Today, we’re sharing some photos of our Maine winter. Hope you will join us and share some of your own.
Sandra Neily: adding Moosehead Lake freeze up, cove at dawn, and well, the dog says it all.
Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson: The view from the ski slope at Saddleback Mountain.
Kate Flora: Tree at DiMillo’s where we always have our family holiday lunch. Until this years. Lights at the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden’s Gardens Aglow.
Maureen Milliken: Even though it gets so dark, so early, I love the light this time of year. The Pownalborough Courthouse, in Dresden, and the Belgrade Lakes gazebo were both shot the same time of day in early December — around 3:30 right as the sun was going down.
And, at the bottom, the western Mountains of Franklin County as seen from the Center Hill Entrance to Mount Blue State Park, in Weld, a nice bright noontime shot.
John Clark enjoying the abundance of birds right outside our sliding glass door-cardinals, titmice, grosbeaks, jays, sparrows, chickadees, mourning doves, nuthatches, wrens and a few courageous gray squirrels entertain us daily.
Feeder gets filled daily.
Maggie Robinson: I have been nowhere to see the wonders of nature. Usually, I can’t even see the wonder of my own backyard at this time of year without slipping on ice or stumbling through snow. But we seem to be in November mode at the moment. All the rain has washed away the snow and I can go out and holler to the dog to come in from the three grim brown levels of our garden without falling down. Can’t wait for spring to come!
Susan Vaughan: I took these photos on a recent December morning from my kitchen window. This pair of foxes played in the snow for at least 30 minutes–boxing, chasing each other, pouncing, rolling around. A magical winter gift.
