And then it snowed.

Before I move on entirely, I thought I could give proof that I do actually look UP from time to time. πŸ™‚

While landscapes, or rather pondscapes in this case, are not my forte, you might be interested to see where I took all of the shots that I featured over the last month and a half.

  4. It’s good to look up the sky and surroundings πŸ™‚
    (Still, I see your sharp gazing eyes in the second photo.
    Its chilling clarity is beautiful)

    • Thank you, Yoshisensei. It is very nice to look up from time to time, isn’t it. πŸ™‚ Especially when surrounded by such magnificent scenery.

  5. There is a still and quiet place inside of me where there are no absolutes. #3 is as close to a representation of that place as I think possible. Thank you.

  6. Love what you’ve done with the available light in your second offering, Melanie. How inviting!

  8. Wow. Was it skatable?

    February 26, 2013 at 1:32 am

    • Yes, later into our time there it became skatable. We’ve brought along skates in the past, but this year I had a cracked rib (from pneumonia), and so wasn’t interested in further injury. My partner did bring along her skates, but she never did put them on this time. Our little one was just happy slip sliding all over the place like a maniac on her snow boots, and, really, that is just as much fun (and without the ankle pain).

  9. Gorgeous. Can’t wait to get to Maine this summer.

    February 26, 2013 at 8:55 am

    • πŸ™‚ Yeah, me, too, I can’t wait to get back up there, myself!

    Great pics, Lemony! The reflections of the clouds on the frozen pond somewhat remind me of auroras. πŸ˜€

    February 26, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    • Thank you, Yas. I see what you mean about the clouds and auroras. I see it! πŸ™‚

      February 26, 2013 at 7:32 pm

      • Yas

        You’re welcome! πŸ˜€ It’s fun interpreting shapes in photos. πŸ˜‰

  12. Beautiful!

  13. That is not a pond, that is an OCEAN! πŸ™‚

    February 26, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    • πŸ™‚ I’ve always thought it strange that they call them ponds in Maine, but they measure ponds and lakes by depth there (unlike in other states). Externally, it has more the appearance of a lake.

  14. Love the transformation. The pond that keeps on giving… : )

    February 26, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    • Thank you, Karen. Yes, this pond, indeed, gives and gives. I’m already looking forward to next winter! πŸ™‚

  15. That second shot is amazing…..and how after that shot can you say landscapes aren’t your forte? What a beautiful part of the world you live in πŸ™‚

    Beautiful sequence. I knew you had sky in your part of the world, but it is nice to get confirmation. Wouldn’t want to have a distorted picture of reality. πŸ˜€

    March 10, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    • Ha ha ha! πŸ˜€ I see you’ve made one of your wonderful visits. I love it when you stop in and stay for a while. Thank you so much for your many comments. I’m going to go read and enjoy them all!
