    That is an amazing photograph Eliza! You definitely have “an eye” for beauty.

    The blue is so alluring and tranquil, not just because of its pattern, I think. Quite a beautiful scene, especially with the frozen river.

  4. So beautiful Eliza, I swear I could almost feel the temperature drop a couple of degrees here in sweaty Sydney!

  6. Amazing! So beautiful—you are so blessed to be able to walk through the woods and along the river, and I know you know it! Wonderful photo! To capture the winter blue! WOW!

  7. Ummm, I hope you are not walking too close to the river. Although I suppose it is frozen solid as can be. Are you snowshoeing to get these beautiful shots?

      Safety is #1 with me (to the point of wimpiness!). When my son had a snowmobile he actually drove along the edges. As you can see from River Ice, the ice is quite thick. Supposedly 2″ will hold a man. It is not a deep river, few places would I consider scary, but it is cold and that is enough reason to stay off it. My active imagination has me envisioning the current pulling me under the ice. 😦 Motherhood activates the danger instinct – now it is permanent.
      Most shots are taken from our trails. With the deep snow, it’s a lot of effort to go off trail. Once we snowshoe the path a few times, we don’t need the snowshoes. My knees are none too happy with the whole business, however. Longing for terra firma. 🙂

      • OK. Just checking. Clearly my mother hen protective instincts are not required in your case. I didn’t realize the snowshoes packed things down in such a manner that you can use the paths now. I guess that’s something. We are supposed to get real snow this week. The entire state is in a tizzy. We’ll see school cancellations before the first flake flies.

        Yes, northerners are amused by the hubbub. But if you don’t have snow tires, it is a good idea to stay home.
