Back from the Land of Ice & Snow: Sky Watch Friday

Crap, it's 2010. When did that happen?

We must have missed that on our marathon holiday trip that started on Christmas Eve. Drive to Akron, stay with parents & brother, Fly to Maine through Detroit, stay with parents, siblings, & grandparents (12 people in all!) fly back to Akron via Detroit, stay with parents and brother. Drive back home. Finally, yes, I am back home, and it feels wonderful. Happy New Year.


And since I just realized it's Friday, and It's been months since I participated in the ultimate nature blog meme for everyone, "Sky Watch", and this picture works for that, happy Sky Watch!


  1. I can't believe it's the start of another new year either, and I don't even have your massive travel as an excuse. :) Love your photo... the sun reflecting off the snow is a sight I never get tired of. Happy New Year!

  2. Hmmm...a New Year and I didn't see the sun yet!
    Happy New Year Tom!

  3. Awesome shot Tom! Happy New Year!


  4. The colors of sunlight on snow are so magical.
    Happy 2010!

  5. Beautiful photo even if it makes me shiver from the cold :) Happy New Year. We enjoy your tweets (and sorry you left your book behind in Maine.)

  6. A very bold winter sun, great capture!

    Your napping Santa is so utterly sweet,
    what a wonderful image you managed to photograph!

    Happy New Year! :-)

  7. Ugh! So much traveling. I just don't have that kind of energy anymore!
    Absolutely stellar photo, Tom. Perfect compliment between the slanted, orange light & the blues of the snow, the warm & the cold. You're the Master!

  8. Beautiful Tom, happy new year.

  9. Beautiful picture. Nice to see the sun again :))

  10. So lovely picture...I really wonder why the snows color is white but when we take a photograph from it, it came out blue. Thanks for sharing Happy New year!
