    So beautiful! Is being born on the winter solstice a bad thing?

  2. cindy knoke says:

    WOW. Looks like The Sierras.

  3. Kris P says:

    That’s a perfect picture postcard if I’ve ever seen one, Eliza!

  4. Dawn Minott says:

    Wow. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

  12. Treah Pichette says:

    Beautiful….nothing like the blues of winter (in more ways than one!). But now the sun returns…..

  13. Happy Solstice. Ours is green with the last of the leaves still falling.

    Hi Eliza. Don’t know how I’d cope with that much snow!! Happy Christmas to you. MJ

  15. Alice says:

    Yes: Happy Solstice! We’ve already gained 2 afternoon minutes. The snow looks beautiful….there! Strong trees.

  16. shoreacres says:

    Beautiful. Are those small, smooth hillocks of snow caused by drifting?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Linda. Those are small shrubs like sagebrush, etc. buried under there. Eventually, there will be so much snow that it will look smooth. Tons of snow!

  17. Gorgeous, and that is a lot of snow!

  18. Timelesslady says:

    Beautiful photograph for the start of winter.

  19. ke01341 says:

    And thank you for the gifts you bring to the nature that surrounds us.

  20. Debbie says:

    This is so beautiful it should be a Christmas card, Eliza!

  21. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Glorious image. Happy solstice Eliza

  22. Happy Solstice and happy winter, Eliza. I wish California would share some of its snow with the eastern half of Colorado. We could really use it.

  23. Absolutely beautiful, Eliza!

  24. As pretty as it is, the best view is inside a cosy house looking out 😉. (I’m not a big fan of winter.)

  25. arlingwoman says:

    That is gorgeous. Goodness. Glad I don’t live there. Hope you’re prepared for the east coast version…

  26. OMG is that gorgeous and my kinda winter, may have a different attitude after our winter storm arrives!!☃️

  27. Jet Eliot says:

    Woo-hoo! What a lot of snow! Happy Solstice Eliza.

  28. Pepper says:

    I came back to take another look. This is absolutely gorgeous. Looks like the perfect Christmas card. 😊

  29. Happy Belated Winter Solstice! I love the image. Your vantage point makes the snow seem super deep. All my best to you in 2023!

  30. naturebackin says:

    Gosh – deep and crisp and even! And beautiful too. Best wishes to you for the solstice and for Christmas. Of course we celebrated summer solstice – with ongoing extremes of rain in our part of the country and increased levels of rolling electricity blackouts!

  31. Maria says:

    A magical winter solstice indeed! Wonderful photo 🙂

  32. Cathy says:

    A beautiful photo Eliza. Stay warm! 🤗

  33. Making winter look pretty for those who live in summer temps 🙂 Hope you enjoyed your holiday.

  34. Here’s a curious fact: the latest sunrise and earliest sunset don’t occur at the winter solstice. The latest sunrise comes after the winter solstice, while the earliest sunset comes before it.

  35. That’s a lot more snow than we got. Nice soft round snowy hillocks.

  36. Stunning!! Where is that??❤️

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you! Behind my son’s house in CA. They get SOOOO much snow in the Sierras.

      • Oh wow! California! I have never been – looks beautiful

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Yeah, he went out there and never came back! Can’t blame him as he loves snow sports, but it is quite the haul to get out to see him. Northern CA is just gorgeous along the coast and redwood forests, and the Mojave desert in the south is a stark, but stunning ecosystem. I’d live there if there weren’t so many people, crippling traffic jams and prohibitive cost of living!

  37. Wow and wow! Your son’s winter wonderland breathtaking to look at.
