A beautiful way to wake up.

.

We had a small amount of the white stuff last night and crazy as it sounds, it was the first to actually stick on the ground this winter.

In celebration of that I thought I would share a few glimpses out our windows this morning…. because sunrise over snow is pretty damned spectacular.

After I posted a few of these to Facebook, I saw our farming neighbor had posted some as well. Here’s his shot, with our house and barn in the background.

  1. The first winter I was here, we had a pretty big snow, well, for here anyway. I had moved up from Florida and were living on a steep hill, so no way was I driving in that. I took off for work at 4:30 AM to walk about a mile and a half to work. It was beautiful. No cars on the street or anything moving within earshot, just my boots crunching into the snow and big fat flakes softly touching down all around me. I was cold as Hell when I got to work but I was glad to have done it when I was coming up the gray, slushy Main Street on my way home. I love your sunrise pics. Snow or not, you get a lot of them and I love your appropriately situated neighbors. I like all the music and I believe in appropriate volume. If that was me, I’d be thinking win-win. Nice post, thank you.

  2. I commend you on getting a sunrise on “film” that looks just as good as it does in real life. For some reason, every picture I take of our pretty winter sunrises just ends up looking like a yellowish-orange blob.
