Long White Wait

brief fall colors
'til snow and cold take their toll
leaves drop
ice forms
a long white wait begins

  2. NOOOOOOO!!!

    LOL

    Seriously, winter is beautiful, but I can wait. We have a couple more months of fall in Virginia - I hope.

    Nice photos to prepare me. :)

  3. "A long white wait" . . . I like this mental picture I have. White as far as the eye can see, quiet, crisp, clear . . . I can only imagine, as I've never been in a place where it is like that, but, I think at your altitude and where you are, this is your winter. Am I right??

    Beautiful photos.

  4. I already felt it this morning, also in The Netherlands we had our first morning frost on the gras. It will start.

  6. Great shots. That blue on the first one...I could fall into it and never come back! We have shirtsleeves weather at the moment which seems to have dried all our Autumn colours up, but the ends of each day have a chill about them.

  9. We are still quite aways from that, but there is a difference in the sky, and the air.

    I think it would be so nice to see snow off in the distant mountains most of the year.

  16. We don't have much in the way of changing seasons here (mostly fog) so I'm enjoying them vicariously in your great photography

  18. I love that. "long, white wait". I'll remember that and think of it when the time ground is white. your photos are lovely - I especially like the second one of the saplings. beautiful shots Barb. I really love the fox photos in your previous post. it would have been very difficult for me to turn her away with eyes like that; and I agree that it's not wise to feed wild animals. it's not a good practice and I don't like when people do it because as you say, it creates a dependency that isn't good in the long run for the animal. but those eyes! happy day to you Barb.

  23. The Rockies are hard to beat for beautiful fall color and winter snow! Nothing quite like a long winter. Something I look forward to. Very nice photos!

  24. For a brief moment I can also enjoy the golden colors. The leaves glow as the sun hits the leaves!

  25. Hi there - great set of pictures. Some people may think I'm mad - but the long white of winter would be a real blessing on 100 degree days!

    This is what I like about these blogs - the windows they give into other places!
