  1. Love it! You caught the light just right on those acorn caps. Hope you are having a blessed weekend.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Sarah. Definitely blessed – a microburst swept through last night, narrowly missing us, so though we lost power, we sustained no damage. Most grateful today! ❤

  2. yes, good light and detail!

  3. tiramit says:

    There’s a story here, I think…

  4. Lovely capture Eliza 🍃🍀

  5. Love the detail – the acorn shells almost look like brass.

  6. cindy knoke says:

    We have them too, just not in the snow. You are observant/

  7. jenanita01 says:

    exquisite detail on those acorn cups, Nature really is remarkable!

  8. Brian Skeys says:

    Almost like gold cups in the snow.

  9. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    A reminder of autumn:)

  10. Anne says:

    A very attractive composition!

  11. Alice Pratt says:

    I wonder where the acorns went? Are they growing roots to make a new tree or if they might have been eaten?

    Hey Eliza,
    This is so simple and clear. I love it!
    I have been on line very rarely since Nov 8. I’m coming back slowly. Somehow, my muse went on vacation that day. I am journaling, but nothing to post. Also wanting to catch up on my friends’ posts, like you! And this one! Beautiful!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Mary. You’ve been missed. I understand your anguish. It is “a time that tries (wo)men’s souls.” For many of us introverts, it is a calling to show up more, which can be tough. Patriotism, which had become a term used by the Right, is now showing up in the Left, in new and unprecedented ways to balance and turn the tide. I have faith that we’ll emerge from this trial stronger than ever. Peace always!

  13. You are such a beautiful photographer. You give us the gift of seeing nature.

  14. InfiniteZip says:

    beautifully perfect ❤

  15. Lovely. Wish that Icould touch them!

  16. Christina says:

    Beautifully captured image Eliza, but oh dear, still the white stuff!!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Christina. Yes, still the white stuff – icy, crusty, treacherous for walking and slower to melt than regular snow. But we’re getting there, day by day!

  18. Robin says:

    Such a beautiful composition, wonderful texture, and I love that light. I enjoy seeing snow, too, since we have had so little of it here this winter.

  19. halfagarden says:

    Is that snow? I’m trying to work out where you live!

  20. it’s just like a nut to lose it’s hat…………! Nice capture!

  21. Kris P says:

    They look as if they were cast in bronze. Lovely, as are all your Sunday offerings!

  22. Beautiful lighting and contrast!

  23. albert says:

    Says you. (i.e., no silence here, except for those who cannot hear. . . well, see)

  24. Gracefully Global says:

    Lovely! I love have vibrant the color is against the white snow.

  25. The colors on those acorn caps are just beautiful – I love that it is almost a metallic copper.

  26. Robbie says:

    The little gnomes left their hats on the snow:-)

  27. I love this most because it reminds me of snake skin. Lovely shot, Eliza.
