    Brrrrr, it’s cold out here but that looks way colder!

  2. Alice Pratt says:

    Oooohhh, Eliza, what an intriguing photo! And such subtle colors! Very pretty!

  3. I’m Sitting at the beach looking at your picture Eliza, it is is cool and refreshing πŸ„πŸΎπŸ˜πŸŠ

  4. Christina says:

    Is the snow melting? Your landscape does look very cold. What is the high during the day at the moment.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, our weather has been freezing at night and melting during the day. We have mini-thaws, today is 39F, yesterday it rained, but tomorrow starts a cool trend where the temp doesn’t get above freezing for a week, which is pretty typical for Jan. My world will stay frozen and snowy until March!

    a beautiful photograph, and I love the ripples!

  6. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    It looks like you are having a cold spell – looks nice though!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you! The weather yo-yos between above and below freezing. We’ve had a couple of 3″ to 6″ snowstorms, followed by warmer temps. Yesterday it rained, tomorrow back to cold. Typical New England weather!

      • Murtagh's Meadow says:

        We’re having the odd cold spell interspersed with mild – too mild really for winter. I heard that 2016 was ireland’s warmest year weatherwise! More climate change.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        I think it really is global…everywhere there are weather anomalies. ‘The New Normal.’ 😦

    The first thing that came to mind was a period of warming. Snow melting and dripping off overhead limbs onto the water below. But then I realized the limbs in the image were free of snow. And so the mystery begins… what is causing the circles we see in the water. A beautiful image that pulls me in. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Laurie Graves says:

    Running water through snow. One of my favorite things to see in winter.

  9. Oh, moving water! Ours is very frozen at this point.

  10. Peter/Outlaw says:

    Winter certainly looks beautiful in your neck of the woods! Gorgeous image!

  11. Kathy Sturr says:

    You really do have an artistic eye Eliza! I love the mood of the water three ways all in one capture. It makes Winter look pretty, actually.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kathy. We have to see the best of winter when we’re in the middle of it. πŸ˜‰ It’s 39 today, a mini-thaw. I’m not looking forward to the ground refreezing beyond tonight. Yaktrax are a necessity for the daily hike ’til the next snowfall.

      • Kathy Sturr says:

        I used to use my Yaktrax all the time – those slippery sidewalks in the village were very difficult to navigate. I prefer the flip flops!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Sandals sound so nice and easy. We’re now in a cold snap, single digits at night and teens in the day. It’s the wind that makes it miserable. But back to 40s on Wed! Yo-yo weather!

  12. Love the intersecting circles in the water πŸ™‚

  13. rickii says:

    Thanks for braving the cold to bring us the beauty of Winter.

  14. Kris P says:

    Your garden may not provide flowers in winter but it has no shortage for delightful vignettes!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kris. We’re fortunate to have access to our neighbors’ hundreds of acres of wild land through which we can walk and find all sorts of beautiful things to see. πŸ™‚

  15. Beautiful. I love the roundness of melting snow … all soft edges, circles and translucence

  16. smallsunnygarden says:

    A beautiful photo, Eliza, and a reminder of the beauties of a snowy winter. Stay warm, though! πŸ™‚

  17. Trail Walker says:

    Great tagline, Eliza (My Own Paradise: Life on Seven and a Half Acres). It really makes your place sound like a paradise! This picture for Wordless Wednesday is beautiful and fits the tagline perfectly.

  18. Brenda says:

    I also couldn’t figure out what caused those overlapping circles. Melting snow drips! Of course. So many beautiful patterns out there when we take the time to look.

  19. This one just pulled me right in. Love the contrast of raindrops and snow and nice. Beautiful capture, Eliza! ❀

  20. Beautiful photo! I can almost feel the cold!

  21. Dalo 2013 says:

    Nothing quite the like poetic scene of a creek in the depths of winter. Wonderful photo Eliza, brings the quiet, cold but refreshing feel of winter. Wishing you a brilliant 2017 ~

  22. Jewels says:

    Beautiful, Eliza!

  23. Bun Karyudo says:

    It looks beautiful but c-c-cold!

  24. This is one of those photos that stirs something within me. Just beautiful!! Thank you for sharing! πŸ˜€β€πŸ˜

  25. Love the gold reflection and many ripples!

  26. alexraphael says:

    Such a cold setting but gives me a warm feeling.

  27. That is a beautiful, wonderful image…now…where’s my coat? Brrrrrr. πŸ™‚

  28. The suburbs of Philadelphia. However when I viewed the picture it was almost sixty degrees here. So technically I was living in a warmer clime at the time! πŸ™‚
