Bright Lights


We had a wild, windy day yesterday with great big, wet snowflakes falling fast and furious. It was unwelcome weather because I was going out to a dance performance (more about that in a later post).  The big white strips caught in mid-air are the snow flakes. The snow was falling so fast that it was difficult to get a photo of it. You can see the large flakes lying on the patio floor.

 It is rather late in the season to be getting snow where I live. We also got a large snow fall early in the season which is again unusual. The weather is largely unpredictable around the globe these days. 

My small garden will have to wait awhile until the weather warms up but I'm sure the skiers are happy with the fresh snow.
I like the pretty photos snow helps to create and I simply love looking at the bright lights at night on a snowy mountain. I can see these scenes from my desk.


It is most difficult to get a night shot with my camera.  
I'm happy with these few that I'm sharing with you. 
 I hope you like them too.

    1. Thank you, Jan. I was blessed to be able to get these photos today. I try from time to time and mostly they come out blurred. Love and blessings to you too, Penny

  3. My goodness, Penny, your photos are beautiful. I used to work at UBC (long ago) and everyone would laugh at me when, as we left the big library building each day, I would always exclaim, "oh, look at those mountains!" You are so lucky to have that wonderful view. Your patio is lovely, too. I hope we get to see pictures of it in the summer.

    1. Lindy Lou, I think you're right. I saw Europe's snow on television. In Romania the snow was to the rooftops!

  5. That snowy ski run looks mighty familiar. I have a corner of the night lights that I can see from my desk, too.

    I like the twilight photo with the lights just beginning to glow. Nice one. Spring skiing should be pretty good this year - for those who do such things.

    1. Hi Stephanie, so good to see you. I'm glad you can see the view from your desk. Doesn't it make a delightful sight? Sure beats looking at a building.

  6. Beautiful photos, just breath-taking. I love your view. I am so fortunate to have a mountain view also. The more I stare at the mountains, they seem to give strength. Our valley glows at night, too. I've yet to learn how to take night time shots. I'll practice more with dusk pictures. Thanks for stopping by. Have a good week!
