Just beautiful Karen. A snow fairytale!
Thank you! We were so happy to get snow, Marina. But now it’s all ice covered so it’ll be a while before the skiing starts again. It was beautiful, anyway.
Does that mean more lovely pictures from you? 🙂
Thank you, Karen, for always giving me an infusion of beauty when I deeply crave it!
Oh, I’m so glad you feel that way, Scilla, thank you. It was a gorgeous ( and very cold!) day.
Oh my gosh, those happy birdies! And all those winter sparkles. You captured such a magical moment beautifully. I love your artistic eye for such things, Stunned yet again by your talent, love these images.
Thanks very much, Carrie. I’m so glad you enjoy these. You comment makes me feel like it was worth braving the cold! Well, I love being out there anyway.
Thanks for taking us into your beautiful woods to see the birds and sumac and frozen wonderland. Near the river?
Oh yes, right along the river. : ) Thanks for stopping by, Walter. Best wishes to you for the new year.
The images are breathtaking! Absolutely astonishing, can’t wait for more stuff like this 🙂 already followed!
Thanks very much!
All those lovely blues and browns.
I love those colors too. And today it is grey and snowy so I’m glad I had time to get out yesterday afternoon.
I love the little chickadees! And the sparkles!
The chickadees are so sweet! It was a glorious landscape and I don’t think I’ve done those sparkles justice but I loved being out in it. Thanks, Anne Rose!
This is awesome! : )
It’s like visions of sugarplums dancing …. Pretty awesome. You managed to make the frigid cold look warm!
It’s a beautiful collection of the photos, Karen.
I especially like the witty way to capture the birds.
Aw, this is beautiful!
❤ ❤ ❤
OMG! It’s wonderful!
beautiful images, beautiful light and athmosphere, great, thank you, Karen!!
oh, atmosphere… 😉
Glass poetry..and such a great light!
Lovely, the best of winter scenes – causing me to feel warm and fuzzy 😌
Breathtaking sparkles, Karen!
Another stunning array of photographs. The River’s Edge, Late Afternoon is just beautiful, and of course I love your signature birds.
What everyone says and that frozen pink. xx
ice can create some of the most beautiful and fascinating winter sights. and you’ve captured some of them. impressive!
beautiful. even though my feet are icy cold i feel like i should be walking in the country
What a gorgeous gallery of photos Karen. I love the little birds amongst the frozen branches, these pictures are pure magic and the grasses on the edge of the water throwing shadows in the golden lights, fabulous!
Gorgeous scenery, the lighting is just beautiful Karen.
Absolutely majestic and inspiring. Superb images, as always. The wee birds are always my favourite part of your photography. They are so lively and I can just hear their crackling little voices cutting through the icy air and warming the snowy indifference of winter. Beautiful shots. And I am very struck by that first image of the frozen river’s edge…Spectacular. Jubilant cheers to you,

When I was about 17, I experienced my first real ice storm. I was so excited, I determined to go out and photograph it the next day, which was sunny. I took my parent’s car and got horribly stuck on a remote, steep, one lane road, skidding and almost plummeting below. I could not turn around but had to back down. I don’t think I ever quite told them what happened – but I got my pictures that day! 🙂 These brought that back. They are lovely – the starling DOES look more distinguished in the winter, doesn’t he? Sweet chickadees!
oh my gosh all those pictures would look so beautiful on a christmas and/or general winter season greeting card!
What a ravishing series of photographs.
Wonderful work! I love them all!
Winter is my favourite season and these amazing photographs have just reminded me why. I would instantly want to go to the place where these photographs were taken. Love them! 🙂
Great photos, Karen. Tremendously fun, too, to see another person in the city shoot the same event but from different angles and locations. I was amazed at how much beauty there was out there after the storm and how it continued to transform from day to day. Thank you.
A magical selection full of beauty.
Beautiful shoots, thank you, continue !
Yes, winter is great for photos.
Wow, you have captured a true winter wonderland with this series…beautiful work Karen, all so artistic.
Photography and nature can be poetry ! Thanks for reminding me of it 🙂
Love this. The starling and coaltit stills are particularly wonderful to me. Thank you ^.^
the white flowers in winter! I love your album
