Walking the dog at the same early, but now darker, time (6:30), and during a recent snowfall, provided new perspectives:

This lovely spot outside our house is even quieter in winter, when the snow smothers all sounds.

Frozen Beach   1 comment

I got a taste of what it must feel like to cross the Arctic ice when I walked across the frozen bay of our little town beach (for 2 minutes). The tides caused much of the ice to break in unusual formations, as seen in the second picture.

I left my house under blue sky on Monday. An hour later I was driving through a heavy snow storm. Will winter never stop in Connecticut?!?

Winter Creatures in Montana   3 comments

This moose didn’t seem to be too concerned about me taking pictures. The other creatures actually enjoyed it (giving me some practice with action shots).

Big Snow in Big Sky   1 comment

It was SO cold that the lifts couldn’t run because the back-up power runs on diesel, and the diesel fuel was too viscous to run through the engine. Had to wait until 11am when it was only -15 degrees!
Needless to say, I rarely removed my gloves to take pictures, but here are a few, shot with the iPhone app Hipstamatic.

The winter storm is providing some (but not many) photo opportunities, as I don’t venture far from home. Here are two shots from the neighborhood.

Goodbye, Lovely Vermont   1 comment

Tomorrow ends my last winter visit to Stowe, VT. Haven’t taken too many pictures lately because I feel like I’ve exhausted the possibilities, and because skiing has taken precedence. But here are a few that I liked from this week:

Ice Flowers   Leave a comment

At -20 degrees at night in Vermont, the windows get nicely frosted. Brrrr!  Ice flowers are  less common these days, since everyone now has double-paned windows, where these formations rarely show up. These were on a single-paned garage window.
