Afternoon Light

The old barn seen late on a winter afternoon: sunlight and blue skies, deep snow and long sharp shadows across everything. Since most of the structure was in shadow, there was a suggestion of the logs and weathered boards, but it was the light, the battered tin roof and the drifts of snow which held one's attention - and the intense blues everywhere we looked.

Since there were no footsteps crossing the yard, both barn and paddock seemed deserted, but Spencer and I were standing there watching, and there were deer feeding in the cedars beyond the back fence.

Today and yesterday your photos have captured for me the spirit of late winter. Although we long for Spring, it is in no hurry to leave. A lesson for us maybe, just to be and enjoy the world as it is now- silent and waiting.

Although we have snow, of course, it take some effort to go see it - a few hundred KM drive - so these pictures fascinate me. How does Spencer manage the cold? Just curious.
