Solemnity of Winter

After visiting so many blogs publishing beautiful pictures, I decided to try my hand at it also. I do not pretend to be anything more than a neophyte at this art form (the beauty of digital photography is that I can screw up a thousand times and still have a chance of success!) but still will venture to post some of my pictures.

I was up North visiting family a few week ago and went from spring to winter in a 4 hour drive! One can say a lot of bad things about winter but cannot deny its beauty. This is a picture of spruces on my mother's lot. I have seen these trees a thousand times but, on that day, there was something solemn about the scene.


  1. Isn't it amazing how this can happen in the spring. Thank you for sharing your photo with us. The trees are beautiful!

  2. Thank you for the comments. My home town if quite a ways up North so winters are longer there. A running joke up there is to say: "Summer was nice, it's a pitty I had to work that day!".
