Yes, I know….another image of snow! But, I felt this image warranted a post to itself. Do you see what I captured? I was using a narrow depth of field which was a mistake, but I still managed to capture a miraculous sight. Be sure and look at at the snowflake in the lower righthand corner of the image. I thought it was special to have captured this particular snowflake in the month of February!
If you are like me, you are tiring of all of the winter images of snow, ice, and cold drab days…despite those feelings, however, I still love the beauty of snow. I love the fact that when it snows the winter world seems brighter and full of hope. Sunlight is a necessity of happiness to many and the snow helps brighten our world when the days seem long and dark.
We had a little over 13 inches of snow yesterday! My children were out all day and of course had the times of their lives. Snow aids to winter creativity. The opportunities in snow are endless and if there is something to do in snow, kids will find it and enjoy it. My boys spent most of the day with friends but my daughter had fun with my husband and I here at home. Here are just a few images of our time outside.
“Kindness is like snow – it beautifies everything it covers”- Unknown
“When Christmas bells are swinging above the fields of snow, we hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago, and etched on vacant places are half-forgotten faces of friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.”- Ella Wheeler Wilcox
