A Walk in the Snow

Tuesday morning we woke to the sight of gently falling snow – a vision we have not seen much of this winter. It had snowed during the night, and our world was covered in a blanket of white. My first view as I stepped out of our apartment building was the branches of the trees. It looked so beautiful – almost like a fairytale.

As I walked to the subway station, I admired views I had seen before (but not this winter). This is the first proper snowfall we have had this year and I have missed seeing our environment covered in white. Grey is so dull and that is all we have seen this winter season.

As I walked down the road, I enjoyed the feel of the softly falling snow and admired the sights around me. The snow had not been dirtied yet, nor had it been turned to slush from trampling feet and moving cars.

After my train ride, I walked a little in the suburbs where the snow had been untouched by pedestrians.

I arrived early at my destination and I could not resist walking a little more before going indoors.

As always, my eye was drawn to the beauty of the snow-covered trees. I liked especially the silver birch tree in front of someone’s home.

The snow continued through the night and into Wednesday morning. I admire the beauty of a white winter but I know we will pay the price when the snowfall stops and the temperatures drop.

  1. Dear Colline, first of all, I should say, you captured so beautiful photographs, you should take more. And if I come to your question 🙂 You know, I think, I don’t like to walk in the snow… I love to watch from the window… and you made this for me, I am watching your beautiful snow photographs. If this snow would be here, everything would have been locked… no train, no bus, we don’t know how to deal with snow… but of course we don’t see snow like that too… Thank you dear, I almost been with you and enjoyed too. Love, nia

    1. That is so true Nia. We need to walk in it otherwise we can be locked in our homes for weeks and sometimes months. This year we did not have much snow but there have been years when the snowdrifts are high indeed.

  2. There’s definitely a magic to it, Colline, when it first falls. The bit of magic I really like though is when it vanishes overnight to leave a sunny next day 🙂 Thank you so much for joining me. A vicarious walk it was a pleasure to take. 🙂

  4. Your photos are lovely Colline 🙂 I would love to walk in the snow but we don’t get much opportunity here (in Perth Western Australia. I do have childhood memories of snow from England and some holidays in colder climes though we tend to avoid going away in mid winter! Best wishes Rosemary (via Jo’s Monday Walks)
