Mother Nature welcomed in 2014 with a slap. Snow, more snow and now we will be living in a freezer until further notice. This morning, as I was debating whether to make the trek to work, I took a few pictures. What do you think I decided?
Note: These were taken early morning. The blue in “Just beyond” is the actual color of the morning, no filter was added. In the others, I chose to take most of the “blue” out.
Well, it is so pretty from a distance! Good luck staying warm. The one winter I lived through a blizzard, I learned how distance is a great filter on whether weather is good, bad, pretty, overwhelming. Hang in there.
Thanks Patti. Agreed.
Very Nice! NYC will look like that in about 5 hours from now!
Probably a bit more in NYC than we got.
Unfortunately 😦 lol
I really like ‘Hiding Place’. Very calm, very picturesque. Well done.
Beautiful! I hope you took the day off and took lots of pictures.
Ellen, I did take the day off but I slept most of the day. Still not 100% but getting there. Thanks.
So lovely. Thanks!
So very calm and beautiful!
Wow! Absolutely stunning pictures! And no footprints?
Thanks. None, well maybe some deer… hard to see. 🙂
Todd has loads of it.
It’s even chilly down there I bet.
Seth, we are expecting an over night low of 27…but we will warm up into the 50’s by mid day. Stay warm!
Stay home! Takes photos! So I can enjoy the beautiful snow from FL!! Great job! Thanks!!
I did this morning but not just because of the snow but because I am trying to get over this cold as well. I am off to work in the morning though. Blowing snow will make for a fun Friday drive. But hey, it’s Friday. 🙂
Winter weather is hazardous to your health!!! We checked the weather back home in Sussex County, NJ…high of 12 degrees & snowing!
Lovely to be here in FL…though it was a bit windy & chilly for us this am!!
Be safe on the snowy roads…feel better…Happy Friday!!
Wow, I am guessing you stayed home! Seth, your calendar arrived on the last day of Dec 2013. Perfect timing. I am thrilled. You can read about how happy I was here http://silkannthreades.wordpress.com/2014/01/01/3729/
Thanks Gallivanta. I am giddy to know that some of my work has a new home down in New Zealand. At least y’all are warm over there. 🙂 Happy New Year. Thanks for sharing.
Your work is very welcome in my home 🙂 Happy New Year.
The snow looks good….but as soon as it arrives over here in the U.K. (and we have had none sop far this winter) we will of course start complaining. At least it would be a change from the gales and heavy rains of late. So enjoy whilst you can. Best wishes
It looks like we are sending some over to you. 🙂
Gee…thanks! Well it will be fun for a bit and a change of subject for me and my camera.
These are such peaceful beautiful photos. Wish I were there. Your calendar arrived today!! Thanks so much, it’s even better in the flesh. 🙂
Glad it arrived Jennifer and glad you like it. 🙂
These are wonderful! I particularly like the first two… thanks for sharing! We’re sweltering through very hot weather in Australia so these look even more cool and crisp!
Maybe we can swap a bit of air. I’ll send some cool air and you send a bit of warmth.
It’s a deal! 🙂
Ah, I see you guys got pounded with snow too! That’s us over here right now. (NJ) We’re still getting it until about 10AM.
Absolutely gorgeous shots, Seth.
The early morning made everything glow.
Yes but y’all always get more than we do. We start it off and y’all finish it with a bang. 🙂
I think up north got it even worse than us this year. It’s true, though. I’ll never forget 1996 we were buried under like 3ft.
Still dark outside, but my neighborhood is a blanket of white like yours—beautiful pix.
I absolutely love the pictures, hope you stayed at home and did something better than working 😉
I don’t blame you. I would have made the same decision!
Just Beyond is my favorite.
I looked out my window this morning and was glad to be able to work from home today. The snow is beautiful, but I’d rather view it through a window than go out in it.
Exactly. Having that option is a blessing sometimes.
gorgeous and terrific photos, Seth. Have a happy and Healthy creative 2014!
Thanks Francina and you as well.
Thanks so much.
Reblogged this on apithanosg.
Exquisite photos. May I use the trees to draw a zentangle? The shapes made by the branches and twigs covered in snow just fascinate me x
Thanks and yes, please do.
Thanks Seth, you are really so talented with an artist’s eye!
Quite pretty for snow. Especially like the one with the red barn.
You didn’t go into work because of the very snowy roads, citing you were still shoveling your driveway and that the end of your street had a pretty tall drift making it very difficult to get out. Of course, your boss does not know this blog exists because he/she is too busy playing “Candy Crush” all day long. 🙂
Funny David. Ive seen lots of game pay notices about Candy Crush. Never played it. Should I join in the party? 😉
Candy Crush reminds me of the old Centipede game by Atari. I’ve never played online games because they cost money. Call me cheap in that regard. 😉
Very lovely photos…I suspect you didn’t go to work!!
Good guess. 🙂
Can you send some of this beauty over to me …. Miss it so much.
Sure and the cold temps too. 🙂
Yes, bring the whole package .. had enough of wet and grey days. *smile
Very nice pictures. Stay warm!!
Wow, these are wonderful! These have a peaceful, quiet feel to them. I love the early morning and the way the light hits. You did a terrific job capturing that light. A great start to 2014!
Sending you wishes for a great New Year!
Raw edges of beauty is stunning! Love them all.
Thank you. 🙂
Beautiful pics. Have to say, I’m enjoying your calendar every time I check the date for my To Do’s.
Yes, glad to hear! 🙂
I love the top one, with the red barn. Lovely!
I love the blue that snowy light produces. Sadly this winter we haven’t seen much cold or snow yet…
Yeah I’ve heard it’s been warmer than usual but I thought Finland always had snow. 😊
The further north you go 🙂 In the south at least, it’s the longest autumn ….
Ah. I need to visit. I hear it’s beautiful.
Oh it is, any time of the year!
hello! What a beautiful serie of pictures you took ~ I can’t wait to see more 😉 thanks for visiting my blog, glad to see you liked you post!
You are welcome. Thanks for the return visit.
Awesome views. I love the snow. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking.
These are beautiful images! Thanks for finding my blog and stopping by there as well. After I read your “about” page, I felt we had a lot in common. Very nice blog!
Thanks. Glad to connect with you.
Wow…I envy you for being surrounded by such beauty. Stunning photos!!
Hello Seth Snap! Many thanks for your Like, much appreciated. Amazing site and great picture of the full moon. It looks most eerie whilst keeping its secrets hidden. Or not. But that, as they say, is another story. Thanks again. Best to you, and don’t forget your thermals! R
Beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
