Through the Lens Week 41

'There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness and truth.' ~ Leo Tolstoy




Sharing with several blogs this week. ~ Our World Tuesday, Black and White Wednesday, Alphabe Thursday, Little Things Thursday, Haiku My Heart and Haiku Friday and with luck Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. (click on the blog name to go there.)



The cold of the morning sunrise on Cape Ann MA ~ In January it can feel like this weather will last forever ~ Yet sunshine always brightens the cold days.





A cove on Cape Ann MA with the brittle cold feel of New England.





I for Ice ~ Just to give you a sense of the cold on Cape Ann MA ~ New England is experiencing the cold more lately than snow. Snow I am sure will come soon enough.





Tis Winter on Cape Ann MA ~ This 'little bird' and other bird love the sumac and now they are also enjoying our newly added feeders for the birds for Winter.







Haiku on longer days slowly returning to brighten our Winter days.


We are wishing you love and peace in each day. xox

Your posted comments are a delight to us. Thanks.

  24. I simply cannot imagine being that cold!
    I think the coldest I've ever been in Australia was a -6°C
    Our ski fields do get cold - but their season is very short (compared to you guys and Europe).
    And right now we're sweltering in high humidity and 30°C days - so looking at your pics has been a lovely cool relief :-)

  25. They're all wonderful. I'm shivering a little!

  26. Beautiful icicle shot. I can take a lot of cold as long as there is sun (and no wind).

  27. Like the row of icicles, Carol. We haven't been cold enogh for that yet and also no freezing rain. Perhaps. How did Art like them?

  38. Even a little bit of sunshine helps! But I must say that your B&W Winter shots are beautiful. A surprise to me, because I like color and sun and as a rule really hate cold. However you make it look magical.
