It was the first snow of 2016 here and fortunately it wasn’t more than an inch or so. Fortunate because we don’t have a snow shovel yet. Mostly it was very windy and cold! Winter is making it’s presence known after the comfortable temperatures we had the end of last year. This photo was taken in January of 2014. Interesting thing, it’s January again, I have red roses again and it’s snowing outside again. But this time I didn’t feel like opening the back door to recreate the shot; I just went back and edited this one differently.
Here is the original post showing the rose in all of it’s red and snow white glory.
I prefer this edit…still no snow here – and yesterday we had temperatures in the mid-50s…but it is coming – for all of us…
I like both versions but this one has a nice mood about it. Mid 50’s??? grumble grumble
Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
You are very welcome my friend 🙂
I need snow. But none here in NY.
Will give the snow your GPS coordinates – happily!!!
When I first saw this photo, I thought it was going to be another tribute to David Bowie. I wasn’t, but I think it’s a good image for Bowie’s passing.
May he rest in peace but it was not intended to be so. Just a coincidence.
I like both versions!
Thank you 🙂 Is it warm out there today because it’s currently 9 degrees here.
Both – the colorful and the monochrome – are beautiful!
Here is minus 7 F (-22 Celcius) and I won’t spend too long for outdoor photography on such cold 🙂
It’s a “balmy” 20 right now and I don’t even want to venture out to get the mail LOL
A lovely contrast….Let’s hope it is an easier winter all around. And, what??? No snow shovel???
I sure hope it’s easier but nature can be quite the trickster…yeah I know. What were we NOT thinking about not having the shovel.
No snow here yet…hopefully none until February!
This snow and cold can leave now. I’ve seen it now it can go!
