Day 334: First Snow

Day 334: First Snow, originally uploaded by susanvg.

Through the window the first snow of the season settled on branches turning the world white. Still ephemeral, as the day warms up the branches shed their ermine stoles. Each year the first snowfall is enchanting, a window into the fairytale of the snow maiden. December is coming.

Here is the same view at the beginning of the month.


  1. It was fun to see the "before" and "after" shots, Susan. Looks like you got a little taste of winter - more is on the way for us, too.

  2. Isn't it beautiful? And what a lovely way to describe it!

  3. The older I get, the less I appreciate the beauty of winter. I think I aspire to become a snow bird :-). Lovely shot just the same.

  4. Beautiful scene that I'm glad I'm not seeing out my window right now!
