the orange shovel

leans against the wall, waiting for the snow to stop

If you hadn't pointed it out, I wouldn't have seen it. You could write a children's book with that opening sentence. It was fed up waiting so decided to take a walk, unbeknownst to its owners who were lighting up the fire for a cosy evening...

That looks like an enchanted house in a fairy tale!

Amin said...

Wonderful photo.

Birdman said...

The snow is perfect in this shot. Another classic winter in VT image.

Malyss said...

yes, all that has to do with something fairy...Where are the imps?..and the white witch?..Soooo poetic!

Steffe said...

Perfect title.

Abe Lincoln said...

That is one sweet looking house and scene. The house fits in the space like fingers in a glove.

Anya said...

I have also a ORANGE shovel ;)
LOL


You are very creative
"I mean the tittle is puurfect"
Fantastic shot !!!!

Deden said...

Jacob said...

Superbly composed with that house peeking out of the trees laden with snow and the flakes falling gently to the ground.

The picture does need to be embiggened to see clearly the shovel...

You have such a great eye, Brattcat! And such a great sense of what makes a good picture. And a great way with words.

It is always a pleasure to go to Brattleboro!

Hope you have a great weekend, too!

I do see the orange shovel, but the beauty of the photo is what I see the most. Wow, gorgeous.

Small City Scenes said...

Woezer! What a perfect shot. You need to frame this.
Is this the same house as in the previous post---only at a different angle? Good eye!! MB

brattcat said...

Same storm, same neighborhood, MB, but different house.
Thank you, everyone! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your comments.

I am utterly enchanted by this photo: the balance of color, the framing of the house, the capture of snowflakes, and that perfect orange shovel which, as cieldequimper says, would make a great opening for a children's book.

This is a picture of a perfect snowy day in New England. Simply beautiful.

Had to enlarge this one to see the orange shovel. Really beautiful.

So beautiful and so perfect. It reminds me of a Thomas Kinkade painting.

Lois said...

I was also going to say that it looks like a Thomas Kinkade painting! It's so perfect that it almost doesn't look real.

Amin said...

Lovely picture..........

Rob and Mandy said...

How enchanting. A fairy tale picture.

Amin said...

BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

Julie said...

I have enjoyed the comments nearly as much as the photograph, BC.

The scene is like wonderland to eyes from Australia. I cannot imagine the privations that the current burst of weather is having all down your East coast. However, with views like this, there is some compensation.

Bill said...

Wonderful picture, lovely house.

Hilda said...

I feel like I've just stepped into a fairy tale. Beautiful.

Jilly said...

Yesterday's photo and today's are just glorious. Almost like a painting. Bravo.

Cezar and Léia said...

I enlarged the picture, it's a wonderful composition, poetic indeed!
wow so many snow!
It's time to stay inside, enjoying a great hot chocolate, isn't it?
A great weekend dear friend!
Léia

Amin said...

Woderful composition.

Virginia said...

How beautiful and now I can relate to the snow text! Love the orange shovel. I'll bet you bought it thinking of a photo! :)

JM said...

What a gorgeous snow scene!
Another painting! :-)

Tulsa Gentleman said...

I don't always comment but I always enjoy your photos. This one is a classic. Thanks.

slim said...

What a magnificent house and you caught it in all its wintry splendor.

This is an image that children's author/illustrator Chris VanAllsburg might begin one of his mysterious stories with.

Amin said...

BEAUTIFUL.

A Lady's Life said...

this is a beautiful shot!!!

VP said...

Another beautiful house in a perfect location. I'd say even a perfect weather, in this case, snow included!

Amin said...

Very beautiful picture.

Paula said...

You know this looks like a miniature painting, right? The mention of the orange shovel reminds me of the red wheelbarrow upon which so much depends...
