Your wonderful pictures remind me of that great Thoreau quote: In wildness is the preservation of the world.

Beautiful scenery. The passage from the book is pretty awesome, too, and perfectly paired with these photos.

Snow and open water provides quite a contrast.

Gorgeous frozen shots.

Andrea said...

Yes these scenes are so beautiful, more so because they are alien to me. We don't have snow and my few travels to temperate countries always coincide with spring!

Linda said...

Love the photos, but glad we don't have that kind of weather here! I am definitely a sunshine gal! Happy New Year to you!
