wordless wednesday – icy morning edition

by Kristina Sloggett

in photography, Portland, yard & garden

Just as the holidays appear everywhere the day after Halloween, winter weather has definitely arrived in Portland.

It was icy cold this morning.

Basil cut our walk short – even in his coat.

I can never do a wordless Wednesday without words

Keep warm!

I do love this time of year. I know it seems kind of sad and somber, but I fine the frosty surfaces to be so peaceful…I know, I’m weird. Now, stay warm! I have two coats on right now and I’m sitting inside (Tony’s hot natured and I’m cold natured)…I have a feeling this is going to be a cold winter!

I love it too… it is peaceful – I love to bundle up, build a fire, be cozy… and I love when it snows!

Those leaves hardly look real! Almost looks like peach fuzz on them. Gorgeous :)


4 Heather (Where's the Beach) November 2, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Brrrrr….. but what incredible photos!! Simply spectacular.

Winter has arrived! It actually is nice here this week, but that will change fast!!!

Happy Wednesday love! xo

I love your Worded Wednesday! And those leaf pictures are frame-worthy, gorgeous!!! I’m dyyyyying to get a better camera so I can take gorgeous photos like yours, but it’s just not in the budget right now!


11 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 8:04 pm

ha – I was about to change the title to that 😉


12 Lisa B November 2, 2011 at 3:23 pm

It was like this in NY this morning too…but then it got up to 63 today!
Love the pics :)


13 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga November 2, 2011 at 3:27 pm

14 (what runs) Lori November 2, 2011 at 4:02 pm

That’s pretty cool! Those pictures are incredible.

And odd… it’s like 75 to 80 degrees in Northern California…


15 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 8:03 pm

so bizarre how things are different SO close?


16 Dorry November 2, 2011 at 4:42 pm

beautiful. there’s a cold front blowing in AS I TYPE THIS. It’s supposed to dip into the 30s here tomorrow which is CRAZY since it was in the 80s yesterday or the day before… I think I’m ready to bundle up!


17 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I know, we had a short summer, but I’m kinda ready for COLD and cozy! :)


18 Haley @ Health Freak College Girl November 2, 2011 at 7:14 pm

woah! that leaf looks so fake!


19 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 7:57 pm

ha – which one? they’re all real! 😉 frozen, but real…


20 Angela @ PattycakesnPancakes November 2, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Those pictures are beautiful. I’ve never seen snow…Im a Floridian. :-p
But I just love the icy leaves.


21 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 7:44 pm

that is so crazy to me! :) my dad grew up in Hawaii, so he’d never seen snow until later in life either.


22 Joyce Cherrier November 2, 2011 at 7:23 pm

You are such a fantastic photographer. Just beautiful.


23 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 7:42 pm

thank you SO much, Joyce! <3 I really like the outdoor subjects.


24 Lou November 2, 2011 at 7:43 pm

so pretty! Complete opposite to where I am – sweaty and humid (sexy) :)


25 Molly@hungryhungryrunner.com November 2, 2011 at 8:17 pm

Beautiful pictures!!! It’s still pretty warm in Chicago – and I’m hoping it stays that way, at least through November!


26 Krystina (Organically Me) November 2, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Oh wow, those leaves are so beautiful.


27 spabettie November 2, 2011 at 9:50 pm

thank you, Krystina! looking forward to going out again tomorrow morning to see what I can find…


28 Kiran @ KiranTarun.com November 2, 2011 at 11:35 pm

Beautiful photos – what camera and lens are you using? I am in the market for something interest :)


29 spabettie November 3, 2011 at 8:43 am

my camera is the Nikon D300 and this was the 50mm lens. exciting to be looking for a new camera – my biggest suggestion to you is to find a camera shop and go play with different models! 😀


30 Nichole November 3, 2011 at 3:21 am

OOOH Basil in the coat!! I can’t get over the frost, but it’s really pretty.

“can’t do wordless wed without words” – lol

Stay warm mama!


31 spabettie November 3, 2011 at 8:41 am

Basil loves his coat. 😉 we are staying warm – big socks and sitting by the heater… getting a cord of firewood soon!


32 Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit November 3, 2011 at 5:16 am

Oh wow, so beautiful! It hasn’t got that cold here yet… but it’s supposed to snow tomorrow… dun dun dunh


33 spabettie November 3, 2011 at 8:39 am

oooh – I can’t wait for that here! 😀


34 Holly @ The Runny Egg November 3, 2011 at 6:17 am

Those leaves are just gorgeous! It was 30 degrees when I got in my car this morning to get to work so I know winter is definitely on the way. I love everything about winter except for driving in the snow!


35 spabettie November 3, 2011 at 8:39 am

I don’t mind driving in snow (I have a fun 4WD) it’s the ice and other drivers that scare me… 😉


36 Felicia (Natural + Balanced) November 3, 2011 at 6:24 am

beautiful pictures!!


37 spabettie November 3, 2011 at 8:38 am

thank you, Felicia!

40 Kristy Lynn @ Gastronomical Sovereignty November 3, 2011 at 8:48 am

It’s been cold here on Vancouver Island too. I got off work last night at about 10pm and all the wet ground was icing over!…..

…..that being said, it means Christmas is on it’s way and I looooooove Christmas!


41 Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) November 10, 2011 at 6:44 pm

THose are so beautiful they don’t even look real!!! Gorgeous! (I used to add words to wordless wed. posts too- they are “less words”, right?)


42 spabettie November 10, 2011 at 6:49 pm
