Spring is Coming?

This delicate-looking image is simply breathtaking.  I thought I would share this one today for a couple of reasons.  First is that we are still in the icy grips of winter around here.  Snow is threatening to invade once again, and while it has been pretty mild compared to last year, I am ready to be done with the white stuff.

Even though the scene is wintry, the fact that these are frozen spider webs gives hope that warmer weather is, in fact, coming again.  Soon we will have flowers blooming, and the trees will leaf out, and we will enjoy the brief time in which we are comfortable.  Yes spring will soon be here, to be followed by the often crushing heat and humidity of the summer.  That will make us long for the cooler weather that fall and later winter brings.

It seems that we humans are as fickle with our perception of the weather as we are with many other things in life.  We always seem to want that which is just beyond us.  For now, I think I will just enjoy the beauty of the webs that have been frozen in time.

    So cool! It almost looks like a cracked reflection on a shiny frozen pond.

      I know! I had to dig around a bit to ensure that this was a real photo and not something else, it is gorgeous though.

  2. Beautiful spider webs. Could be looking out some of my windows here in Montana. Thanks for the beauty in winter. I think sometimes we forget in the midst of the bitter cold, that Mother Nature has beauty in every season. May spring shine her sunny face on you soon.

      Well it would appear spring might be gaining the upper hand…two days of snow, and none of it stuck around…I would say that might mean spring is on the horizon. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    GORGEOUS shot! Photos like this make me wish I had a fancy camera and the eye people like this have.

      I am sure you have a fine eye…I have learned over the years that if you do something long enough you personal style and talents will appeal to someone somewhere. Those photographers for National Geographic and such are just appealing to A LOT of people.
