Winter Solstice

The winter solstice marks a turning point - the longest night of the year with the promise of the light returning. It's a time to celebrate, a time to dream and to reflect.
A time to honor sweet mother earth, pray and co-create a New Earth.

Hoar Frost

I always get excited when we have a day with hoar frost - it is a rare phenomenon. And a photographer's dream as the white, frosty needles make great macro images. Unfortunately it was a windy morning but I managed to get a few close-ups and a few landscape shots from this winter wonderland. 
Here is an explanation from wikipedia:
Hoar frost, white frost or rime is the tiny solid deposition of water vapor from saturated air which occurs when the temperature of the surfaces is below freezing point.

Enjoy, Susanne

A foggy day in northern Wisconsin

Foggy, misty and even rainy days are a favorite of mine - though I am very grateful for every bit of sunshine we can get during the winter months. 
The fog creates such a mysterious and dreamlike atmosphere, like everything comes to a halt - it makes me pause, contemplate and listen to the secrets hidden from our ordinary view and ears.
With my camera I try to capture that mood. 
Enjoy, Susanne
