Hello from wintry Prince Edward Island

and welcome to Friday’s Fave Five.

Our snow didn’t make it in time to give us a white Christmas, but it arrived  to star in the first Friday Fave Five of 2011!

I love snow in winter – not so much in spring (and we often get it), but winters should be wintry, don’t you think?

For this week’s fff, I’d like to share five of my favourite winter scenes.

1. Freshly fallen snow on a country road

2. A frosty pink morning sunrise

3. Ice crystals sparkling on a bare branch

4. A flash of gold at the feeder

5. and for last, long blue tree shadows reaching across the snow

Well, that’s all for my wintry tour this week. Hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks so much for coming by.

Have a wonderful weekend!

with love,

    I would love to have lovely still, unwalked in snow like that. Such beautiful pictures of it, Kathie. Unfortunately right now we're in the midst of a big snowfall with severly blowing snow so it's not so pretty as yours.

    I love the sunrise photo too – and I went to Barrington College – as my older brother and younger sister did – Maybe you're too young to remember Barrington but it became part of Gordon after we all graduated. I love reading Stillpoint.


  5. Laura says:

    Morning Sunrise is just beautiful! And I love the picture of the bird at the feeder, too. Beautiful wintry moments, Kathi!


  6. Brenda says:

    I love your beautiful pictures but it really looks cold where you are!


  7. Barbara H. says:

    Oh, my, I love that pink one! And the crystal ice on the branch. We had our first ever white Christmas this year.

    Awesome shots! PEI has so much beauty … for those who will see!I also read today that having a bird feeder helps during the January blues.Maybe I should get one.


  9. Ellen – I'd love you to come and walk around that graveyard with me – and along a few beaches – and maybe kayak – and certainly visit A of GG. Thanks Dawn!Faith – I know where Gordon College is – we lived near there for 3 years while my dh went to GCTS – we were very close to it. I use a Canon S5 IS Powershot. A great little camera. I don't have Photoshop but I use the free program Gimp to straighten horizon lines and up the contrast a bit. I'm just learning to use it – I know it does a whole lot more.Thanks Lisa!


  10. Love, love your pictures! We actually did get snow on Christmas day, a first in many, many years. It was special. Have a great weekend.

    gorgeous….I'd love to know what kind of camera you own?? do you photoshop any of the pics? just wondering as my oldest girl, who plans on majoring in Graphic Design at Gordon College (Christian college near Boston) wants to add photography courses. She almost took a class this year at high school but it conflicted with her AP Calculus one so…she really wants to take one in college. She owns a nice digital camera and sometimes does photoshop but for the most part she just takes pics. We love looking at your beautiful pics!! I especially like the sunrise one this week…so pretty! happy FFF


  12. Oh! Frosty Pink Sunrise! Beautiful. Made me gasp. 🙂


  13. ellen b says:

    Just beautiful Kathie. Nothing like snow to beautify our world. Would love to walk amongst those grave stones in the church yard…

    Hi Joanne – that morning picture of the church is my favourite too – I love the way the sunrise reflected on the side of the building as well as the frost on the trees.Thanks Brooke!! I'll check out your facebook page.That's quite a thought Jill! esp for so early in the morning 🙂 I like it – neighbours rising up side by side. Such a mystery eh? Like will our souls rush down to our bodies? I've never really thought about it. I just know we'll be forever with Him.I love wandering around the graveyard reading the stones – ours is quite old for the Island – over 200 years. It's interesting to see all the old names – also a little sad -so many little ones buried there. Hi Sandy – I'm so glad for my camera and my blog to post my pictures. I didn't notice things like blue shadows on snow half as much before.Thanks Karen!


  15. Karen says:

    Gorgeous pictures, every single one! Congratulations on being featured on WebGarden!


  16. I always love your pictures!! We have a woods behind our house and I love to take the same kind of picture with the long shadows from the trees. :)Glad you are enjoying the snow!

    Love your artistic eye and camera work. I used to think church cemeteries were sad, now I think they are a bygone tradition that should have continued. People now shift from church to church and feel no roots of fellowship formed. When the dead in Christ arise from church graveyard it will be quite a testimony. I can't help but think the public "memorial parks" with strangers buried side by side will no have quite the same wonder. Just some early morning first cup of coffee musings from my snow and frosty world.
