a walk by the river


here's to the new snow that led me to the river



here's to the sound of flowing water in the stillness of winter



here's to the beauty that is everywhere when we look for it. This river just happens to be just a few steps away from my office.

Deb-- I am so glad you got a camera. These photos are so beautiful. What a great scene to have just a short distance from the office. Just beautiful.

Deb-

Very cool photos. I got out snapped some photos too and like you I had the chance to enjoy the sound of moving water and even got a couple pictures of a rogue mallard drake who just hasn't gotten the hint yet that it's time to migrate.

After looking at your photos I realized that the thing I was missing is conifers. I love the color that they bring to the winter landscape. Thanks again for posting these photos.

Just a few steps from my office is urban blight and homeless folk. Looks good from the sixth floor, but when you get at street level . . . I wish I was at Roundrock right now!

I will keep those beautiful pictures in mind as I head back to southern Arizona tomorrow.

Very nice! I do wish it would snow here every now and then...

beautiful photos Deb, and you're so right.. beauty can be found anywhere if we keep our eyes and more importantly, hearts, open to that beauty.
I hope you're feeling better.. I've been under the weather myself and hope to visit more often soon.
May the new year bring you many blessings,
Cindy

Thanks everyone. It was really a treat to be able to walk outside for a few minutes, take a few pictures, and share them right away!

Chris-have a good trip, and keep in touch. And next time you're in Minnesota, perhaps you and Sara could come up for some birding and jamming!

And here's to the camera! What a beautiful shot. I would have thought you'd have more ice with those frigid early Dec. temps. :)
