Fabulous first

"A mountain keeps an echo deep inside. That's how I hold your voice."

~ Rumi

Another year unfurls. A beautiful first of January at Stevens Pass. A winter wonderland. The Cascades, proud and mighty, at their wintry best. Their manly ruggedness mellowed by the familiar powdery white embrace. The evergreens, how very ironically, draped in a determined spread of ever-white. A feeble winter sun trying its best to brighten one and all. A hint of blue sky here, a glimmer of green bough there. The bald ski slopes decked with a chiffon fog. Not a speck of colour as far as the eye can see. An old world of black and white. But engirdled with magic alright.

A day like no other for the mountain lover. A freaking, fabulous first.


  1. Beautiful.
    Words, image - I love it all.

  2. I don’t go skiing and I am not used to snowy mountains. I must say that I am speechless. How beautiful! You’ve managed to capture the wilderness and the beauty.

  3. Freaking fabulous indeed. Positively breathtaking.

  4. Absolutely stunning. I came to you via Pondside (one of my favourite people) and love your pictures. My world is very different. We live up high (for us)on a Welsh hillside - no snow yet, much green and wind and quite a lot of mud especially round the hen houses!

  5. Pondside, thank you so much dear! You are too, too kind.

    Celine, merci beaucoup! I don't go skiing either, I just love to the capture the mountains in winter and leave the sports to the husband!

    P.K, many thanks!
