Truly beautiful.

My woods are dark and dank and wet although the sun is supposed to shine today and the rest of the week.
So sayeth the weather person. MB

I love the snow flurries in this shot. I bet it was quiet when you took this photo.

Jacob said...

Well Ms. Brattcat, I do appreciate your thinking about your friends and that you care enough to offer us a peep at these silent woods deep in layers of snow.

That's very nice of you.

And a "peep" is all I need.

But dang, it's very cold again here this morning. No snow, though.

Which is fine 'cause now I've had my "peep"! :-)

I audibly "ahhhed" when I saw this picture. Truly breathtaking! I love to sit quietly in the woods when the snow is falling. It's the most beautiful sound.

Abe Lincoln said...

Peep? or Peek? It looks just like the view out back. LOL

I am ready for planing seed time.

Lois said...

So pretty! Our woods don't look like this, but they are still a little cold for this time of year.

Elenka said...

I love the composition of that shot. The snowfall yesterday was indeed beautiful....and the sun is out today! AND it's school vacation! Happy Days.

Whose woods are those? I think I know! A whitely beautiful photo, though.

"Stopping By Woods" can be a spiritual experience, and you chose a lovely quote to go with your equally lovely photo. Are you by any chance a literature teacher (I guess I could check your profile!) or poet because you always have lovely lines of poetic words to accompany your photos. Or, perhaps you just have an appreciation for poetry and the loveliness of world of words!

Just picked up my copy of AAA magazine. There's a poetic theme this month w/ Frost's mailbox on the cover.
A favorite of mine.

It is really coming down in this. Snow can be a nuisance when we get out in it but it is so beautiful while it falls fresh all around.

JM said...

This looks so Christmas to me! Are you still celebrating? :-))) Wonderful snow scene indeed!

Sunny said...

It looks like the view from my dining room. As lovely as it is, I have had enough winter. Bad attitude for living in New England, right? Ha-ha!
Sunny :)
P.S. I like your idea of taking pictures together.
My word verification is 'nests' works very well with your woodland picture!

That's a Seurat without the ballerina.

Paula said...

There's something about seeing snow falling that's just so soothing to me. I think it's the implied silence. I'm in awe of this one.

Rob and Mandy said...

Very nice! The woods here are very green, as it is spring already

Amin said...

It was sunny to day,I saw weak sunlight from my window.

Frank said...

This scene doesn't look real...what, no sand and surf?

Foreboding much!

In Real Life said...

A magical fairytale forest!

I'm so glad I stopped by these VT. woods. You have a knack for capturing the snow falling . . . simply beautiful.

Clueless & I would enjoy getting together with you & Mr. BC when you are prowling around in Boston next month. When will you be in town?

Malyss said...

It's like entering the world of Narnia....

Serge Cornillet said...

Superbe view, like in Christmas time.
Bye,

But during the trip...so much snow... :)

This is just too, too beautiful!

Our large consignment of newly minted maple sugar candies arrived this week from Vermont awakening wonderful memories of our time there.

Julie said...

Indeed, one of my all-time favourites.

But you have promises to keep. . .and miles to go before you sleep. . .

This is not real?
