Wednesday Walk - Lights in the snow at night - Actifit: January 5 2022
Hello friends! Here’s my Wednesday Walk post. In case you haven’t heard of it, this tag is hosted by @tattoodjay each week and you can see beautiful walks from all over the world. He also collaborates with @elizacheng, who hosts #makemesmile!
My Wednesday Walk took me round my neighborhood a bit after dark. Many people still have their holiday lights up during these dark days, and I captured some of them along with lights from gardens, porches and lamp posts, as well as a selfie under the streetlight!
In case you are not acquainted with me, I live in Minnesota where the winters are harsh and beautiful. Here in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” we get all four seasons in full living color. Stupendous rainstorms in spring, stunning flower gardens in summer, vibrant autumns, and cold white winters.
It is not always brutally cold in the winter, but we do have “cold spells” where the temperature drops down far below freezing — as low as -40 (both Fahrenheit and Celsius). I will walk outdoors under almost any conditions, but my personal limit is about -20 Fahrenheit (-28.88 Celsius). On my Wednesday walk it was therefore a rather pleasing 8 degrees Fahrenheit (-13.33 Celsius).
Of course I dress well for the weather, with a very thick coat, ski gloves, furry winter hat, snow boots and a scarf to cover my face. I also put warmers in my gloves. This is key because I have to keep taking my hands out to take pictures! And it is so nice to put them back inside where it is toast warm.
But back to the pictures in the snow! The next picture is of my garden lights surrounding a garden patch with shrubs, flowers and a small cluster of birch trees which as you can imagine all look quite different in the warm seasons!
And a few more pictures of the front of my house… including one showing some odd little tracks in the snow. I don’t know what caused them! They are on the path just below my bird feeder.
Next more holiday lights from my neighborhood.
A few more of pretty house and porch lights in the snow…
