More Dixon Meadow Preserve in the snow

You may remember the sequence of photos I showed you not long ago from this location. I have another set here. This group shows another view of the preserve from a road running at right angles to the previous one.

My husband was driving and I pointed the phone camera out the passenger side window to get these shots. I took random snaps and here is what I ended up with.

This group of photos is in the order they were taken, as the car passed along.

And this group shows you the panorama that you would see if you were standing across the road and looking at the preserve.

I think this is a nice group of pictures. Very wintry!

      Well, I would not like a winter without it, but it exacts its price. And gives its benefits, but you have to be receptive, because winter is not interested in accomodating!

        Laughing at winter’s disinterest in human comfort. Each season has its gifts and winter’s aren’t last on the list for sure. As you said …

      And you know what, in real life, it’s a very peaceful farm scene usually (in warmer weather) with cows or sheep in the field. Goes to show you how scenes can take on different personalities even day by day.

      It was such an odd day when I took these photos. Even the ordinary scenes on the road (I have a post coming up later with pictures of roads and cars) looked kind of sinister and otherwordly. I felt a bit disoriented by it. So these Dixon Meadow photos are moody in that same way, I agree, it does look like the end of the world, things going out of the normal. And our ancestors had the right idea when greeting spring with ceremonies of relief, I think. The world beginning again.
