Happy Thoughts

After 3.5 days of  non-stop snow early in the week the sun came out to say hello.


There were also some atmospheric low lying clouds left behind.

 

I like the lightly striated clouds against the pale blue sky.


I also like the cross in the newly renovated church steeple which peeks out above the leaves. At night it lights up the sky.


I wish you all a beautiful weekend with happy times and happy thoughts.

  4. Sadly there is more snow expected soon. I hope that will be the end of it for this year. Though the snow dusting on the top of the mountains look beautiful, I'm longing for more sunshine and the beloved cherry blossoms :-)

  9. Hi Joyful, Sure liked those photos! The one of the cross just above the leaf in the tree is pretty amazing. I like the views up there in your part of that beautiful country. Did you happen to notice that there also looks to be a cross up just above the mountain at the center of your first photo? It may be an optical thing in the lens of the camera ... it's very light ... but it is cool. I also like your quote on Happiness. That is so true. I sure appreciated your taking the time to give me a really nice comment on my blog about the old brochure and how well it turned out on your screen. Thank you! I hope you have a fine weekend up there. Take care. I will look forward to your next post on SNAP THAT. John

  13. Such beautiful pics of your wonderful view Joyful, and I would think the lit up church steeple would be such a wonderful sight, and comfort, at night time! Thank you! Hugs, Joy xo

  14. Hi Joyful! Three and a half days of snow? Oh my gosh, that's crazy? How much did you get all together?

    The photos you took look wonderful though. The mountains look so pretty with the snow on them. I didn't see the church cross at first, I was looking at the cross made by the sticks in the right corner. But then I saw it peeking out. I love church spires. I think of all the people who have gazed on them through the years and have been inspired.

    I hope your weather gets better soon. Happy weekend my friend :)
