Picture Winter - 7

"Calm Beauty"

This prompt was perfect for this morning. It was snowing lightly, the sky was mostly grey, and there was definitely a quiet hush over the entire neighborhood. I love that about snow.  This shot is from the front porch. Can't you just feel the stillness?

This one from the back deck, with the snow settling on one of the tiki torches.

Very beautiful - and very tranquil... Love your home. And the Carpenters are one of my favourites. :)

Yes, there is such a calm about snowy scenes like yours Cheri ... it is not something I experience too often though - you have captured it beautifully :-)

I love the initial calmness as well....it's what follows I don't like.

Yes, it really does feel so calm and still - I could feel my shoulders relaxing as soon as I looked at it!
