Here Comes The Sun
Remember that rime frost that I posted back in November? Well, these pictures were taken the very next day. One day the cold fog blew in and froze the world into a beautiful sparkling white wonderland, and the next, the sun came out from behind the clouds and melted it all away.
Rarely have I seen as beautiful sight as a bright sky blue backdrop behind frosty white trees glittering in the sunlight. I was glad when I noticed that the sun was peeking out that day, because by the end of the day, the frost had completely melted off, and we were left with bare branches again. But we didn’t have the bare branches for long, as the area I live in is very foggy, so we are always guaranteed some good winter frosts. In fact, the frost blew in a couple of days ago and the world is encased in sparkling diamonds again. I don’t think the frost will melt off for quite a while either, as we are currently in very cold temperatures (-30 degrees Celsius right now!) so unless there is a strong wind, it’s going to last for a while. In weather like this, I’m happy to look out my window and enjoy the view, without feeling the need to brave the cold in order to get some photographs! Photos would be nice but. . . 😉

Wow. Breathtaking photos. You live in a truly beautiful place. x

I think so too 😉 Judging by the outdoor photos you post though, I’d say the same about where you live!

I’m so jealous, we never get snow or frost like that here in London where I love. So pretty! Makes everything look totally different and new.

I agree- I love how snow freshens everything up! Even though you don’t get snow like this, I’m sure there are plenty of other things to love about London that we don’t have here. Such as short winters 😉 haha.

I well remember the previous photos – and these are equally beautiful. Karen x

Thank-you so much Karen. I enjoyed taking the photos, so I am glad you enjoyed seeing them 🙂

I keep meaning to get out and capture photos of the frosty snow dusted trees, but I continue to back out when I remember how cold I’ll get out there! These photos are super pretty, and I love that fluffy little bird! So cute!

It is such a struggle I agree! There are plenty of days where I don’t go out to take photos, as I just don’t want to freeze! That little bird is one of the ones my sister has “trained” to hand feed, so whenever you go outside they follow expecting you to feed them seeds! 🙂

How lovely this all looks! Not that I’d want to be outside in your current temperatures, but I think it’s wonderful how you’ve captured the beauty of the different seasons in your corner of the world.

Thanks Jessica! It’s funny you should mention the current temperatures, because after being in a deep freeze last week, we have now warmed up to above zero this week! If you don’t like the weather in Alberta, stick around a few minutes and it will change 😉

Great pics. I am now using the chickadee pic as my phone’s home screen wallpaper. 😉

Thanks Annabelle! I’m so happy to hear that you have put that picture as your wallpaper, and I am sure the chickadee would be honoured too, if he knew 😉

So beautiful. You live in a lovely looking place.

Thanks Kate-Em! I agree with you there- this is definitely the most picturesque place I’ve ever lived.
