winter in the country

Yesterday morning, I slipped on my Mucks, threw a coat on over my night gown, and ran out into a world gone white. I wanted to capture dawn in my back yard... for you.
The sun illuminated the fresh fallen snow with all of the magic you might imagine.

Only an hour later, I would be driving into town... past fairy forests and

sleeping corn fields...

When you live in the country you pick and choose the roads you travel on very carefully in the winter. At days end, I realized that this maybe my last evening turning down a our short cut until spring, so I snapped this familiar little woodland creek , too.

This utter beauty makes it easy for me to embrace the thoughts of the long, cold months ahead. Pin It

  5. A lovely blanket of snow. It looks like the land has just pulled it up under its chin and is having a bit of a slumber. The last shot is really magical.

    Oh, and I am coveting those boots. I soo need those.

  19. You are so right about picking and choosing the roads in winter in the country - we do the same thing. The hard part for us is each way out (there are three routes to take) are all treacherous! But we are lucky enough to have a county that deices for us. The unfortunate part is our own private road. :) Beautiful drive and photos!

  28. The arrival of winter is the symbol of falling of beautiful snow which covered the surroundings with a layer of whitening and milky white snow.It looks so beautiful and lovely.
