The peacefulness of a winter’s morning

winter-stillness-and-reflection_15035-staatsThe snow began after dark and continued through the night.  It was a wet and heavy snow that blanketed the ground and outlined the branches and trees.  In the morning the landscape had been transformed to winter.  It was stillness and quiet this morning before Thanksgiving.  I was at the golf course at Como Park where the oak trees on the far side of the pond still had their burgundy leaves. The entire landscape before me was quietly reflected in the open water.  No ripple, no movement.  Only the peacefulness of a winter’s morning.

    I can put myself in the photo and feel something like what you experienced when you decided to take this. Now I would imagine most of the snow is gone with all this rain we’ve had last night and into this morning. A Lot of Rain…imagine if it had been snow we got instead….Hope you had a really nice Thanksgiving.

      That’s exactly what I’m hoping you can do Rex – put yourself in the photo. And with the rain we’ve had in the last 24 hours, I’m sure there isn’t any snow, and I’m sure that pond is probably overflowing. It’s all such a big reminder that we need to observe all the time because the scene is never exactly the same again. Happy Thanksgiving to you, and all the best for the upcoming holidays, Rex!
