Morning, after snow . . .

Just before dawn this morning. I love the soft blues and the way the thick snow clings to the evergreens. Looking due West, it’s hard to remember I live in a city, overlooking a main street. In summer, it’s so noisy we can’t sit on the balcony and visit. Sometimes we can’t sleep until midnight, the traffic is so loud. I’ve been in this building over four years and am still not used to the noise. Spending most of your life in undeveloped country does that to you . . .
But winter mornings here can be very beautiful, as you can see.
And now the dawn is coming . . .
