Crossing through the new fallen snow

 “Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
Mary Oliver

The thick hoar-frost on the bushes and trees indicates that frigid winter temperatures have once again visited the area. A lone traveller braves the crisp outdoor setting on foot  and is able to enjoy the icy spectacles that Mother Nature unselfishly shares with folks brave enough to wander outside and cross into a winter wonderland of fallen snow and glistening trees and shrubbery.. –  gc

    • The hoar frost is my favorite. The filligree of ice on each branch of trees and the hefty covering of snow on the bushes enliven the photos. Thank you for writing Sue. Enjoy the day. 🙂
