outside : inside

the backyard has transformed from this:





to this:





which is actually quite lovely to walk about in, all glitter and crunch beneath one's bootsoles. tuesday i spent about six minutes wandering the crystalline snowscape before my gloved fingers went from aching to numb, which i tend to take as a cue to head indoors.

some things about winter are quite nice.

Sometimes I miss winter... snuggling up with a blanket, drinking hot cocoa, wearing sweaters...
Love the pics - as always :)

Hi Nicole,
I've been checking out your blog for quite a while. I had no ideal you were so close...I'm up in Fort Wayne. Hi neighbor!

I've been wanting to get into photography also. Your pics are great! Good Luck!

lambent - a great word!

Here in Utah it is just that sort of day today - i just wrote about that earlier today on my blog. I love winter.

Your blog is great - I will stop by often.

I am loving how you spun the background in your first photo. I noticed that on your new photo site and thought that was so neat. Best wishes for your photog venture, your work is amazing!

We've been turning to books for solace too. Such comfort in those bright pages.

Nic...your photos always make me say "awe"...and then "awe" again, until I tear myself away. :)
