Icy Beauty

The world is born in the spring

rejoices in summer

and bundles its blessings in autumn

But only in the winter

does it learn who it is

    Absolutely gorgeous pictures. When it is cold, we tend to hurry and not see the beauty around us. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah I left the sprinkler on one dry winter and woke up to a back yard winter wonderland. It was beautiful, magical and stupid!

    The Lake Erie bridge is both beautiful and mysterious. And it’s just ice.

    Mitch, I’m from Michigan and we are close enough to Lake Michigan (which has numerous light houses and piers) that someone is always posting a photo of the latest scene. South Haven, Grand Haven, etc. Some of them feature waves frozen in place that reach halfway up the lighthouse. I wish I could share one here in the comments. They are beautiful and spooky at the same time. That windshield reminded me of the frosted kitchen windows in my childhood home. Great photos and captions. thanks again.

    Addendum: The word that comes to mind whenever I see a photo like yours of the lighthouse is “hoary.” :>)

    Deeply profound and so beautiful. I’ve referred to the winter as “narcissistic” but I think I like your posit much better.

    I loved this.
