Sparkling snow

Stunning this morning in the first light of day … Took some photos, and will take some more, but coffee and fire first. Bright sunshine, but quite cold. The whole coast is clear and sparkling! Gorgeous day to wake up in Big Sur – actually, there are no bad days to wake up here!

Those are photos I took just after the sun came up, before coffee and fire. I have a couple others, taken AFTER coffee #1 and starting my fire for the day. The deck and road are still covered, so I can’t drive, or walk outside much, without fear of slipping – not something I’m anxious to do, even for really good photo ops!

Here are a few I took after coffee.

That’s my live Xmas tree. Looks right at home, doesn’t it?

Think I’m going to have to clean off my solar panels, on my solar generator, if I want to recharge today.;-)

    I so enjoy your mission to connect us to Big Sur happenings, and thanks for the pics. Enjoy the magic of a rare snowy day in Big Sur.
    I would be honored if you would review my book, Love song of a Flower child”. It’s on Amazon.

  3. Your photography is beautiful. Your environment takes my breath away! Love that light shining on the mountaintop contrasted with the shadows in the foreground!

  4. Man you got hit! And the car’s washed! What a day, gorgeous landscape from your mountaintop, thanks Kate.

  5. Did it snow clear down to the coast, or are you at a higher altitude?

  6. :)

  7. I am at 3250′ it did not snow all the way down the coast, but it has only a few years ago. That was rare.
