Snow blankets each stair tread on an early winter day. November 28, 2013.
There’s something about this leaf, nearly encrusted in the early winter’s ice, that reminds me of home. November 30th, 2013.
Pine needles, heavy with ice, glow in the sun. November 30, 2013.
Ice covered branch reaching out into a clearing. November 30, 2013.
If this isn’t the cutest damn baby pine tree in the history of snowy winter days, then I don’t know what is. November 30, 2013.
Had a lot of fun on my snowy adventure on Saturday - stay tuned for an overwhelming amount of bokeh over the coming week from that adventure! November 30, 2013.
Ice crystals on wintery trees make for amazing bokeh! November 30th, 2013.
Thanksgiving brought me home to the Adirondacks for a few days, and this morning I went for a drive after brunch with friends and found some beautiful sights of last night’s snow and ice blanketing balsam boughs. November 30, 2013.
The mist broke for a few brief minutes on my road home from Boston to the Adirondacks for Thanksgiving, and I was granted this view looking north over Lake Champlain. November 27th, 2013.
As one of the masses on the road traveling for Thanksgiving this week, I enjoyed this view from my window for most of the drive home from Boston to the Adirondacks in Upstate NY on Wednesday. It was foggy and cloudy nearly the entire way but thankfully it was above freezing - so it was raining rather than snowing or sleeting, and we had wet roads instead of icy treks over Vermont’s mountain passes.

Saturday night’s sunset from the wine bar at BWI - it was simply stunning. November 23, 2013.
After the memorial on Saturday I walked around the grounds of University of Maryland’s Memorial Chapel, and found this beautiful fountain - where someone, I assume one of the many who gathered to pay their respects for the deceased, had left this flower. November 23, 2013.
Saturday’s memorial turned into an 18 hour “day-trip”, which included spending 5 1/2 hours at BWI when Southwest couldn’t get me on standby on an earlier flight because all the earlier flights were AirTran, and even though the airlines merged, apparently tickets aren’t transferable between them. So, being the kind of woman I am, I parked myself in a booth at a wine bar, and had some fun shooting the sunset, the planes taking off… and in this case, the sunset and the planes taking off AND a bottle of wine. November 23, 2013.
Saturday I flew down to Baltimore to attend a memorial for a friend’s mother who passed away. The memorial was held at the Memorial Chapel on University of Maryland’s campus, and the vaulted ceiling in the chapel was a work of art - simple at first glance, but incredibly complex in its execution. After the service, I returned to the chapel for this shot, which speaks to me in a way I can’t explain. November 23, 2013.
