Big snow, cold feet

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun

To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture

The snow-laden clouds.

Benched.jpg

The snow was up to my thighs.

My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.

Coldsky.jpg

The bench seemed a good place to

Contemplate the horizon

And enjoy the view.

  1. The snow scenes are beautiful! As a Southern girl, I’m not accustomed to that much snow; I know I would freeze to death! lol
    Have a lovely day.

  2. anche io abito molto a sud, ma sono innamorata della neve, e vado a cercarla nella mia casa delle vacanze sulle Dolomiti! quindi amo moltissimo queste visioni così candide e soffici!

  5. We are expecting first shower on Monday. Snow is magical and I love it. Though, thigh deep is not what I would like here in Jersey.

    Beautiful shots.

  6. Oh my! You DID get a lot of snow. We usually get a couple of deep snows a year, as in 20 inches per storm, and it’s always beautiful and magical looking. Our pups LOVE it!!
