Enjoying Winter

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.

Love the quote, Shelley... That road looks like a great place for a horse-drawn sleigh ride (like Currier and Ives).... Hmmmmmm!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

I love this photo, but as you know I love the trees along the narrow roads and trails. Felt like you posted this one for me. It is beautiful. Thanks!

Do you like to cross country ski? That road looks like a perfect spot for enjoying a quiet ski out in the woods.

Darla said...

Beautiful, is that the same road as before? Great quote again. I really need some more coffee after seeing that.....brrrrrrr

Great snow photos, we haven't had any snow yet but it could happen any day.

Tina said...

What a place for a walk with those you love. So quiet and serene looking! You've capture a great mood with this shot and your quote says it all ...enjoy! I am enjoying these posts, Shelly!

Here in Australia, we're less than a week from summer!

That shot is a wonderful composition. Well done!

It's so wintery! I love it. Just gorgeous.

We don't get much snow in Kentucky (although we happen to have snow flurries right now). It may snow once or twice in the winter and when it does, it is usually no more than 2 inches. Once every few years we may get 4 inches or so. I enjoy the snow.

It's true: winter was a time probably when less work had to be done, or could be done ... we're not as much in tune with the season's as our ancestors.

What a lovely road...

Betsy - I love Currier & Ives! :-)

Leedra - I do know you like the roads and trails! You have inspired me to seek them out.

B&P - Thank you!

Cedar - I'm a big snow shoer and downhill skier - but am thinking about giving cross country a whirl!

Hi Darla - this the main 2 track road into my in-law's cabin. The other photos were of their long driveway.

John - I'm hoping for some more snow this weekend!

Tina - thank you - so glad you like this!

David - nice to hear from your beautiful part of the world!

Melissa - thank you - I do love the snow!

Robert - I agree with you on that statement!

Denise - thank you!

Perfectly lovely shot. I'm learning to enjoy winter now that I keep my eye behind the camera. Here's from David's.
