I was planning to spend today very differently, but it just kept snowing and snowing. By mid-afternoon, about 10 inches had completely transformed the landscape. Surrendering to the new shape of my day, I took my camera for a walk to capture the “story of snow” and how it defines lines and spaces, foregrounds and backgrounds.
This is what I found….think of how differently any of these scenes might have looked without the snow as a defining contributor and co-creator.
A patio table not quite ready for company:
The railing pickets shaped the snow on the edge of the deck:
Fence posts with white hats:
Here, the hat begins to slip a little:
Grasses catching handfuls of snow:
Smooth white defining an oval of wilderness:
The white background helps these Japanese Maple twigs flaunt their beautiful color:
The blue garden creature meditates under a snowy blanket:
And that is my snow story!
