I know many people hate snow. The cold, the mess. That is not me…I love snow! Seeing that pure white beauty never gets old for me. Sure, I’m not a fan when it melts (and the mess that ensues) but I love it while it lasts. :)
Believe it or not but my family saw its first big snow of the year this past Monday! And its almost March…I mean, winter is almost over!! Anyways, even though the snow was very late in coming I loved having it here. :) I got to go out and take pictures (!!) the morning after it snowed and found lots of neat icicles and picturesque things. Since I never posted last week I have a good amount of pictures for your viewing pleasure today. :)
And, just to give you an idea of the crazy weather in this state that I live in…it snowed on Sunday night, was 19 degrees Monday night and today it was in the mid-70’s. :)
I love icicles!
I really love the way the sun is shining through this leaf!
See the rainbow?!
Pictures like these make me so grateful I bought the 60mm micro lens!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
You’ve probably figured out by now that I went to Wintergreen! Yep, my uncle and his family took me to Wintergreen last week (Wed. – Fri.). They went skiing on Thursday (I watched my cousins, Cadence, Justus and Asher) and then they took me tubing Thursday night. It was so much fun!!! As we drove up to our house on Wednesday it was snowing and we ended up with 3-4 inches of snow! Thursday afternoon, when the little ones were sleeping and Uncle Kevin was working, I went outside and captured some of the beautiful scenery around the little house we were staying in!
I absolutely love snow; sparkly, fluffy and altogether lots of fun!
Isn’t it so neat how each icicle is shaped a little different?!
Snow and ice on a fence.
This icicle was hanging on the grill and the sun was shining brilliantly through it. As I was taking pictures of it I noticed that it was melting! I got really excited because I had wanted to try and capture water droplets before but had never had the chance! So, I held the shutter button down and took lots of pictures of the icicle as it slowly melted!
Here are two of the results:
Isn’t that so neat!? I couldn’t decide which one I liked the best so I leave that choice up to you! (I’m leaning towards the photo on the left as my favorite!)
Anyways,there are a few of the many pictures I took of the ice and snow at our vacation home in Wintergreen! There is a slight possibility that I’ll post some pictures of my two little cousins playing in the snow too! :)
Have a blessed day!
This morning before breakfast I saw these beautiful water droplets hanging off a metal pole and I just had to go take pictures! (Have you heard that before?)
This is my favorite photo of the ice droplets! It looks metallic, doesn’t it?
Well, since I’m here I might as well say that I’m formulating a new design for my blog/website. I haven’t figured it out quite yet but I’m getting there…and I’m excited about it!! :)
(I know I’ve had the sign that says “Blog under Construction” up for awhile and I’ve hardly done anything to the blog…FYI, the blog is under construction in my head. I just haven’t put my ideas onto the actual blog yet! :)
Truthfully, I’m still tossing up whether to get a website or just stick with a blog. Money-wise the free blog is winning currently! :) :)
SO, if you come on my blog one day and it just looks totally weird please ignore…I’m working on it! :)
Okay, I said what I wanted to say!
Now you all have a blessed day! :)
