Half Dome, Apple Orchard, Yosemite, California, April 1933 

I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season. However, I caution you to stay Risky. Life is better that way.

What are your plans for the holidays? Me? I have a book due. I will be writing.

Beautiful. I miss the winter weather I grew up with in the north. The beauty of it cannot be matched.

I hope your Holiday Season is wonderful.

Wow. Ansel Adams was an amazing photographer, wasn’t he?

Thanks for sharing the beauty of winter while we are all just rushing around (except me. I have a cold. poor poor me!)

I will NOT be writing–I will wish I were, since I will be at my in-laws; house.

The serenity in that picture is appealing, even though I dislike cold and snow.
I’ll be writing as well, Carolyn. Sometimes, when I come back from 1811 or whenever, it feels as if I’ve been away on holiday – that’s on the good days.

Happy Christmas – you’ll surely have time for a bit of mid-winter festivity.

Thanks for the lovely holiday wishes and for sharing your plans, writing or not.

I was surprised there are Ansel Adam’s photos in the public domain and so easily available on Flickr, too. I suppose I should have known since in the 1930’s many soon-to-be-famous artists were hired to do government work….
