|Snow sticking to moss-covered branches - Sequim, WA|
I found it about half an hour from my home, up on Palo Alto Road in Sequim, WA. Slushy roads and all, there was plenty of snow that was sticking and more was coming down as well.
|I liked the deep red of the structure nearly matching the same|
color of the branches in contrast to the deeper green of the trees.
Perhaps I need to do more walking about... but the damp cold made its way into my feet and hands all too quickly and I was more than ready to return to the heated seats of my front-wheel drive vehicle.
|The temperature was staying low enough to keep the road|
covered and for the precipitation to fall as snow, not rain.
This was a solitary Christmas as all my children were in different places and I used my time well. I did not feel sad or sorry for myself for the time alone. I slept late and made myself a colorful omelet, went out and took some photographs and later was invited to a small gathering.
As the day is winding down, I realize that it has been just what I wanted for Christmas... a day of peace and joy. I hope each of you are finding some of that for yourselves as well.
|This last photo seems to sum up my day... surrounded by|
other trees, I still am a single, somewhat different version.
