Jumble Ice Along the Allegheny River

I ventured out to the Allegheny Riverfront yesterday morning in Pittsburgh out of curiosity.  The ice that had so recently covered the river had broken up in large sheets and heaved up over the banks, and in this case, the sidewalk.  It's hard to get a sense of how large the pieces were, but they could have easily covered me.

Fallen Log Lit By Sun

I love looking for photos on walks because things always look different according to the season or the weather or the time of day.  I have passed by this fallen tree before but I had never really noticed it before.  But with the light shining through the fog behind it, it really stood out and I could really appreciate its form.

Light Shining Through a Leaf

I spotted this leaf on my winter walk at Beechwood Farms.  It was caught some bare branches, and the sun shone right through the little holes.

Sit a Spell

Beechwood Farms looks so beautiful in the morning fog.

Foggy Morning at the Pond

Hi y'all!  I know I've been on a bit of a hiatus, but I'm back.  I hope everyone's new year is off to a great start.  I wanted to share some photos I took at the end of last year, starting with this one.  My husband was a dear and woke me early for the gorgeous fog that was blanketing my neck of the woods.  I drove over to Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve and snapped this view of the little pond there.

Full Moon

I can't say the latest supermoon looked any larger to my eye than normal, but it sure was beautiful.

Saxonburg Christmas Parade

Friday night we went up to Saxonburg to eat Thanksgiving leftovers with the family.  After, we walked down to Main Street for the Christmas parade.  It was a small town event, just like I remembered from childhood, except that it was after dark!  The band's instruments were glowing.  The dance team had lit Christmas wreaths as props.  Every float, bus and fire truck was decked out with lights.  It was a beautiful way to kick off our holiday season.
