Truly Winter

When the snow in the forest does nothing but get deeper, you know it's truly winter. This photo was taken in a sun puddle on the forest floor. It's a spot that only sees the sun for a few minutes each day. It is truly winter...

When Shyla waves and there's snow stuck to the bottom of her paw, it's truly winter. She would like you to notice that she's waving with her left paw. She now knows cues for waving with either her left or her right paws!

When the sun shines with a deep reddish glow at sunrise, it is truly winter.
The low angle sun and the soft sunlight are my favorite parts of winter!

  1. Yes, that's Winter alright. I'd know it anywhere. Enjoy those sun puddles! Shyla is such a clever girl, and the colors in these pictures is extraordinary.
    Piper is going for her Autumn Bath at the groomer's tomorrow, while I simultaneously take her big beds to a laundramat (they don't fit in my washer) and try to get them all fresh and clean. This is a ritual I try to leave til it's cold enough that I think she will stay out of the boggy pond. Fingers crossed!

  8. I keep coming back to that first shot. To me it shows the beauty of dog.
    Truly winter indeed. It is getting rather hot here, like summer has already begun.
