Hi Sue finally had time to look at your links thanks for sharing
Stunning ice palaces underground
The best 25 photos posted on the weather network website in the last week. Some stunning photos are here. It's a short video of the photos.
Thank you Sue and June.
What is a sea cave on Lake Superior? Go to the link to see some amazing photos of the caves in winter. Some stunning photos here.
These 2 short videos are about winter for sure and what some Canadians do with all that snow that has fallen and continues to fall this year. Here is the amazing snowbank that I posted about before when it was a baby at only 11 feet high. It is now 13 feet and still growing and also has a new purpose in life.
What do artists do when they are given lots of free snow, they sculpt it of course.
Hope this should go here. Can you guess what these pictures are of? I guessed wrong.
Thank you June and Mary. Very beautiful.
The Animals of Winter
Some animals look their loveliest in the white of winter. They put on their winter coat, play in the snow and disappear from they eye if you don't know where to look. Fortunately for us, this photographer knew exactly where to look to get those dazzling shots of beautiful winter animals for us to enjoy and share.
Wendy...tried to vote but all I get is a blank page?
Really loved looking at these photos, so beautiful, fragile, , which is why I chose this thread to post what I am about to add, because without these little creatures, none of this would exist, without them we have 5 years, all of us, yet big business thinks it's fine to assist in their demise, well here is where you can get a little retribution with a simple click to vote, and we can carry on posting pictures of our beatiful fragile world , thanks x wendy k x & kelly cats xxxxx >>>>

All these pictures are beautiful. Thank you ladies.
There's Santa's reindeer! That's a beautiful pic, Mary. They look so perfect, as if they are posing. Gorgeous, majestic animals!
The Pandas are a riot, June. They are perfectly dressed for the occasion!
Here are a few pics that Sue gave us, showing what the winter storm left behind in Ontario. They are really pretty unless you have to go out and drive or walk on ice, or your hydro and electricity if off as it was for many thousands of people:
beautiful tigers Cheryl they always look at home in the snow to me good morning Sue
Sue, those designs that fellow makes in the snow are incredible! They are absolutely beautiful. He's a talented artist to think them up let alone be able to do them!
Mary, that bear looks like he's in heaven! lol It's great to see this fellow wearing his own fur and enjoying himself thoroughly!
Thanks you two!
I hope it is OK to put this link here, mother nature did send the snow to allow Simon to make the most beautiful mural designs in the snow...
Moose come in all flavours, both milk and white chocolate!
Beautiful - thanks June!
lovely thread have enjoyed reading the posts while sat with a cuppa
Mary, that's a beauty! I'm going to give him or her a friend!
(Please keep pics about 500 x 500) Thanks! Snowy animals would be fun to include.
Cheryl, that village looks lovely and reminds me of pictures I saw as a child of houses in the Alps I think. The roofs are that shape because of all the snow that falls during winter. But for the life of me I cannot remember which country it is. Oh the joys of growing up!
Coralie, loved the journey through the canyons, what an amazing place. Isabel, beautiful butterfly, sadly I have not seen even 1 this year, we usually have 1,000's of monarchs fluttering around but they are few and far between, it seems to be a really harsh year for them. Mary, beautiful waterfall, maybe that is where crossing the magical bridge will take us?
Thanks for posting all the wonderful pictures and videos ladies. This is a very relaxing thread.
Wow, thank you Mary, Coralie, and Sue! And thank you and WELCOME ISABEL! Nice to have you join us.
Coralie, I felt like I was floating on a different planet during that journey. I love the starry night skies that remind me of my childhood and my dad's telescope.
I don't know where this village is in the world, but it looks like the most peaceful place to live and I want to go there!
Stunning photos of the Northern Lights taken in beautiful British Columbia.
i agree Cheryl and Sue what a gorgeous bridge Coralie this is a very relaxing thread
Wow, Sue - I had exactly the same thought when I saw that picture! (Great minds.....) It looks like a quiet place where I'd love to sit and listen to the birds, and just think... or maybe just not think at all - just meditate.
Coralie - I played that link "Colors" again and enjoyed it just as much as the first time I saw it. We certainly are blessed to have our sight. Thanks Coralie. Wonderful pics!
I wonder what amazing place crossing that brige would take me to. Really would love to walk over and find out. Thanks for posting the photo.
OH CORALIE... that is so gorgeous!!! Thank you. One can't help but smile when looking at these amazing pictures.
We must bring this thread back to life. It's so relaxing to scroll through.
Oh wow, thank you Coralie! That was just beautiful! I just want to point out that when anyone has sat and enjoyed this marvelous scenery, you've had meditation time! It's just what we need to do every day. What am I grateful for today? Eyes to see the beauty of nature all around me.
I took a screenshot of one of the pictures:
I love Fall too, Dusty. It's my second favourite. I love the wind in the trees and the leaves falling. As a kid I remember us playing in them, so I love to see other kids doing the same. There's a nip in the air, which is really nice after a hot summer. Everything feels as though it's getting ready for something! The beauty is breath-taking.
I, too, love spring with the new growth from Mother Nature....the little critters coming forth to test their legs and wings......but I must say that fall still holds a special appeal for me......maybe from my traditional beliefs.........I love the crisp smelling air and changing colours.
Spring is my favourite time of the year. I can hardly wait!
Beautiful poem, Dusty. I don't know what it's like for those who do not experience four seasons (they may just be used to two or three and love them) but I would sure miss winter with its snowy days of splendor. There's something about watching a snowfall (when you don't have to drive in it) that gives one a calm and peaceful feeling. It feels like the whole world is being washed and cleaned.
Since I found this picture a number of years ago, I felt that it's a place I could live in all year around. Perhaps it's a combination of our Canadian winters and that which was born in my soul and meant for me to experience. There is a delicious solitude and yet, life all around. I truly believe that if there wasn't electricity to give it the warmth in the picture, I would be happy with the warmth of a fireplace, wood stove, and candle-light. HONEST!
Miracles of Nature
Have you ever tried
The miraculous powers of nature
Of hot springs waters
That awaits you?
The healing waters of
The Mother's Earth are
Here for you to be discovered.
In a the setting of your eye's
Where a ring of
Touch the sky
And beneath them
A shimmering brook
Makes its way through
The heavenly forest,
While a mountain breeze
Caries the symphony of birds.
And you are sitting On the rock,
Watching the silverfish brook
And listening to
It's healing sound.
Somewhere far away-
There is your get away
To the serene
Miracles of Nature.
