Beautiful Sky, Beautiful Snow

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

A snowstorm usually means gray, overcast skies.  But the day after a snowstorm can be sunny and bright.  We got five inches of snow last Wednesday (February 12), but the next morning featured a bright blue sky and sunshine.  That made the snow clinging to the trees and on the ground look even more beautiful.

This photo was taken from our front yard on February 13, 2014.

Uma bela e contrastante foto, em que o rendilhado alvo da árvore se projecta num magnífico céu azulinho.
Gostei de ver, George!

A pretty and awesome sight, but keep it up there. We are having wonderful sunny days, but the wind is terrible. Guess March decided to come in early.

Wow! The bright white snow and ice really do make that sky dark blue.

That is very beautiful. I've always thought snow was pretty but I do get tired of dealing with it.

You have a remarkable skill, George! I appreciate the way you have taken a sharp picture of the snow, and while that is your main subject, the highlights have not been blown out, and neither have any details been lost in the shadows. That's talent. And besides that... it's a pretty scene. :-)

Ela said...

This is a wonderful view. What a beautiful combination of colors.
Greetings :)
