Winter Patchwork

Yesterday Mom and I went on a road trip even though it was only about 19 degrees out. 

Sometimes you just have to get out of the house. 

So off course we meandered over through Big Valley and crossed Jacks Mountain so we could go to the Walmart in the valley on the other side.

We stopped at the top of Jacks Mountain to take in the vista. I bout froze my ears and fingers off. 😊

We went on down the mountain and found this beauty at the bottom.

Wow! Gorgeous pictures. Glad you and your Mom enjoyed getting out and about. We are a little stir crazy after a weekend of snow and cold temps, too! The barn and reflection is magical. Have a great week.

I really like all of these--- but especially that last one! Beautiful!

That is a really big valley. Love the red barns. I don't know what it is about red barns that seems to make them look so much more sophisticated. Carol

WOW, talk about a view from the top of the world...pretty darn nice! It was so cold here (single digits) I didn't take a single photo today. Thanks Felicia for sharing a bit of your world this week. Stop back when you can.

Oh, Felicia, I love the zoomed in views....not that I don't like the other. And love what you found at the bottom.

WOW, so stunning. The images you captured were worth the cold fingers and ears. I love the patchwork quilt of the landscape. And that farm, all aglow in ice. I am just loving this post.

I always love trekking to a high point and taking in the views of the surrounding countryside. Love the patchwork quilt landscape where you live. And I like your new header photo too!
Such beauty to behold! Glad you took the freezing trek and shared what you saw with us!

Those barns are just stunning!
Beautiful photos - it would be great to see the same shots in the spring. And what a fabulous red farm!!!!
Amy Franks said…
That's scenery we don't get here, wonder what 19 degrees F is in celsius
Bob Bushell said…
Fabulous lens you have, you take the most pleasant all around you. I love your shooting.
Rajesh said…
Beautiful. Interesting winter shots.
Valerie said…
A great series of images Felicia. I trust that you too feel it was worth the physical discomfort to get such good results and the appreciation of those you share with! Thank you for braving the cold. While you may be tempted to "hibernate", so too are many of us here in the southern hemisphere experiencing temperatures around 40 degrees celcius with an "overnight low" of 34C at 7:30am !!!
Love your photography.

Hello, I love the beautiful views and lovely images. The last barn and pond scene is fabulous! A bit too cold for me. Enjoy your day!
Brian King said…
Oh, wow, those are spectacular! Beautiful scenery and barns!

Extraordinair images Felicia, I love the way the valley is so clearly defined here. I'm curious to know what crops are grown in the fields below?
It's beautiful Felicia -- but oh my gosh it looks SO cold. You and your mom are brave to venture out... but on the other hand, you'd have to go to the grocery store and/or walmart once in a while.
Linda said…
Interesting patchwork! And I love the reflections.
Ela said…
These views are so beautiful !!
Thanks for sharing your photos !!

I think Patchwork is a perfect name for this place. The hint of snow makes it really stand out. Love this :) Thanks for sharing.

lovely photos. I like the "strata" appearance of the first few photos - well done - now go put your feet up and sip some hot cocoa!
Beautiful country,compositions and colours....
Lovely photos!

The patchworks are beautiful. Love the last photo of the barn and its reflection in the lake. By the way, I love the header of your blog.
