Welcome to Winter



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Although this picture was taken several years ago when we lived in Hendersonville, Tennessee, I think it is a wonderful winter scene with the icy trees and blue skies. I also like the sun peeking around the branches of the tree.

Looks like the snow is winning the battle against the sun, come to think of it I haven't seen the sun for weeks!!!

Have a Happy New Year

Fred Alton said...

A very accurate depiction of the whole winter scene, George! Cold, icy looking sticks of tree limbs, with the sun hiding behind them. No clouds - so the earth has no blanket to keep warm.

LV said...

The picture is lovely. All snow scenes with fresh powder snow are the best :)

Like how you caught that starburst.

Nice. That sunburst is a great part of the picture. Funny, how cold it can be under those blue skies.
