Enjoying the seasons


“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.” Charles Dickens

A bit like Sky Watch Friday, all different but special in their own way, link to see the hundreds of other posts from around the globe.

Photo from Scarborough Bluffs Canada on a very chilly winter’s day with lots of low cloud, mist, fog and frosty breezes.









A sampling of ATCs, Moos and cards classes we are teaching over the next few weeks.

Gosh, that's pretty! Makes me a bit "shivery" to look at what I know is a cold landscape, but beautiful! Nice Sky Watch!

Quiet Paths said...

Oh wow, this is the scene we had on labor day over on the east side of the mountains. I'm strange; I don't mind the snow too much.

wonderful image. Makes me want to go for a walk. Cold brisk air stinging red cheeks, crunch of frozen ground under foot.
Cheers

Well, how nice to find your great blog right over there in Australia. Great photos and I must also try a Skywatch Friday. Not sure if my little camera is up to it but am going to have a try. It is spring here as it is in your nick of the woods and the sky is a bit hazy with dust thrown up by late autumn/early spring winds. Have a good weekend. Eleanor over at Thatchwick.

Pearl: Nice capture of the winter Sky reminder.

Titania said...

It looks so different from our subtropical area and rivers. It looks very austere but still very beautiful;it really emits the cold of the season which you have captured with your picture.

Dewdrop said...

I turned into a Dewdropcicle just looking at this picture. Brr... you certainly captured the essense of the shot!

You have captured winter perfectly - cold, bleak and beautiful. Well done!

Lily Hydrangea said...

This is why I love winter! Beautiful job Pearl.

Paul said...

excellent picture!

SandyCarlson said...

So refreshing for me as I await three hurricanes here in CT!

Joy said...

The photo reminds me of a dreary day in February in the mountains near where I live. The hint of spring & warmer weather but still the dead of winter.
Thanks for the note on my blog. If you're missing pumpkins, you could always paint a rock to look like a pumpkin. ;~)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Catherine said...

A Gorgeous Wintery capture for skywatch! Each season makes it's own beauty! I love your title for it ~frosty breezes! You can almost feel the chilly air looking at your beautiful capture!
Enjoy your weekend!
Happy sky~watching!

hanks for stopping by my blog and I know seeing the old bathroom was quite the treat for everyone. Imagine facing it in the AM every day fro 17 years, lol. The new one makes me smile every day. Did you see my pictures of Plymouth? Those would make you think back. How did you ever decide to go to Australia from Mass?

PS. I am not entirely sure how the BD thing works; it is my first foray into forums, but I am willing to learn.
