I love how the least horizontal space has snow on it. Gorgeous sky behind all of that, too!

Truly beautiful snap, composition is great.

Mojo said...

Hey, I recognize that snow! I noticed that it was easy to tell which way the wind was blowing at my house by looking at the trunks of the trees. They were caked on one side all the way up.

Nice shooting, and it's good you got it when you did!

Colin Campbell said...

Lovely shot.

Lovely photo, Carver. The little snow clumps look like blossoms on the tree.

Beautiful blue backdrop for the puffs of white and branches. A fairyland!

Wonderful. :)
I like the the look of the clear blue sky against the snow covered branches.

Michele said...

That is FANTASTIC! The little bits of snow clinging to the branches is beautiful against that blue sky. A wonderful photograph, Carver!

It does look like snow buds. So delictae.

This is very sweetly done. It makes winter look tolerable. Happy SWF!

The snow lingering on the tree branches is a beautiful sight. Though probably cold, it's the kind of shot that one will love to have a hot cup of cocoa while admiring them :)
Happy Weekend Carver!!! {HUGS}

I love those cotton balls of snow against that blue sky.

Cactus Jack Splash said...

Great photo - the blue sky is a perfect background to the tree and snow.

Very nice one, with the snow on the trees and the blue sky at the bachground.

Cotton balls on a tree against the deep blue sky. It sounds like a poem. Great Sky Watch, Carver.

Looking at the Sky on Friday said...

Carver, this is a beautiful shot. The snow in the top of that tree looked like cotton as it was opening up before I could see the whole picture. :)

Carletta said...

I love the framing! I always love looking at the bare tree branches taking on a 'coat' of snow.
This looks like my world as well.

mommanator said...

Is that a cotton tree Teehee

maryt/theteach said...

Carver, very interesting how the snow collected on the branches! :)

RuneK said...

Beautiful colored.

ellen b said...

I know some of y'all might be really tired of your snow just about now but for us who rarely see it in person it's such a glorious sight! Beautiful photo Carver!

Dianne said...

very pretty

the snow against the sky is perfect

Robert V. Sobczak said...

It almost looks like snow "blooms" in the way the white is clumped on the end of the branches. Winter appears to be mimicking spring, or looking forward to it.

fishing guy said...

Carver: We get that snow in the trees but not often that blue sky.

starnitesky said...

The contrast against the blue sky is stunning the snow makes it extra special.

"Ice Pony Girl" said...

Frozen cotton on the trees...lovely.

Horsoon said...

This is a Whoa shot!! ;)

2sweetnsaxy said...

Snow always looks so great against the bright blue sky. I like that the snow almost looks like flowers on the branches.

Poutalicious said...

It looks like there is cotton growing on the branches. Beauti-mous.
