It's Cold Outside

For many people, such as myself, once you have seen but so much snow, you have seen enough of it. However, I have to confess that although I feel that way when I have to get up on a cold winter's day to go to work without a car, and I would much rather be walking on dry ground, I still have a place in my heart for the bright, white stuff. (and the next two weeks are free from work for me)

Before going out this morning, I bundled myself up warmly and headed out the door to walk through the vineyards after a 12-14 inch snow that fell for about 36 hours ending late Christmas day. The temps are quite below freezing and no snow is melting today. Some of the same shots can be seen in my autumn shots. The seasonal contrasts are amazing.

So, in spite of all of you who are tired of looking at snow and who are still trying to come to terms with yet another 3 - 4 months of the stuff, here are some of my favorite pictures that I took this morning.

Be glad that you are in a warm room looking at them, because as many of you know, it's coooool outside!

(Frozen vineyards along the Neckar)

One of my favorite little one-room summer houses sitting in its little frozen orchard, surrounded by the vineyards.

Looking down the Neckar. The city of Stuttgart is just out of sight in the misty distance.

The apple orchard

A real “capture”.

A field of snow.

I found the effect of the snow on this hedge quite interesting.

      I "ONCE" took some snow photos that I enjoyed... LOL. OK, so mostly I hate the stuff, but under just the right conditions (which it appears you have) I would venture forth also. The conditions: snow that sticks to the trees and then the sun comes out... voila, the perfect snow... for about an hour! I remember these vineyards... quite pretty in snow as well.

      Today I went to the beach in Venice... :-))

      Wow this set really makes me want to take a walk in the snow! # 2 is so inviting, and I love the little house, so peaceful. The fence gives some added interest. I can feel the cool fresh air in this post excellent job.
