Frosty Trees at Farmington Bay

Frosty Trees at Farmington BayFrosty Trees at Farmington Bay

When I woke up this morning I was hoping to find the ground covered in snow instead I can see in the street lights that rain is falling. As much as I like rain it is winter and I’d prefer snow. I’d prefer frost and ice.

I remembered this image I took a few years ago of frosty trees at Farmington Bay and how it quietly says “winter”. It is a simple image of trees, a marsh, frost and wintry skies yet it still speaks volumes to me of the life in the frozen marsh and how the frost-covered branches offer shelter for even the smallest of winter birds.

Life is good.


(Less than an hour after I published this the snow started falling here again)

    This isn’t one of the awful inversion layers, is it? I do not recall them fondly at all!

    That is SUCH a beautiful scene.
    Even here, where snow is a rarity, I love the pared back elegance of winter. Your snow is just the icing on the cake. And spectacular icing it is.

    I also clicked on another site…Like to click on older ones and the “related” ones…thought I’d better explain or some folks might be confused….

    Winter offers us all a respite and snow a good excuse to stay indoors or tucked inside the notch of a tree. It’s snowing in Draper, Mia and again it’s a winter wonderland. Thank you for sharing your photos and talents with us all.

    Beautiful image! I love the sight of frosty trees and frosty grass. I especially like the little brown birds and the wonderful shot of the Great Blue….he looks so stoic….
