This was made this morning on the last day of 2010!
The definitive of today recedes into the fog of the future.
May 2011 bring you all that you wish for.
Looking east down our lake.
The ice is getting more and more solid.
Soon we will see snowmobile tracks. When that happens it will be safe to walk out some distance.
Until then, we wait.
Sunlight, new snow and ordinary objects often interact to give intriguing patterns:
Looking downward when you’re outside can be rewarding. (Often more rewarding than looking upward.)
May Santa be good to you!
Snow in the wrong places can be a major problem. (Think of Heathrow Airport.)
However, in the right places it can give exciting beauty.
Winter has many faces.
Last week I was in Colorado skiing with a group of wrinklers.
We had a fine time! A good early season warmup.
This is what it looks like from the top of High Alpine on Snowmass. We had the place to ourselves.
One Mile Bay has been frozen for about a week now. We’ve also had some snow.
It will be this way until April.
The ice builds with inevitable persistance as the temperature drops.
The water in One Mile Bay is close to freezing.
Another few days of open water.
And then the ice won’t leave until mid-April.
7:30 am in the square in front of the Shaanxi Provincial Buildings, groups and individuals begin their day.
