Snow Fence

Beach and Lake Michigan Beyond

Beach and Lake Michigan Beyond

The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination.  ~Ward Elliot Hour

This quotation is so true. When I look out from my window, I mostly see my neighborhood dressed in winter’s white, and rather a worn white it is this far into the season. I find I turn inward and let my imagination soar.  I imagine beyond what I can see, and take myself on many pleasant trips as I write.

Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I’d love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you.

  1. Love the colors in this..the horizontal layers. Wonderful composition!!!

  2. I love the lines in your photo. You also found some nice colors.

  3. I like the photo, especially the lines and bright colors of the fence. On the mountains passes here we have huge snow fences to keep the snow from drifting over the highways. Is this for the same purpose?

    Yep, the wind blows off Lake Michigan, can cause huge drifts that interfere with local roads a hundred feet inland.
