He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter…. In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity.
~John Burroughs, “The Snow-Walkers,” 1866
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.
~John Burroughs, “Winter Sunshine”

Fantastic set, Cynthia. Great use of light, texture…beautiful trees and wonderful old stuff.
These pictures are a feast for the eyes. Fodder for a million stories. Wonderful!
Wow, all of these are beautiful! I especially love the frost on the tree branches. Gorgeous!
Thank you! 🙂
Oh my goodness, your photographs are fabulous! Something for me to aspire to someday…thank you for sharing them, they are truly lovely.
Thank you Elisa!
all pictures are so beautiful!
Wow, Cynthia you are one of my favorite photographers on the whole of the Interwebz!
4803 & 4804 are ways to my heart. Can I purchase a print of 4804? 🙂
🙂 You make me smile… 4804 looks comfy doesn’t it! I can put the image up on our Zenfolio site for printing or would you like a digital file?
Printing would be preferred. You get something from that, correct? If not I’ll send you something separately if need be! 🙂
These are all fantastic! I especially love the old truck. Can’t stop looking at that photo.
Thank you… The truck is one of my favorites as well!
This is so awesome, Cynthia. I have been wondering where you were. Maybe you post and I am unaware. Missed you! Your photographs are truly an inspiration.
Thank you Drew! The activity on WordPress lightened a little after taking on some paid photography jobs- Glad to be back! Hope all is well!
You had gotten me so excited with your wonderful photography. I have been out a couple of times and today was the latest. Although it is still very cold, with a fair amount of snow on the ground, I did some driving. I have found such a collection of abandoned buildings all around my locality, and it is so amazing when you look for something and it is right under your nose in reality. I will be posting some photo’s but at present writing a poem a day for the month of April. I have a few photo’s up. I will search the names and write back so you can have a look. Hugs and glad you’re back too!
Thanks drew! I enjoy your poems and look forward to seeing the images you captured. It is amazing what our eyes pass by without a second look!!
Time Out and Forgotten Days are the two that I can find. Let me know what you think and if there is something you think you would change. I’m just a beginner so any advice would be great. Thanks so much for remembering me. Makes me feel good.
I will take a peak at these on the “big girl” computer when I get home! I am excited to see them!
