Winter arrives on silvery-toed slippers of snow

A couple of snow pictures for you. Just two today ~ I took them early this morning while the light was still sweet.

Today I accomplished everything on my list. Maybe if I made bigger lists I would get more done but I’m not really sure I want a bigger list.

Pioneer Woman is having another of her photo assignments and this time it’s food photography. Looking in my files, I see that there many more photos like the ones in this post than there are of food.

But I entered one anyway.

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.

My George. He waits patiently for me while I’m on the ground (on a tarp, of course) taking macro photos.

Today was the first substantial snowfall of this winter and I’m glad for it.

Thanks for coming by and visiting with me today ~ it’s always a pleasure to see you here.

the sky and silver ..pure magic!!

I entered a food photo too even though my food pics are pretty bad. Oh well... it was something to do.

Love the light you are having up your way this week. Nothing but gray skies here and it seems like forever since we've seen the sun or any good amount of snow on the ground. It's reaaaalllly boring looking out there.

I don't really have any food photos either. It meant I had to get creative, both with my camera AND in the kitchen. Double whammy.

These are so pretty. I love the dog too.

The ice crystals are so delicate..just lovely photos. George is enjoying the snow? I know our dogs just love to play in it.

Great macros! Love the lighting and detail. George is always a welcome sight!

Thanks for the tip on PW's latest photo contest, I submitted one taken last week. Good luck.

I love the colors in that first photo! I hardly ever take pictures of food, I guess I'm too busy eating it?! And small victories are the best, so keep your to do list short!

It's amazing the 'feelings' you capture in your photos....beautiful.

Devon said...

I love your photography! Your George is so sweet. Good luck in the new Pioneer Woman Contest. I thought about entering a picture of my son holding a giant zucchini... I don't have too many food pictures!

Linda said...

I love your pictures. And the poetry. I don't have enough wall space to frame all my favorites. ::sigh::

texwisgirl said...

Oh that sweet George. Melts my heart.

Caroline said...

That light blue and white...sigh...just gorgeous Kate!!!

Hilary said...

Beautiful photos, Kate. They're just stunning, as are the sunrise images from the previous post. I had to laugh when I read this post title. I just scheduled a post for the morning where I've used that same quote. Great minds and all that.

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

There is a lot to be said about keeping a list manageable and accomplishing those things on it.

Oliag said...

Beautiful blue sky and silver macro shots! The are the colors of winter:)

Good luck on the PW contest!...and don't make your list too long!

These photos are great. I am very partial to pictures of beautiful dogs like George though. Good luck!!

Stacey Dawn said...

George is so sweet.
I've been meaning to ask you, how did you like lulu.com for your calendars? I considered using them but didn't - yet! Also, where do you get your standouts printed? I owe my brother a canvas print but I think they'd like a stand out better. Thank you!

So much soft blue and white in these photos, I just love them. George is probably loving the snow just as much as Lily!

A New England Life said...

* lotta love going on there ; )

Karen said...

Love those first photos - and I remember of yours that had.. I believe.. wine and maybe crackers, looking from above with an applied texture, it was a great food shot!

Gail said...

Beautiful is such an understatement!

mrs mediocrity said...

Gorgeous. You are so good, I don't know if I would get down on a tarp in this weather. I'm impressed. :)

Daryl said...

Lists are a good thing. I also like them short like snow falls ..

The Japanese Redneck said...

Good luck on the contest.

Great pictures.

Awesome photos, I dont photograph food, find it quite the boring subject to be honest ! But great to thoes who do ! Most of my photos are on my photography blog! Have a wonderful day !

JC said...

Again, such a nice photo of George. He poses so well. It will take me 15 or so shots to get a good one of my girls but when I do ... it's a keeper.

Enjoy your snow !!!
