January Grey

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanates from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

It was one of those days when the fresh blanket of snow makes everything so beautiful, you can’t help but want to be out in it…but once the northeast wind tugs at your buttons with icy fingers and stings your face to a bright crimson, you immediately wonder what you were thinking of. I managed to stay out long enough to get a few pictures around town, and will post some in the coming days. This shot was snapped on the grounds of a private school that was closed due to the storm.

  1. Fantastic, Nancy. I knew this shot was out there yesterday, but we didn’t have a the chance to take it… Couldn’t have touched this one anyway! :-)

  2. Nancy, lovely photo. I can see you too can’t resist heading out to take photos of these simple beauties. I have SO many photos that will never be shared, but even those give me great joy — even remembering the moment. Thanks for sharing this lovely January moment with us.
