Today’s photographs all speak to the blanketing beauty of fresh snow.

First, we have a tranquil snow scene sent in by Kelvin L. Woelk.

    The first is almost from a fairytale. Charly’s leaves remind me of Caine and her close-up pictures.

    I love how Mark Hesse is playing with light. Also, the windswept snow “dunes” on the ice in the last is wonderful, I sure hope to see that kind of scenery this winter (that is, I hope the Gulf of Finland will freeze this year, possibly so that is freezes first during a clear cold night and some light, dry snow will fall on the smooth ice later).
