Yes it is…and I think this year may be trying the patience of quite a few. Love the photo.
beautiful words and image, thank you, sharp and bright and clear here in Donegal too, with snow on the uplands
I hope you have many more sharp, bright, clear days this winter! We’ve had quite a bit of ice and now rain, so winter will have to start over I guess.
Beautiful, thank you
Yes! That’s right
Yes it certainly is. And today is a thunderstorm! So at least there is the occasional awe at the wonder of weather! And of your lovely photographs! Thank you
That it is!
what a lovely thought! I won’t forget it anytime soon
Lovely photo, makes me miss living in the Midwest!

Winter is also a time of joy for skiers and snowboarders. Some folks I know, love winter more than any other season.
Great photo, writing, everything!
I just love your beautiful photos and wonderful poetry. It offers that little moment of reflection and peace in an otherwise often too hectic day! Thank You!
OH thank you so much, that is much of my aim to create a little space for respite and replenishment.
Yes, it is…and oh boy is it testing my this year!
This is so true. You have captured a simple truth is just a few simple words. Brilliant. I like this;). I cannot find the like button.
Hi, I apologize for the mystery of the like button. Here’s the thing. I like to keep the look of the blog simple and clean and I can’t post a like button without having to show gravatar images. So they only way to get to the like button is to click on comments and you’ll find one there – near the bottom of whatever is on that page I believe. Thanks for your comments and taking the time to ask. As you’ll notice from how long it took me to answer this – replying to comments is not my strong suit – but comments keep me going in many ways. So much thanks.
You are welcome. I always enjoy your work and look forward to your posts.
This is indeed true, and so far this winter I never realized how much!
You said it! [chuckle] I love the composition and how the shoreline draws the eye inward and then wonders what is around the bend.
Oh so true and it’s only just begun!
I love winter, but it can be a bit treacherous. Recently fell, tromping about, searching out subjects. I’m fine but my camera didn’t quite recover. Oh well. So, be careful out there. And thanks for all the beauty you share on your blog.
Hi. I like the layers of ice along the shore in your photo. Winter certainly does take patience. Jane
Reblogged this on like an apple.
I really like your tiny little poems and the photos you put with them. If winter is a test of patience then I fail!
really lovely, many of them. Thank you for sharing
