You can’t fight it, so you might as well ask for support. 😉
This poor little guy was wind-blown into the house a couple of evenings ago.
He seemed to bounce and then landed on the roof of my truck. He initially didn’t look very well but was moving about.
I kept an eye on him and about 20 minutes later, he flew away. I was quite concerned about him because ravens would consider him to be a tasty snack. They are huge, aggressive, and smart.
Happily, he was able to recover before the ravens realised he was there.
A win for the ptarmigans. Maybe, a covid-mitigating win for all of us is coming soon.
Happy week. 🙂
This post was first published in early December, 2017. I love these photos and thought it was time to show them again. Have a good weekend. 🙂
Here on the edge of Great Slave Lake, where I am north of 60 degrees N latitude, I feel like I am living inside a winter post card.
We are only getting about six – seven hours of daylight now but the landscape that comes into view is spectacular.
At night, there is also a light show.
At two in the afternoon, the sun is getting ready to go down.
The light and colours are here are almost monochromatic, and very restful.
What does your winter look like?
It snowed some more!
Happy Monday, everyone, have a good week. 🙂
Not too cold yet, but it’s definitely frosty. ❄️
Happy November. 🙂
We’re really into late autumn now and for many of us, winter is coming. For some of us, it’s already here …
Time to hear its voice; seek its beauty.
Have a nice week, everyone. 🙂
I like a good candle.
Aren’t these great colours? I love this combination. No groundhog required. 🙂
Much of Canada and the northern United States has been sitting in an icy, windy, thumpingly cold Arctic low for the past one or two weeks.
Some more southerly parts have been even colder than us, and we in the southern NWT had anywhere between -36 and -40C (-33 to -40 F). It takes me about seven minutes to walk to work, and by the time I get there, my eyelashes have collected ice from my freezing breath. It’s been pretty chilly.
But I’ve had lovely memories, like this one, to sustain me.
And this one.
The north is very blue and white right now, but I do like the southern blue and white. 🙂
On a recent road trip, I recorded our entry into the light.
The frosty, shrouded air …
… began to turn orange.
The sun began to appear …
amid the trees until …
Sometimes, breaking into the light comes after a lovely lustrous rime.
Greetings from the frosty northern sun. 🙂
