Winter Wonderland... pictures of a snowy landscape, snow scene photos

Updated on January 23, 2012

Poetry for the countryside location of my photos

I could say ... many things about you

each would be different

but all would be true.

You are always there

but I take you for granted.

Today you shocked me

with the splendour

of the gown your wore.

White velvet, ermine,

diamonds at my feet.

So still like a frozen image.

Not a balde of grass quivers.

Today you are aloof, stately

and I pay you my respects.

The beauty of a pure white snowy landscape in pictures and words.

Winter Wonderland.

Welcome to my page of snowy landscape photographs and descriptive poetry inspired by the pictures.

An artists dream world ...

an intensely coloured sky... above fields of snow and black silhouettes of trees.

Snow overnight - I awoke to a world blanketed in snow - I knew that I had to grab the camera and get the photos before the traffic got onto the roads. I almost had the place to myself. It was so cold that I found it difficult to take the pictures... but determination got me the pictures I wanted. My hands and feet finally thawed out at breakfast time.

the snowflake provides inspiration for designers

Each snowflake is unique and the intricate patterns of snowflakes fascinate and charm us with their delicate beauty.

Snowflakes and snow crystals are

Snowflakes and snow crystals are made of ice.

A snow crystal is a single crystal of ice.

      Thank you Joy - it is nice to be reminded of this beautiful morning walk when I took the photos. The world seemed transformed by the brightness of the snow that day. Sometimes I hit a creative 'glitch' and nothing comes along to inspire and then other times words just get sparked and flow; so my poems tend to arrive in batches or none at all. :) A bit like trains and the buses.

      Hi Mickey Dee - snow is nice to take photographs of but it seems to cause problems too for most forms of transport. Thank you for leaving a comment.

      Hi Donna, it is easy to like snow when it arrives once or twice a year and then goes in a couple of days. We are never prepared for this weather and somethings seems to grind to a halt. Thanks for reading and leaving a commment.

      I enjoyed this too 2uesday. So pleased to see that someone else appreciates the beauty of snow. Around here snow is a four letter word. Oddly enough though this is Canada we have no snow at the moment. Scheduled to come again this week. i hope so. Like the imagery in your poem - gown, ermine. A great site.
