Shapes in the snow

Last weekend, big snowflakes filled the sky and silently adorned the dried stalks and leaves of Lilac and Maple trees, Black-eyed Susans, and Grape vines.

The sky cleared briefly at sunset and the days began to feel just a little longer.

Subtle, soft colours filtered through the bare trees and reflected on newly formed ice.

    Beautiful shapes, lines, colours and details you have discovered here. I bet those grape vines kept you engaged for a while – such lovely, lovely lines.

  2. So lovely, Cait! Each one is wonderful in it’s own way. I love seeing the individual snowflakes! And the sunset is stunning! We are expecting snow and freezing rain in Georgia tomorrow. Hoping to get a few photos!

    Those snowflakes look large and wet. I hear some parts of Canada are having a relatively warm winter; is that the case near you?

    • Yes, it has been a warm winter with not much snow where we are, but we’ve gotten quite a bit this past week. Maybe we are going to get some winter weather at last. Thanks for stopping by!

    That is my favorite kind of snowflake, but I haven’t seen any yet this year. Great shots, especially the closeups.

    The second photo is just stunning. And your words matched the quiet feeling of the snow. Beautiful!

    I love the ice crystals, and the golden light on the new ice is a wonderful scene!

    glad you are finally getting some snow up there! i think if it is going to be cold and dark, there might as well be lots of snow!

    These are gorgeous—they really catch the delicate lightness and fluffiness of that kind of snow. I’m delighted to find your blog via your finding my blog—well, I think that makes sense…

    Beautiful photos, I love being outside when the snow is falling and seeing the patterns of the snowflakes. We had a snowstorm here on Sunday and went out hiking in the woods for hours while the snow was falling.

    • Hey Lyse! It sounds like a good hike, I’m glad to hear you’re getting some snow, too. Especially fun to be in the woods with the snow falling, I’m sure. Thanks so much for visiting 🙂

  10. Those first two photographs are particularly entrancing, Cait, dense with texture and colour and delicacy. Beautiful each crystal in its place.

    All lovely pictures, Cait, but that first one, with the single snowflake clinging to the tip of the leaf, exquisite!!! That lens has made it possible for you and your camera to share such minuscule wonders. Stunning!

  12. Beautiful photos! What you forget if you don’t see snow a lot, is that you can actually see the pretty snowflake shapes. Thanks for the close-ups.
