winters light



Perhaps Mother Nature compensates for the cold weather by putting on a show each morning and evening. As the sun rises on the horizon, a sliver of the sky turns a creamy pink. Thousands of miles from the beach on Ambergris Caye in Belize, I'm reminded of the smooth pink interior of the conch shell lying at the edge of the bay.

Morning light bathes the snow in blue light, and I honestly can't say these sunrises are any less beautiful than the tropical variety.

Each sunrise is special and I see the pearly nacre of the conch. Nice.

I so look forward to your posts, especially when the streets have turned to salted slush, and I need a reminder of what snow is meant to look like.

I know snow gets old if you live where there is a lot of it, but here where we get rain, and more rain....it is lovely.

I was taken by your photo and ever more so by your comments. A plus for both.
