ABC Wednesday "V" is for "vespertine"

Yes, here I go again trying to find a word that fits ABC Wednesday, but this one isn't so bad. "Vespertine" means "related to the evening" and this is exactly when I took this photo, last evening. We've had about a foot of snow, and it's still falling lightly.

Have fun and join ABC WEDNESDAY.

What an exquisite capture, Bibi! It really took my breath away! Love the tracks in the snow. Reminds me of when I lived in Montana and my kids had paper routes and had to start at about 5 in the morning and I sometimes went with them just for fun. With deep snow and it was so quiet that it was almost as though we were the only ones in the world! And we'd find ourselves whispering to one another! Lovely memories! Thank you!

Have a great day/evening/both!

Oh, that is so pretty and peaceful. It reminds me of the time my brother and I did a treasure hunt in the freshly fallen snow! Good memories and a fantastic photo.

Glad to see you are feeling well enough to go outside. It would be a shame to miss such a lovely snowfall.

A lovely, snowy, night photo! Does anyone use a snowblower there?

What a picture that is! I've never used the word vespertine so it's fun to learn more about it and to see it so vividly shown!

Jacob said...

Superb. I can see this as a cover to a mystery novel, titled "A Few Steps to Danger."

Neato!

Og, Bibi, this is beautiful. The light is simply perfect.

Marvelous but was it "raisonnable" to go out in the snow? What about your cold?

Tash said...

the photo is magical.
...and now that you've explained the word - vespers, of course.

Lovely, Bibi! BW just enhances this image!

Your silver garlic is amazing, by the way.

Hope you're feeling better by now!

Yet another lovely photo. Your pictures are always amazing.

Roger Owen Green said...

Amazing shot. Hmm - is the term "evening vespers" a bit redundant, then?

Alexa said...

This is magical, especially in b&w. Glad you're out & about finally. Must say though— you've been posting some wonderful photos while you've been house-bound. Love the silver garlic.

Haunting. Lovely.

This is very beautiful. If it weren't for the cold I would crave this kind of serenity year round. Is the light from your window? It really makes the scene and your composition "sing."
