  1. That looks like outside my window! Did you secretely come for a visit? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Beautiful photo ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Anne says:

    This picture reminds me of Robert Frost’s poem, “Mending Wall”:
    Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
    That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
    And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
    And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

  3. tant de neige plaisir de voir, on en manque tellement ici en France
    De plus, votre photographie est un rรฉgal pour les yeux

    Another stunning image, Eliza… You have an incredible eye for these things…

  5. Sun, shadow, and a stone wall – pure New England. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Beautiful snow!!! Uncommonly rare here this winter in Ohio. Can’t believe I actually miss it, but maybe we’ll get one nice snowfall yet before spring. But in the meantime, thanks for sharing some of yours!!!

  9. Love how you captured the snow-covered trees surrounding the beautiful stone wall waiting for the warm reach of the sun.๐Ÿ™‚

    Reblogged this on Blue Dragon Journal.

  11. Nice Eliza! I like the warm sunshine and then the cool of the shade in the same image!

  12. Irene says:

    Very pretty. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  13. Your photo reminds of a house a I once lived in that had a stone wall covered in snow all winter. I love your snow photos, as we never see snow here. But, there is an outside chance of flurries in a day or so as a storm blows by.

  14. Oh, winter in New England!

    A gorgeous image Eliza, we’re still waiting for snow here xxx

  16. Kris Peterson says:

    So much snow!

  17. Ah, cool. Love the little patches of sunlight in the shadow. I hope we get to see a bit of snow some time this winter (just a smidgen you understand).

    A lovely image of unsullied snow drifting up onto the old wall and contrasting with the textured trunks of the trees. It looks so peaceful.

  19. Cathy says:

    I think your winters must be quite stunning at times Eliza – you manage to capture the atmosphere well in your photos. Have you had much snow this winter? We have barely had a sprinkling.

  20. Maria says:

    The title is really good!

  21. Vicki says:

    What a beautiful sight. I feel cooler just looking at the snow online ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Jewels says:

    Lovely, Eliza!

  23. Lovely scene. Youโ€™re getting your share of snow too, I see. ๐Ÿ˜

  24. So New England, Eliza. A snowy woodland landscape with an old stone wall, so ubiquitously seen in our woods walks. Nicely composed too.

  25. Awesome capture, Eliza! Looks like it is here. We finally got snow.

  26. Super! I love stone fences like this one. The snow makes it even more interesting!

      Thank you, Denise! The snow highlights them so well. I often marvel at what it took the men and animals that built them. Sore backs and a few crushed fingers! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. Robin says:

    This is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your snow. I don’t think we’re going to see any this year.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Robin. We awoke this a.m. to a surprise 4″ of new fluffy snow! Rain was predicted, but I guess the band shifted south a bit. Now it is changing to rain and more mixed tonight. Good snowman snow. ๐Ÿ™‚
