Not Spring Yet

Yesterday I was remarking how I’d heard birds and there was sunlight on my living room floor  and it was staying light so much longer.

There’s a muddy feel in the air, impending Spring. A scent. A feel. Signs of the changing season – oops. The supposed rain shower today wasn’t rain at all but blustery icy sleety snow, blowing around wildly and the thermometer said NO WAY but yes, it was wintry white and howling and my optimism the winter coming to a close, vanished. Just like that!

Spring’s coming though   It always does. I know it. You wish it would hurry.

Cloudy cold with blowing sleety snow.

Becky B’s Square Light Challenge continues to inspire January’s photographs.

A bit of fog added to the mood on the swollen river, seeping over the wall.

Christmas Lights, Candlelight, and Moonlight

Taking up Becky’s January Square Challenge of LIGHT. 

Not my house, but it is so inviting and the candles are flickering along the sidewalk.

And yes, that is the moon up at the top of the photo.

The temperature dropped to 32 and the lights shine in the darkness, making winter beautiful.

Becky says (via Cee’s Photography post of a lighthouse at Twilight)

I’m proposing our January squares are filled with words ending in light that means one or more of the following; sunlight, floodlights, firelight, skylights, candlelight, sidelights, starlight, footlights, moonlight, streetlights, torchlight, taillights, gaslight, headlights, or, as I have today, twilight – whether that be the astronomical, nautical or civil twilight. And feel free to find your own _____light, there are more than 50 words which end in light!
