the snow, the camera, and me










Peaceful, cold, and quiet. I wander, camera in hand.
I become lost in a world of contradiction.
Sunny days and weekly snow squalls.
Unforgiving land and soft beauty.
Snowflakes and desert plants.
Frozen fingers, warm soul.

    You're singing my song!!
    Your sage is sprinkled in crystals. That pod is cradling diamonds.

  2. Lovely. I'm enjoying sharing the sensations through your photos and words... since I'm in SoCal and no where near frozen anything. :)

  3. The photos of the snow on the desert sand are so beautiful (as are all of them!!). It's finally snowing here in New York, as I type this, and I'm hoping we get more than an inch or two so I can't say you've seen more snow in the desert than we've had here in NY anymore!! : ) Have a beautiful day!!!

    1. Snow in the desert is always a treat. I think I spend more time outside when it's snowing that when the sun I out!
      Glad to hear you're finally getting snow....makes it seem more Christmas-y!

  4. Photo 4 & 5 could also be water being whipped by winds ... the last photo is amazing, liking the contrasts in textures. Snow has arrived several times in our area but yesterday's snow was the first that decided to stay. First I admired, took photos, then shoveled, then moaned about the cars that do not clear the snow off their back windows! Ah yes winter has made itself comfortable, I guess we need to buckle in for a long bumpy winter ride :)

    1. So you finally got a little snow! Your description sounds just like my days back in Wisconsin. Admire, photograph, shovel. I do remember those days well!

  5. Gosh you're really going to have to do something with these photos, they're stunning!
    My favourites are 4 & 5. I like the contrast between the wind blown sand, and the snow that now covers it. The snow almost looks like salt. In Australia we have a lot of inland, arid salt lakes, which look a little like your desert at the moment.

    1. Thanks, Chrisy! The sand, the ripples, the wind, all make my imagination go crazy. Some days I am on the ocean, some days the Sahara desert. Today, the wind was blowing the sand in the air....made me think of the deserts the Bedouins crossed with camels!
