hushed...

"The cold was our pride, the snow was our beauty.   It fell and fell, lacing day and night together in a milky haze, making everything quieter as it fell, so that winter seemed to partake of religion in a way no other season did, hushed, solemn." 
-   Patricia Hampl

  12. Vicky, I'm freezed totally this time visiting your blog, more so because I was caught unawares as I was in my casuals and sitting in my cozy room at my desktop.
    Just fabulous and extraordinary pics of snowy nature.You are so lucky to be out there.We Indians can only dream of such white nature or else have to travel and then ride high mountain peaks of Himalayas.
    The quote needs no introduction with your pics.

    Oooooophs !!!!. I am just going right now to have two large cups of red hot Nescafe to warm up my freezed body to survive and surely come again to visit you with all my woolens on.
    Special Thanks for this post.
