Walking in glitter

Overnight we received a couple inches of snow.
It was bitterly cold when I went to feed the birds,
12 degrees.
I sat on the deck with a cup of hot tea.

A slight breeze came up.
The air filled with glittering snow.
I left the deck and began to walk down my street.

I wanted to be in the glitter.
I wanted to be in the lights.

An animal track on my driveway
reminded me of the butterflies.

Everywhere I looked I saw fairy lights.
I forgot to be cold.

Dear Cathy,
Thank you! I was kind of strange today. I accidently went walking and did not take very many pictures. I was in awe the whole time at how beautiful the air was...
Ahhh...Winter.

Dear Marie,
It is amazing how Mother Nature can take a winter day and turn it into a magical experience. I forgot myself for at least half an hour.

"Walking in glitter"

This brought to mind the glitter of cold snowy day. And now that I love taking photos, my mind goes to ~~ how to photograph it?

Then I scrolled down to read your entry.

And you have captured it. You and your camera, are amazing.

And I love seeing the lovely and amazing photos that people take. They are inspiration to me.

Beautiful! I love all the faerie lights, and globes too.

Perhaps you wondered into the land of the Fae... :)

Dear Sprite,
I was in the Land of the Fae...
I was captured and entertained and totally forgot who I was.
He-he-he,
I loved every minute of it!
