Color on a Snowy Day

Yesterday was one of the snowiest days we've had in a while. We ended up with about 10" of fresh, soft fluffy snow. While I'm not really happy about it, I have to admit that it's very beautiful. I ventured out to take a picture of some frozen cranberries in my yard.

In the midst of the colorlessness of an Alaskan winter, I struggle to find some bright spots. (see this post). I didn't have to go very far. Our property is full of high bush cranberries in summer. These red goodies that have escaped the birds' attacks, remain in small bunches throughout the winter, growing just a bit paler in color.

They offer just what I'm looking for on a very white day.

While I feel badly about your seemingly endless winter, ;) I can appreciate the beauty of those small bursts of colour!

I still find such beauty in the starkness, but by March, I am ready to see spring. What a great photo though!

That's lovely... we never see that kind of striking starkness during our winters in California.... it's actually our greenest time of the year!

I have to say, who would have guessed this could happen! Wonderful!
