winter by the sea

We had a lovely snowfall last night, the thick wet kind that sticks to and stays on the trees. After I shoveled the car out, we took off to do many errands. Everywhere we drove we were treated to scenes from a winter wonderland.

This little house across the street from us is always a pleasure to see when I open the shades in the morning. The color of it lets me imagine I am in Scandinavia, and the architecture reminds me of Cape Cod. (It’s called a ¾ Cape Cod house, because two windows are on one side of the front door, and one window is on the other side.)

Snowlight everywhere…

1.8.11 ~ Groton Reservoir
1.8.11 ~ Beach Pond
1.8.11 ~ Baker Cove
1.8.11 ~ Thomas Road

A new batch of snow is starting to fall as I write this, but all errands are done and we’re tucked inside with a fresh supply of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Life is good!

  1. Lovely images, Barbara! Something about the variation of greys set off by the straw-coloured reeds always evokes a strong sense of contemplation and mystery. Hope you’re keeping well and best wishes to you!

    1. Thank you, Julian! I liked the way the cool grays highlighted the warm yellow-browns. Somehow noticing the balance between warm and cold made me pause. Indeed, what a great mystery surrounds us…
