Snowy Lake

The lake at our log cabin already has a thin layer of ice and is lightly dusted with snow. I am looking forward to seeing the wildlife that the white background and the bare trees will reveal. Last winter I saw a coyote walk across this lake in search of food. I am hoping he makes a return visit.

Well looks like winter for sure. We should get up to 50 by noon. We are at 30 now. That s the way our winters are, not beautiful like yours.

That would make a neat postcard picture, or even a Christmas card. Is that your cabin in the background?

Beautiful.

Is that eagle eating a deer?

Darla said...

Just beautiful, I love these photos so much. I was wondering how close or far is your nearest neighbor? and then I think I see something on the left side of the photo, maybe that'a a neighbor?

You are right, so much more is revealed when the trees are bare. It's interesting to drive along the back roads and see old cellar holes, a little cemetery, and other things we don't notice when the trees are in full foliage!

How peaceful and beautiful!

This picture is so serene and makes me want to curl up in front of a fire with a blanket, cocoa and a good book.

LOVE the Eagle on the deer carcass. How far away were you? Very cool pic.

RW - I like the pure snow too!

B&P - We will be in the 20's this week - brr!

Ginger - Great minds think alike! I did have xmas cards made of another photo of my cabin in the winter - I'll be posting it on my log cabin blog. :-)

Leedra - yes - there's a guy that collects road kill deer and puts it out for the eagles to feed on in the winter.

Darla - we have a neighbor 1 wooded lot away - so we have plenty of privacy - but someone is still close enough to visit. :-0

Cedar - I'm hoping I can spot those eagles and owls easier!

Mildred - thank you!

Ashley- that is one of my favorite things to do! :-)

Shellmo said...

Hi Denise - I was about 20-30 feet away - had to use the zoom lens.

Absolutely gorgeous! As I've said before, I am so jealous!!!

Ms. Hays said...

Oh this is a very pretty picture! It would look excellent as an 11X16 hanging over the mantle!

Ms. Hays said...

So that's what the header pic is... road kill FOR THE ANIMALS! OH OK! Well, that explains it - what a kind & thoughtful thing to do! WOW! I love eagles, I just didn't get the pic til now!

Alex and Alicia said...

I wish we were getting the kind of snow y'all are getting. :)
