River Beauty

Winter ducks

For us, this is the silent still time of year.  We go out in the woods on our snowshoes, and usually all that is moving is shifted by the wind–branches and mists of snow.  But every so often, we come upon running water, pure shining black.  This time, we were startled by a flock of ducks that were paddling in the open water.  We startled them as well.  They squawked and flapped indignantly away.

    I love all that busyness of trees and branches in the background, the whiteness of the snow against the black water is nicely balanced.

    I’d rather live in a coloured environment, I thought Daffy was the only Black Duck.

    Even though it looks rather cold it is luring you to follow the little stream.

    Beautiful! Love the ribbon of water rippling through the snow.

    What a beautiful winter’s day to be outdoors, I can imagine the perfect quietness surrounded by the cold air.
