First Snow

For the past two weeks it has been rainy and stormy, so to finally see not only a clear sky but some of the white stuff too, was just wonderful. For the past two decades I've not lived in a place with a lasting winter and snow so I wish I could do a little 'snow dance' to make it keep it coming!

This rugged landscape in its muted, neutral colour scheme is soothing. I was comparing the vibe to those parts of world where bright colours are more prevalent. These northern, wintery tones are indeed engrained in me. And the rocks speak their familiar language.

The terrain was slightly treacherous with pools of chilly water hiding under freshly fallen snow. The littlest member of our walking party discovered it with wet consequences. Sharp eyes needed, and steady steps to manage the ice. Still, isn't it gloriously beautiful!
