There’s no sunshine here on the Island today. In fact, it’s a wee bit nasty outside with high winds and blowing snow.

So I’m checking the archives for some sunlit moments. This was a special one.

Snow Globe

Snow Globe

  I was out with my camera one winter afternoon.  The snow was drifting down slowly and a golden ray of sunlight lit the snowflakes from behind.

There’s a certain someone who brightens up my days just like sunshine and he’s celebrating a milestone birthday today. He’s the love of my life and I’m so happy to share every day with him.

    There’s no sunshine here – just wind and driving rain. I just heard that 100’s are without power, but so far my hotel is still warm and bright!

  7. Kathie you captured the light behind the snow just perfectly. So I’m to asume Spring hasn’t sprung yet? We leave NC in the morning and we wonder if we should head further South or return home. I saw the accident on the bridge today, terrible.

      Our sister in law knew some of those people – they had just left a hockey tournament and headed home in the storm. The whiteouts were awful.

      I say head further south if you’re looking for spring – it certainly hasn’t sprung here yet 🙂

    Amazing catch of the backlit snow. I know what you mean about how the snowflakes turns gold in the sunshine. Kind of like how the world looks when one sees a much loved husband on his birthday, right?

      I’m glad you like them Pam. That second one was a rare moment – I’m hoping it will happen again sometime. If it does I’ll be snapping as many pictures as i can. I don’t think I realized how rare a moment it was until afterwards.

  17. Happy 60th to your husband. He has a kind face, Kathie.

    You did, in fact, catch a couple of magical moments with the first two photos. I had wondered if a special effect was at play only to read that Mother Nature (and your keen eye) caught that special time.

      Yes it was totally Mother Nature – the camera was even on automatic. I didn’t even realize how pretty they would turn out til I uploaded them. If I had known, I would have snapped a lot more!

      Thanks for hosting Sunlit Sunday Karen – I really enjoy it!
