Waning Days

Just a reminder of the aftermath of the storm we had last Saturday.

A couple of days ago we had a very hard frost, providing for some good shots. It was interesting to notice the stars in the skies above the trees. ~ These then are we hope the last waning days of winter, temps today are now up to the plus 5/6 side, can't argue with that. Have a great weekend everyone. (clickable thumbnails)

A shot of the frost covered trees, notice the 'Big Dipper' over the trees

Somewhere under the snow, is my parking spot! No! That is not a 'Johnny on the Spot!' Just the outdoor storage.

Interesting tree frost shot.

Great photos Eric! Spectacular sky!! Spring must be getting close up there in the great north woods. :~)

Hi Leon, yes spring is in the air despite the lingering snow, another week should see the end of it.
Glad you like the pics. Have a good weekend my friend. :)

Janice Thomson said...

Beautiful photos Eric. Gosh you still have a lot of snow! I can imagine you will really enjoy spring after all those storms you folks got down your way. It will be nice to see the park in spring clothing :)

Shades said...

Oh wow...!!
Are there such beautiful places on earth?
You are so lucky Eric..!!
Thanks for sharing..!!

Eric Valentine said...

Thanks Janice & yes the snow is still hanging in there, but the temps are picking up now.

Spring is almost here though and with that will come trips to the park & pictures of course. :)

Eric Valentine said...

Hi Shades, yes there are indeed places like this in the world, I think the blogs are of great value as a showcase for such treats.. Glad you enjoyed.. :)

Oh my word. No snow here, just bare trees and some green beginning to show here and there.

Eric Valentine said...

This is still a little strange here. We still have the snow but temps are warming, so the slow thaw process has now begun.. Finally. :)

Beautiful winter photos, Eric! Here in Germany we have already temperatures in double figures, but with a grey, wet sky. I prefer your winter landscape.

Eric Valentine said...

Hi Swen, yes I know what you mean. I have experienced some of the European skies that you describe, much like England at times. I passed through Amsterdam a couple of times & parts of Germany years ago.

Glad you enjoyed the pics. :)
