Snow at the Lake, again

We continue to have beautiful, gentle snowfalls of about three-to-six inches nearly every day. The snow changes everything, all is new, and you (I) want to take a thousand photos . . .

The lake is frozen. Snow covers that vast expanse (in the background here):

I had been out on cross-country skis; that's my husband in the photo, on snowshoes. Afterwards, he said, "I don't really get the point of snowshoes."

The vistas are surreal and the close-ups are magical. These are down at the lake's edge:


And me, I am twenty feet tall:

Night, all . . .


  1. I did not realize how tall you were! We barely have an inch of snow here. The lake is something when it is frozen over. I remember putting on ice skates and taking a friend and a blanket way out there...letting the wind send us flying...a winter sail boat. Of course that was when there was no snow on it and it looked like black marble. Such memories.

    I have some questions for you and will email them.

  2. What a wonderful series of magical snow images. I love them all.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! LOVE.

  4. Hahahahaha! Ya, that's a hilarious shadow shot. Makes me smile.

  5. I'm waiting to hear your response to your husband's comment about the point of snowshoes.

  6. Kathy: I said, "Tomorrow, let's try boots."
    Lori: Love those images you remember. . .I would be afraid to skate out to the middle of a frozen lake.

  7. Beautiful! I find myself wondering how many poems have resulted from the lovely weather you are having.

    I sure hope the snow they are calling for on Sunday does not disappoint. It's already long overdue.

  8. I will admit that there is something special and beautiful about fresh snow...3-6 inches a day? You're going to be buried if that keeps up!

    This is a great set of images, Sharon. I've never been able to figure out snowshoes, either!

    Well, I've got to run. The sun is coming up, the sky is clear, it's cool, but golf awaits!

    Have a great day!

  9. Oh these are lovely! I espeically LOVE the bench and the 2nd to last shot. Hope you have a wonderful day!

  10. So beautiful! You get the best/worst snow in that part of the country. (Though Buffalo gets all the credit. ;)

  11. So pretty...must be a lovely spot to write.
