While looking through my photos for the last snowfalls in recent years, I ran into this striking April sunset from a few years ago:
The little pond is just down the street from us. I quite like living in the woods! 🙂
The other day I was thinking of last December. I went through some photos to remind myself of everything that happened and ran into this gem. At the very end of last year, we were treated to gorgeous, glittering woods after snowfall:
It was really hard to get the light and shadow balanced well; this is one of my better shots, I think, in that respect. The light on the icy trees is so beautiful!
For the U.S.: Happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully the weather will be fine for the holiday.
Here is a half of a November halo from a year or two ago seen through a car window. Beautiful and fascinating, isn’t it?
I’m taking a few days completely off of social media and will resume posting next week.
As you most likely know, tomorrow is the election day for the 45th President of the United States.
This cycle has been not only ugly, it has been vicious. I have thoughts, but since I barely understand the electoral system here, I’ll not embarrass myself publicly. I will be glad that it’ll be over, and that’s a huge understatement!

Lauren Spark was asked by her mother to create an embroidery of Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. The results are stunning!
The direction and hues of the stitches are spot on, even on the black tree where they are difficult to see. Very impressive! I’m not surprised it took her almost 60 hours to finish. Visit her Tumblr for more pics of the process.
