This tree has a commanding presence in our neighborhood. Can’t wait for the leaves to return this spring.

I can handle the cold when it’s nice and sunny (because you get nice pictures like these at sunrise):

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:

Winter Gazebo   2 comments

I pass this gazebo every time I walk our dog through the woods of Vermont. Finally I’ve taken a picture of it that I like:

New Snow in Vermont   1 comment

We didn’t get as much as snow as CT (32 inches/80cm!), but still got nice fluffy snow that blanketed everything:

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.

It’s now so cold that the saltwater is freezing, leaving interesting ice formations on the beach at low tide.

Heading Home   3 comments

These geese were making a few passes over the field behind our house during sunrise, and then they disappeared beyond the horizon. Hope they found a warm place to set down.

The frosted forests of Vermont would have made the perfect setting for the ice princess in the Chronicles of Narnia.

I love the festive mood that all of New York gets into before the holidays. It’s especially nice on a crisp, cold fall night. Here are a few of my favorite spots in mid-town. Happy Holidays!
