting! That snow is a sight for (very hot) eyes.
