Stark Contrast

I woke up this morning to a beautiful snowfall. It wasn't deep but the ground was completely white. I love watching the snowfall. I just think that the way the snowflakes fall is so graceful. Since it was actually snowing I decided to bundle up and go for a walk. That's another favorite thing of mine - walking in the snow. We have an arroyo a little ways behind the house. I haven't been out there in quite a few years. I had a wonderful two hour walk and ended up taking over 100 pictures. It was so peaceful, surrounded completely by white. I picked one photo for my picture for today but I had so many others that I decided to do a Snow Day slide show.

Ooohh, lovely photo. Also love both of your cloud pics (today's and a few days ago). Wasn't the snow fun? I had to go for a quick walk in it too-

There is something so striking about snow blanketing bare branches, as if the branches don't look as bare and are more softened, and somehow more gentle looking.
