In the Bleak Midwinter!

 Hello everyone,
      I have a few more photos I would like to share with you that I took a couple of days ago when it was snowing those big fluffy snow flakes. The photo above is my neighbor's house-it looks so pretty in the snow.
This is also very close to our home-we often walk by here.
 This is Carragher's pond that I took some photos of in the fall so I wanted to get some winter shots too.
We got several inches of snow in the last couple of days.
The same pond from a different angle.
Taken from the opposite side of the road where a brook flows through.
I liked the added interest of the old fence posts.





 Well as you can see from the above photo we travelled through hills and vales to enjoy the beauty of this bleak but beautiful midwinter day!

I hope you enjoyed coming along for the ride.

Take care,

Carolyn

This was lovely!!! It's really foggy and cold here in Southern Oregon, but still no snow where I"m living :( I'm holding out hope. These winter scenes were lovely and I can see why you took the time to enjoy everything. Thanks for posting pics ;) :) :) Have a lovely week. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Oh Carolyn,
Thanks so much for taking us along on a ride through your neighborhood and area. Your neighbor's house is so pretty, all of them are actually. I love the style of them. Your little cottage looks so sweet in the snow, too. (Yesterday's post) Your house is very picturesque, even in the Winter time.
Thanks for the lovely photos!
Hugs, Cindy

Just lovely!

Msrobin said...

Now I'm not a winter person, but you make it look beautiful! Your winter is hardly bleak, I call it bleak when the snow is gone and all is cold and brown and dull. Like here!

Georgianna said...

Bleak, yes, but also gorgeous. Very magical photos, Carolyn! Thank you so much for braving the cold to take them and share them.

I hope your first week of 2011 has gotten off to a fine start.

Angela said...

So beautiful and so peaceful. I agree - - the fence posts add nice interest. The music is beautiful too. Thanks for sharing such beauty.

Hello Carolyn :) It's been a while since I've popped in for a visit ~ these photos are amazing; we too here in Michigan are getting quite a bit of snow ~ all of it disappeared last week when we had warm temps and rain, but now mother nature has decided to bring the snow back. They're saying we could get up to over 9+ inches by the end of Thursday; today we got about 2-3".

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Mariette said...

Dearest Carolyn,

Thanks for your visit on my blog. In The Netherlands it was very icy the told me when I called Papa for his 90th birthday at 4:00 AM this morning. Icy and lots of snow.
Prince Edward's Island is by far not as densely populated, so accidents in winter will not be that frequent. It looks fairytale like right now. You got lucky with such great photos; love the fence poles with their snow 'measurements' atop! Unreal...

Stay warm and cozy and enjoy your tea! That's our afternoon ritual every day.
Lots of love,

Has there ever been a movie shot up there where you live? Because there should be! It's just gorgeous! Your pictures are stunning once again, thanks for sharing them with us!
XOXO

Winter always looks so beautiful in photos and yours are no exception. We love the beauty of the storm but then there is shoveling the snow, plowing the drive way, and thawing out the heated horse tank. No wonder we look forward so spring. You photos are beautiful especially with the beautiful landscape.

WhiteWhispers2u said...

Hello Carolyn~Nice to meet you and thanks for the visit to my blog.These photos are beautiful.I miss the snow, we lived in Montana for 6 years and now in Oregon and I don't miss the rain.
Wow! 7 kids I thought 3 was a lot, good for you.
Happy New Year! ~Cheers Kim

Jackie said...

Snow makes such beautiful photographs especially living in such a lovely place as PEI. Keep safe and warm, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Carolyn,
Just beautiful! Breath taking!
I am one of those rare souls that truly loves winter. The snow outside, the warmth of your home in the evening...
But I am tired of having to drive through every single snow storm to go to work as hospitals don't have snow days. I do long for the time that I will be able to stay at home and enjoy the snow.....

Hugs,
Debbie

Raffaella said...

Wow! The nature covered by white snow is wonderful!

Madelief said...

Dear Carolyn,

While the snow has melted away in Holland, you are still living in a winter wonderland! It all looks magical; the trees, the pond, the picture of the road. What I like about your island is the space, all the green and the fact it has hills. It looks beautiful!

Lieve groet, Madelief

So beautiful. I'm so pleased that you enjoy the beauty of winter. So many people curse at it. I enjoy the change of seasons and the unique beauty that each holds. Thanks you for sharing your beautiful photos. I live in suburbia and we don't get to see the full glory of snow.

Melody said...

Very pretty pictures, as always! I have one question, why isn't the pond frozen over?

Ann said...

Love walking in the snow...it always feel warm, serene and so quiet.

Rowan said...

Beautiful snow photos and very brave of you to drive in it - snow and cars don't mix as far as I'm concerned:)

magda said...

Tanya said...

Carolyn, I your photos are absolutely beautiful. I live in Nova Scotia and we have no snow!! Happy New Year!

Beverly said...

It is all beautiful, and I did enjoy going along.

Our snow is gone, but there is a possibility of more tonight.

Lounging with a Latte said...

I'm catching up on blog reading! Love all your beautiful photos of the snow in your region. You have very dramatic changes to your seasons. We have very mild winters where I live in the Riverland region of South Australia and don't get snow.

Pam said...

Carolyn, Your island is beautiful no matter which season. Love the pictures. We don't often have snow in Arkansas. When we do get more than 1" it shuts everything down. Was visiting with my SIL who travels a lot. Asked her if she had ever been to PEI, and she said yes. Said it was beautiful there and loved her time there. It's on my list of places to visit.

It may be bleak but your photos of it are beautiful!

Hope your New Year is wonderful!

Beautiful snow pics. Love the foggy look to them.

Lottie said...

Your photos are incredible!

countrycottagegirl said...

So very pretty! You sure take amazing pictures! Not only do you need to publish a tea calendar, but also a winterscape calendar as well! Gosh for that matter you could publish books of your photography! Wish you could send some of that snow hear to north Georgia! Blessings!

The Winter Scenes are Breath Taking!! Your Photography skills are amazing.

Happy 2011,

Carol said...

Your winter snowy photos are just beautiful Carolyn. I so enjoyed walking/riding along in the fluffy snow. The landscape with the old fence is truly beautiful. The old fence posts do add mystery and beauty to the composition. Lovely bucolic midwinter settings. It looks a bit dangerous on the road however!
