Oh. my. goodness!

We’ve had some simply gorgeous winter days here on the Island.

Sunlight, blue sky, crisp fresh air, sparkling snow and not too cold ~ around freezing.

So I’ve been out with my camera ~ having such fun!

I wish that you had come along.

But since you couldn’t, I’ll share my favourites with you here in our weekly Friday Fave visit.

I’ve had a terrible time narrowing down to 5.

But it’s good discipline – right?

1. I tend to favor macro pictures but I love the sweeping view in this scene. The yellow farmhouse stands out against the dark wood, the snow covered fields and the brilliant blue sky.

2. Ah macro – love it! Tiny tracks in the fresh snow. I wonder who made them? Maybe a mouse scurrying through the snow to its snug little winter den.

3. I had to lay flat in the snow for the above picture ~ which explains the next picture.

I had to include it because it reminds me of my childhood days – playing in the snow and coming home covered with snow, soaked, cold and totally happy. And my mom would say “where are your snow pants??” 🙂

4. The play of light on the pine cones. Mmm ~ macro again. I love the tiny details.

5. What? Number 5 already?? What about the blue sky picture? The cat sunning in the barn door? The horses’ shaggy winter coats?

oh well

I’ll save them for another day. And I’ll leave you with the delicious sound of a brook in a quiet wood.

(Pause the music on the sidebar – or listen to them together – they blend rather well 🙂

I really hope you enjoyed your visit this week. Thanks so much for dropping in!

For more lovely Friday faves, visit Suzanne at Living To Tell The Story.

Happy weekend!

with love,

    Instant peace washed over me as I listened to your music and then looked at your pictures, and read you gentle words. I love how you have posted a precious Psalm. Thank you for an especially lovely site! I WILL be back! God bless you.

    You made me laugh out loud with the photo of your snow-covered jeans! I laid flat in the snow to take pics of our nativity set in the snow in December, and was covered and soaked and frozen! We DO have neighbors close enough to see, too, but perhaps by now they’re used to seeing me in the yard doing camera gymnastics.A great set of winter pics, and I *love* the stream!

    So beautiful! That first picture os amazing. Look at that expanse of pure untouched snow. What is it about untouched snow that just brings such peace when I see a pic of it.But that certainly doesn’t take away from the footprints either. So cute finding those. And you made me laugh getting down in the snow like you did. And with no snow pants. LOL.

    I love the powdery crystal character of the snow you’ve captured in these photos. I’ve never spent more than a week in snow so I don’t get to observe it as you do! And, by the way, where <i>are</i> your snow pants, young lady??
