Seaside Snow

I try to go out with my camera after a big snowfall, especially when the sun comes out. The snow has a different quality here on the coast. Something about the light – or maybe the openness of the sky and the ocean. Anyway, I like it.  Here are some of my images:

The windows provide an icy view of the back yard.

Winterized boats, waiting patiently in an orderly line at the marina. It’s hard to believe they’ll be back in the water in just a couple of months.

Queen Ann’s Lace captures small cups of snow.

The Rhododendron curls its leaves against the cold.

While inside, on a kitchen window ledge, my miniature phalaenopsis “Timothy Christopher” flaunts its new flowers.

    You live in such a gorgeous spot, lucky us to see it through your eyes.

    In your 1st shot across the water there is a small lighthouse (LH) structure. I know that a homeowner built it years ago. Does it have a functional light or is this his/her expression of LH-enthrallment? Either way it is charming.

    Again thanks for the tour.

      Thanks for dropping in, GP. I’m not sure what you mean by “functional.” The light in the lighthouse does work, but it’s not used for navigation or anything. It just looks nice.
