Sweeping vistas of snow-covered landscapes create in most people a sense of wonder. I had hoped to capture images similar to those fellow blogger Jeffrey Foltice captured in a series of photographs at Paw Paw Park Holland Michigan, photonatureblog.com/. But alas, my small point and shoot Canon has trouble navigating exposure, contrast and f-stop, whatever that is! (Yes, I am sharing my ignorance of general photography terms.) Instead I’ve chosen to share a series of photographs that allow the viewer to experience a snowy day on a transcendental level.
After a night of falling snow the decomposing remains of vegetation that once was is now adorned with crystalline structures.
Others still hold the promise of new life.
Evergreen Bagworm (Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis), commonly known as bagworm, eastern bagworm, , is a moth that spins its cocoon in its larval life, decorating it with bits of plant material from the trees on which it feeds. The evergreen bagworm’s case grows to a length of over 6 cm, tapered and open on both ends. from: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evergreen_bagworm
And there are those still waiting to separate and spiral downward to create a bed of humus where new life will spring forth!
