Winter in Alabama


It seems that when winter rolls around I go into hibernation mode. I hate being cold. I just don’t see how some of you survive in some of the places that you do. Winter in Alabama is warm one day, cloudy the next, and then it raining the next just before it turns cold. Then the next week, it replays in reverse.




Cindy and I kid about the twelve days of winter. We should start saying the twelve sunny day of winter.



Sometimes I wonder if we will ever see the sun again. When there is a day that is pretty, it seems that many times it comes in the middle of week when I at work.


 This particular day, the sun came out during a day when I was home. It was actually a beautiful day.  So I went out to take a few early winter pictures.


After I processed these, Cindy says, these don’t look like winter pictures.


I just said, Babe, that’s just winter in Alabama.

    Happy New Year Phillip. I agree with you…I hate the cold and its been a rough winter so far in Toronto. Lovely images you’ve captured here.

      Thank you Edith, and I hope that you and your family will have a Happy New Year too. I guess that you don’t get use to cold. I can’t imagine what it is like in Toronto. Here in sunny Birmingham tonight low is 5. I would count this as one of our twelve days of winter!

    These are all beautiful, Phillip, and my personal favourite is the one of the forest path by the creek.

      Thank you Andrew. That is one of mine favorite areas to walk. It is so peaceful.

    I love cold winters with lots of snow. So much fun you can do then, and so many great photo opportunities. It’s all a matter of using the right clothes. And, yes, getting used to it as well I think. Wonderful photos, Phillip.

      So Otto you are one of those people who enjoys the winter. I’ve heard that they exist, but never met one. 🙂 I’m just kidding. Thankfully, we don’t get very much snow. It might only snow once or twice ever three to five years, and I’m just fine with that.
