The ground is frozen, void of snow. Void of color. Void of life. The wind reminds me that winter is almost here. No color, just chill. Freezing fog waits around the bend, waiting to play a trick. Black ice. Not a friend. Where has the color gone? Wait. Yes, there it is.

That was welcome coolness. It’s so hot here today.
Thanks Gallivanta. Where is here?
Christchurch New Zealand
Never been to New Zealand. It’s your spring there now right? I would love to visit. I’ve seen wonderful images of your country.
End of spring yes. Summer about to begin. As a photographer you would love New Zealand.
There is always something going on, no matter what time of year 🙂
Cool colors and chopped off trunk..barely surviving a yellow bush is hung…no one around and no songs sung
Thanks kalabalu. 🙂 Are my pictures depressing? 🙂
Nice pics. Makes a refreshing change from the grey, wet winters in Europe.
It’s been pretty gray and wet here as well. 🙂
I read a book a long time ago where the author asked which color we would be (if we were a color obviously). The blue in your first picture is it for me! Stunning!!
Lovely! Especially loved picture #3.
Hi! I have nominated you for the Liebster award – read more here if you like: https://sunfieldart.wordpress.com/2012/12/16/award-nominations/
Thanks so much! 🙂
Gorgeous and brrrr. I love the golden best.
Me too. I need a bit of color in my life.
Claus, thank you. 🙂
So often, here in the midwest, days of winter are grey and cheerless and seem void of color. The sun hides, the whole day has a fuzzy cast. We have to look closely to find the color in our lives. You have found some beautiful spots. I do love those stumps!!!!
Thanks so much. I saw them sitting there and had to get the shot. 🙂 But you are correct about the winters here.
Pennsylvania’s Lebanon? Not all that far from me then. The scenery looks surprisingly similar.
Thanks for your visit. Still a few days away before winter begins. But as the saying goes, “…Baby it’s cold outside!”
There is a Lebanon in PA too? No this one is in Ohio, near Cincinnati.
I enjoy your shots…we have snow now and unless it is a fresh snow it looks very dirty and slushy, nothing pretty about it at all! Can you tell I’m not a fan of winter…
Yeah, it gets that way here too after a few days. I forget what they call it but they have a name for it. Dirty snow.
Love those stumps!!!

Funny. “Love those stumps” Almost sounds like a fetish. 😉 Thanks.
No snow here in Sicily, hardly ever. We have lots of rain these days though.
Yes, but you are in Sicily. I would love to visit there.
Nice work! As with Gallivanta from NZ it is cool to see ice and snow photos while we are in the middle of summer down south in Australia!
Yes it is your summer. 🙂 Thanks for the comment and visit. Hope to see you again.
Thanks, You just made me 🙂
Wavensongz. Thanks for the visit.
these pictures just make me feel cold. lol
That’s not good. 🙂
Beautiful colouring within the photos!
Thank you. I need some of your baked goods to warm me up! 🙂
Your photos never disappoint!
The lone leaf in the grass
Yes, it was a sad leaf. 🙂
i have never seen snow or frozen ground so i like them 🙂
awe the last picture is my favorite , its so cute!
Thanks so much. 😛
My patch of central Japan looked like this last Friday. Frost is a real rarity in my town. Alas, I didn’t snap a single shot. Next time!
Claire. Yes you should. Thanks.
