Mollie enjoying our morning walk

Mollie enjoys the snow. She is fearless, she runs and jumps through the deep snow banks. It is hard to capture her joy with my camera.

Winter Solstice

The morning of December 21st began with lovely winter scenery. Yesterday's flurries has frosted everything with new white snow. A crescent moon is hiding amongst wisp of morning clouds hanging above the mountains.

Mollie and I return home to grab a camera to capture these lovely images. Mollie is getting much better at being patient as I take pictures.

She enjoys exploring the winter landscape. She searches for branches buried under the snow.

Winter has arrived

With the falling of several inches of snow, we are reminded that it is winter.

Downy Woodpecker

A downy woodpecker visits our sunflower feeder.

Christmas branch

This year we are decorating a Christmas branch.

More Shadows

Yesterday evening,  the moonlight and leaf bare trees created a tangle of shadows along the path which Mollie and I traversed.

Sunset at Art Center

With early winter sunset,  the art center fills with light.  Shadows are created, as are rainbows.  And then there is the view of the sunset through the leaded and stained glass windows.
