Okay, so not really wordless.
We moved over the weekend (more on that later), both us and the horses. The snow from over a week ago never melted and over the weekend we had freezing rain...on Monday Charles and I took the mares for a spin around the new barn, and it was like we had landed on another planet.
|The snow was covered in ice, which looked like frozen sea foam on the sides of the road.|
Do you see what I see?
|Charles on G-Mare.|
Note the subtle reflection of the trees on the snow/ice
|Do you see the similarity?|
|Gravel road to infinity.|
The edges of ice and snow in the road photo above reminded me of this.
|Compare to the background in the photo of Lily and me above|
|It doesn't take a huge leap of the imagination to imagine the ice as foam on the waves rolling into shore.|
|The farm yard, coated in glittery, sparkling ice|
|An ocean of wintry whiteness|
A real ocean
I have never seen anything remind me so much of the island as the Mid-Atlantic during the summer. I don't miss the ocean as much as I normally would because so much of winter reminds me of the sea. It forever boggles my mind how our brains can be tricked by perception.
I bet you never look at snow and ice the same way again! ;)
