Snow has been falling and falling and falling, with the temperatures doing much the same here in the U.P., making it seem more like January, than December. From over on the eastern end, near Brimley, Brenda Leigh snapped a few photos so we can see how winter is shaping up over there.

Check out the shadows in her first shot. I can't quite figure out what the very top shadow is from, but I know the next one down and of course the shadow of that little pine tree. I'm not sure what it is, but for me, there's just something about a shadow that intrigues me. I just enjoy them in all shapes and forms.

Brenda's next photo really looks quite Christmas-y. Red holly berries with a smattering of snow clinging to them. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go…mother nature is decorating for the upcoming season, too.

In the last photo, the snow has accumulated quite high on the branches, so that tells me that there wasn't much wind the day Brenda snapped this one. When she sent it to me, she challenged me to find the polar bear in the photo. I spotted it, can you?

The top shadow looks like an old full length mirror to me, maybe it's there for the snowmen :-). I love shadows too Mary. I found the polar bear too. I love those types of observations, formations in clouds, snow, rocks, etc. There's always more to see in the photos if you keep looking. Thanks Brenda and Pasty Cam! Good night everyone.

At first I thought you all had way too much eggnog, but then I saw the bear as well.
Nice pix!

Brenda, I always enjoy 'looking' over your shoulder ~ such neat pics! Thank you.
I see the polar bear, Mary and Brenda ~ I agree with you, Eugenia, it's kinda skinny though.;>

first shadow looks like a lawn chair

By Brenda Leigh (Brownmoose) on Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 05:00 pm:

Thanks to all for the nice comments. Mary, the
shadow is of a caned chair with a high back. I JUST
THIS YEAR. Thanks to both you and Charlie for this
site. I have been neglecting to check it out daily
but will change some settings on the computer so it
comes up when I first turn on the computer. I do
miss the website and the beautiful photos and
comments from all who lurk there. STAY HEALTHY...
