Greeting the morning

Greeting the morning_StaatsAfter an evening and night of snow this past week, the following morning promised a dawn of sunshine and a brilliant blue sky.  I headed out the door to begin my day at Como Park.  As I walked into the park I was joined by a cross-country skier who said that the snow was going to be perfect for his outing.  With different agendas we parted and went our own ways.  The sun rose over the white landscape and brought a beautiful contrast to the scene.  The night’s snow had clung to all the trees and they sparkled in the sunlight, especially with the bluest of skies all around.  It was a delightful way to start the cold morning — surrounded by the beauty of winter, the promise of bright sunshine, and some morning exercise of tramping in the snow and photographing.

      Would have been great if you were skiing this morning; you would have loved it Tammy!

      Yes, Joani – and it was more blissful because I had the chemical hand warmers in my mittens to keep my fingers warm when I wasn’t photographing. (oh, the little things are important when photographing in winter!)
