December in Ohio.

December 24, 2011

December brings the end of the calendar year and heralds the winter season.  The snow and the cold, off to a slow start, will be around soon.  Late autumn’s earth tones flow into winter’s starker landscape, though a bit of the warmer season lingers on here and there.  But there is this to look forward to- the days will slowly get longer, and spring will eventually dawn.


Happy holidays everyone!

    Great shots! It looks about the same there as it does here, but we’re actually getting some snow tonight, more than forecast. If you would like some, I’ll see what I can do about sending you some.

    I enjoy winter for just these reasons – these beautiful surprises in “winter’s starker landscape.” Gorgeous photos!

    Hi. Oh, I like the ice crystals and the moon. The ice sheet in the grass is nice too… there is a unique sound associated with breaking that delicate ice that emerges from your photo… Jane

    Winter is not my favorite season but you’ve captured the beauty that it has to give us. Beautiful photos and I love the moon shot and actually all of them are wonderful. Thanks so much and Happy Holidays to you and yours. Always look forward to your bird photos and hopefully the New Year will bring them your way.

    A great selection of pictures. There’s more colour about than you would think, if like you, you know how to look.

    It felt like looking to one of my Christmas Winter Dreams the only difference is that the beautiful landscapes are real. Thank you for sharing such inspiring photos. December in Ohio is amazing.
    Merry Christmas. Wishing you and your family the gift of love, joy and peace today and everyday.

    Such beautiful photos. A touch of frost is so pretty, I suppose that helps make up for the damage it leaves behind. Thanks for sharing the great scenery and wildlife.
