Winter's Back...

Well... winter is back here in Western Nebraska. I knew the lovely mild weather we were enjoying was not going to last forever. Besides, caving season is fast approaching here at the Open A Bar 2 Ranch and that usually means merciless blizzards that come and try to take our sweet little calves from us.

In a weird way, I actually love winter. Friday morning was one of the reasons why I love winter. It was not too cold, it had snowed during the night, the wind wasn't blowing and there was an eerie fog looming in the air. I love how quite it is when all of the world seems frozen in place. The fog made my world seem very small and very intimate. That is a very comforting feeling for me. I love walking about and taking pictures of God's glorious creation on days like these.

I also have been experimenting with a photo editing program. Some of these below have been jazzed up and some where not.

I hope you enjoy the peacefulness of the morning that I experienced. I think some of the pictures really caught that feeling.

I started out by taking pictures of the calves. The fog was so dense that I could only see a few hundred feet ahead of me.

I love this one!
You'd better click on it or else I'm going to have to hurt you!

So cute how they get a little snow ring around their noses as they graze in the snow!

They are so curious, that as I get closer to them, they can't stand it and have to get closer to me to see what I am doing out there. Either that or they all want to be blog stars!

Sure glad I have this nice warm coat!

Curious three.

Also love this one!
The calf on the left has a heart shaped snow ring.
Too cute...

Are you thinking of a cute name for me?

After I got tired of the calves and they got tired of me, I went into the back yard. My faithful sidekick, Sammy, decided to join me. She loves going for walks with me, as long as I blaze the trial through the snow!

Sam I am, I am Sam!

I'm telling you, you've got to click on the picture!

Oh la, la...
I think my sissy will like this one!
What do you think sissy?

Nice, I like this one!

Beautiful Sammy

By this time little Sammy was ready to go back inside and have a cup of hot cocoa!
She's giving me the look that said, "Are you done yet?"

Yes Sammy dear, we can go in now...

The End
