January 14 (14/365) Snow pics

I know I said I wouldn't take many more snow photos. However, it's really hard to do when there is SO much snow everywhere! Our weather was even on Good Morning Amercia and been in the national news!

I ended up with several different photos for today. Like Andrea (I think it was Andrea), I don't take a whole bunch of photos. I take a couple of a specific subject (usually) and then pick the best one of that.

I had such a hard time picking tonight! I loved the softness in this photo. It's a river, frozen over and covered in snow. It's such a soft photo. The reality is that it's around -30° outside and so bitter cold it's hard to breathe! Such harsh weather; sharp and bitter cold. To look at it though, it's breath taking and soft and beautiful! There is a river under all that snow. The rivers here move very slowly and freeze over. It always amazes me that there are fish in there! I'm hoping to get out and get some good photos of ice fishing this winter. If I can find the intestinal fortitude to walk out on that ice!

The last photo below is the same as the photo for today (above), I just sharpened it a little to add texture and remove the softness.

How beautiful. I have to say though I'm enjoying it from your photos and hope we don't have a similar scene soon.

Very pretty picture. The rivers used to freeze over where I grew up and we would walk for miles almost to the Chesepeake Bay. My mother would have killed us! Scary when I heard a crackor pop under my feet!
