And Now Snow!


The first snowfall of the year in my neck of the woods! Even though it is only in the 40's, I just had to go outside and take photographs of the snow landscape surrounding me. I originally took the pictures in color, and then converted them to black and white. Here is a little white house in my neighborhood. Isn't it pretty among all the snow-covered trees?


A lone branch of a tree that fell in a field now covered with a few inches of snow.


A close-up view of trees that have lost their leaves and now are covered with snow.


A branch from a juniper bush covered with icicles.


Pine cones and leaves on the ground have touches of snow and ice.


Children playing in the snow. Do you think they will be able to get the little car unstuck and back on the road? I hope you enjoy my white wonderland!

  8. Love your winter wonderland - but I am one of the few who look forward to winter.

    Love the sculptural (and 'line') effects of your images of the trees.

  10. Drooping trees are sure gravity in play especially with ice on them. Love the shot of fir tree with ice.

  15. I assume you are in the path of the Noreaster and for that I am sorry ... but like you, I love the beauty of snow and it can move me away from the feelings of cold. Your pictures are a tribute to nature and full of lines, by the way :) Very nice choice ...

  22. We do not get snow where I live (thank goodness) but if we did, I'd go with black and white too as it really works with snow. Your thumbnail on Top Shot caught my eye and I just had to come over and investigate. Well done!
