  4. I LOVE these sort of winter scenes. Just don’t want to be out in the frozen cold these days. Must be age creeping up on me! Our inch and a half of the white stuff that hung around for a few days was more than enough for me… at least for another decade or two! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this beauty!

    • I was thinking about your winter meadow ponds/lakes the other day…about what a winter treat that was. Does that still happen where you are now?

      It was quite cold up there where I made this photo, Gunta…it would likely have been uncomfortable…and it was much deeper than your “inch and a half of the white stuff.”

      You’re welcome. 🙂

      • We’re still midway between the two locations. Eric prefers to do all the renovation by himself and he’s a bit of a perfectionist, so it’s going slowly. Luckily we’re not in a huge hurry. As for our winter lakes. They have been alive and well and FULL this year. We just won’t get them down south because we’ll be closer to the beach and up a canyon. No flood plains anywhere close by … just the mighty Pacific which has been mighty wild these past several weeks. It’s all about topography apparently.

        • Yes, topography would have at least a little to do with it…. 😉

  7. It certainly is! Every surface… I hope you can find inspiration closer to home, too. I’m on my way tomorrow to Phoenix, will spend one night in the area (western side) then drive through Gila Bend down to Ajo and Organ Pipe. Looking forward to inky night skies down there, wonderful road scenes, maybe a new bird or two, fabulous plant life…interesting people? Maybe I can hope for that, too. Let me know if you have any recommendations (I know it’s last minute!). Would love to meet, too, but again, it’s last minute and I’ll only be in the Phoenix area a few hours – but who knows?

    • Thank you for the comment, Lynn…and yes, we talked about the inspiration, didn’t we? We’ll see how it goes…I’m sure there’s something out there. It was nice to see some of your photos after your trip south from here…and very nice to meet you, too, circumstances notwithstanding…..

      I hope things are going better now….
