The beauty of it

It's no secret that I'm not a big fan of winter. I grew up in the south of France in an area where snow is something that happens every 5 or 6 years. The cold is not my friend. I need sunshine and warmth. But still I can appreciate the beauty of it all. 

Last night, this is the view that greeted me as I switched of the lights of the living room. My neighbor's back porch light was on and turned the trees of the back yard into a fairy tale landscape, a stunning, incredibly gracious tangle of branches in their white fluffy coat. A magical moment to remember. 

 So I grabbed my coat, my camera and my tripod and ventured on the back deck for a few pictures


  1. Very pretty. Winter can definitely be a challenge (I live in Canada and it's been -30C for most of the past week), but also so beautiful.

  2. What a beautiful description "stunning, incredibly gracious tangle of branches in their white fluffy coat."
