It may have been rain, sleet, and only a dusting of snow, but it sure was 'purdy.'

Snow falling on magnolias...

...in Seminary Wood, of Legacy Park, in the city of Decatur, Georgia, USA. 16 January 2022.

Pic(k) of the Week: Glenn Creek Falls

Glenn Creek Falls (04)

A waterfall —or is it a riffle?— cascades on Glenn Creek (a tributary of Peachtree Creek) within several acres of ravined woodland belonging to Decatur Cemetery, in the city of Decatur, Georgia, USA. Photo taken on 07 January 2022.

Decatur Cemetery is the oldest burial ground in the Atlanta, Georgia-metropolitan area. Officially created by the Decatur government in 1832, the cemetary is believed to have been in use even before then. In 1997, it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Pic(k) of the Week: Wild Heaven Beer at night

Wild Heaven Craft Beers Brewery

Visiting Wild Heaven Beer, a production brewery in Avondale Estates, Georgia, USA (a suburb of Atlanta), on 25 February 2016.

The brewery specializes in beers "inspired by the traditions of Europe and the innovation of America" and barrel-aged beers, the latter of which can be seen through the taproom window.

Since this photo was taken, the state of Georgia has amended its alcohol laws to allow on-the-premises sales at breweries (the permission existed before but in pretzel-twisted form) and Wild Heaven has added a second location, in Atlanta's up-and-coming West End neighborhood.

(Bonus) Pic(k) of the Week: A year's sunset

Blue Mt. Sunset (04)

It was a winter's sunset at Blue Mountain Brewery, in Nelson County, Virginia, USA, in 2010. No artifice; no 'fancy' camera.' Just point and shoot. Nature did the rest.

When the sun rises tomorrow morning, for the first time in 2022, I'll wish for fewer "unprecedented times" for all.

Thank you for reading.
