Christmas Snow

Sunday morning I stepped out my door and saw this.

I call this a Christmas snow since it is perfect. The snow is light and fluffy. It covers the ground in a blanket of white.

In the morning sunlight you can see the icy crystals shimmering. It is quite a sight.

Everything is so quiet. You can almost hear the rabbits. It is that still.

The shadow created by the fence shows the contours of the earlier drifting.

The fountain in the front of the house is covered with snow.

Looking closer you can see the snow crystals.

These dried flowers stand out against the snow.

Even the branches of the trees have a coating of snow.

Sometimes the very best sound is quiet.

Thanks for stopping by.

These pictures are gorgeous. I can almost hear the snow squeaking under my feet. I love bright, snowy days like this.

The picture of the shadow of the fence is amazing.

Ah snow!!! It is so beautiful and breathtaking---literally.
The quiet is also reassuring to me too.
You shots are excellent. The third one is extra special for sure. MB

I love the photo (3rd one) of the two trees and the field(s) covered with snow.

Tbanks for the beautiful images of Iowa in winter.

Stay warm and cheers from Sydney.

Beautiful photos, Russell. That fence and its shadow is a show-stopper for sure. Just wonderful.
