Through the Lens Week



Through the lens I feel the magic of nature and its power also.

  2. It is amazing how different snow can look in different places even though it is still just snow. This is a lovely collection of pictures and thoughts, Carol ... I especially like the beautiful sky ... and your Haiku always rings true. Thank you ...

  4. What a wonderful set of photos--- shows that the best photos are rarely taken in sunshine

  5. Beautiful winter scenes. The birds somehow manage all the cold. I think we are all waiting eagerly for spring!

  6. It seems like the snow is never ending! Pretty images and I always enjoy the birds. Cute shots of the Mourning Doves and Robins. The last sky shot is lovely! Have a happy week!

  7. Beautiful photos. I especially like the first one with the grey sky over the sea and the snow in the foreground.

  8. I hear you. About the snow, snow and more snow. We are expecting another 1-4 inches tonight.
    I am so looking forward to seeing the yard again without snow. But it is nice to see the birds at the feeder. Which I just might have to go and refill!

    Best to you ~Jules

  9. Wonderful photos! The light on the first is so beautiful and also the "SkyWatch"- sky!

    ReplyDelete
  10. You've captured some of the more beautiful aspects of all this snow! And the winter, tough as it has been, seems like a rather long journey this year!

    ReplyDelete
  11. You make it tolerable, my friend. Your photos are wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What a lot of snow! I'll probably never cease to be amazed at such wonder.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wonderful snow photos! You know me, I love snow. Thanks for the visit!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love "... gentle magical times..."

    I guess that you have had a little snow lately. You certainly made the most of it.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Beautiful scenes, but my goodness, how much longer until spring!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This must be such a hard winter for the birds there Carol! I hope warmer days will arrive soon. We, meanwhile, are having a mild winter in the Colorado foothills. It was 60 degrees today! I'm sure we will get more cold and snow but I am enjoying the nice days while they are here.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Beautiful snowy photos of Cape Ann. I love the one of the morning doves.

    ReplyDelete
  18. We envy you for having so much snow, while we haven't got even one little, tiny snowflake! ;)
    Have a great week! I like your little assistant!

  19. That is a lot of snow! Both of my kids want to see falling snow after watching it on TV at the Olympics today.

  20. Brrrrr....cold! But still very beautiful from my office chair.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You've got some beautiful pictures of your snowy mantle, but I hope some of our Spring-like weather works its way up to you.

    ReplyDelete
  22. such pretty images of all this snow. We do not have as much as most over here in Nahant. Some years are like that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. love the image of the sumac! as in Cape Ann, we too have had snow, snow, snow! yesterday other types of weather broke through with rain, then ice, then snow again.

    ReplyDelete
  24. aah yes, we 're having the same winter as you are... the snow does make for beautiful photos though and your haikus are wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Of course snow pictures look beautiful, but still I don't like snow and rain, lol !

    ReplyDelete
  26. Waltzing with life!! Wonderful idea!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You must be longing for spring. By the look of all the snow, spring will be very muddy and wet.....

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love those morning Doves enjoying the sunshine.
    Yes Through the lens one can feel the magic of nature.

  29. Hi,Carol. Nice captures. Snowfalls are very troblesome for mamy people. But they would make our world very beautiful. I like your photos very much. Your Haiku are very fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awesome post Carol ... your haiku seems to grow.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Through the lens, we are able to see things that happen at the same time, but in different places.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Love your pink sky photo!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like the shadows in the first shot and the light coming through the clouds and hitting the water in the third shot is wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think I'm tired of snow! I've had all the photo-ops I wanted or needed! I enjoyed your haiku, tho!!!

  35. As I said on previous blog we have had no snow this year YET .
    Lovely photos

    ReplyDelete
  36. I can feel little shivers of spring! I just know it's almost here, so take heart!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I enjoyed the photos, Carol, and especially the mourning doves. They seem like such a sweet bird (I don't know how one can tell if a bird is sweet, but that's always been my impression). We have them here too, and I love hearing their call in the morning and evening. Thank you so much for stopping in at Cranberry Morning today.

  38. I love looking at your beautiful snow, but I guess it's getting old by now for you. I did notice the tree in my backyard getting leaves and we're probably 6-8 weeks ahead of you when it comes to spring, so hang in there. Spring is on it's way.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Our Alphabe-Thursday choices are errily similar. :-) "soul yearning for peace" So beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautiful snow shots -- though you're probably very tired of that white stuff!
    We have mourning doves galore, constantly pecking at the yard in all kinds of weather! But they seem to coo more in the warm months, and are silent in the winter!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Such lovely photographs and poetry. I haven't tried Haiku since school days. Maybe it's time. Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage

  68. paradox such an odd little word. From the Word history and origin section:
    1540, from L. paradoxum "paradox, statement seemingly absurd yet really true," from Gk. paradoxon, from neut. of adj. paradoxos "contrary to expectation, incredible," from para- "contrary to" + doxa "opinion."

    Cheers ~Jules
