The Window to Wonderland

As winters go, this last one was pretty good for North Georgia.  That’s how I see it at least.  We had two really good winter storms and I got to spend sometime tromping around in the snow.  As hot and muggy as it is right now, I wish this was my view.  I can honestly saw that I don’t dream much of warmer weather when it’s cold.

Today is April Fools day.  I was going to participate in a cruel joke today, but thought better of it.  So, to those of you out there enjoying today, just remember, the joke may be on you.  This shot is definitely not a joke.  I could not make up this much snow.  There was so much that I got to spend quite a while this winter in the cold.  My thoughts go out to those north of here that are still getting snow.

Snow on the Creek

Another shot from my adventures along one of our local creeks during the snow.  About the time I was taking this, I could not feel my fingers.  I am surprised that I actually was able to work the camera.

Having two weeks essentially of snow this winter was fun.  The only problem was not being able to get out and drive around.  However, I did get a chance to spend some time getting some shots around the house.  I had lots of fun getting the detail shots.

We have had two snow storms that have shut everything down for about a week each over the past month.  Fortunately, I have been able to spend a little time with my children out in the snow.  This was a quick shot I got just before we went inside one day.

I was on the way home during one of our recent snowstorms when I ran across these horses.  When I got out of the car, I was just trying to get one.  However, when I got near, it ran over next to the other one and stood there.  It was like it was posing just for me.  The barn and snow made it just right.

The Quiet Bench

Yesterday, we had about 3 – 4 inches of new snow.  It was the heavy, stick to everything, make the power go out type of snow.  So, what did I do?  Grab the camera and go shoot, of course.  With the power out, the aerator in the lake had turned off and the water was calm.  It was nice, quite and peaceful out taking photos.  I just love the way the snow silences most sound.  If I had not been having so much fun with the camera, I would have gotten a cup of coffee and sat on the bench.

Oh, and Happy Valentines Day.

 Milestone:

Today marks the 1000th post and just shy of 3 years.  I have made it with very few missed days and lots of fun times and experiences.  It has been a pleasure to share my adventures with all of you.

Just a Little Snow

Okay, the last couple weeks have been crazy.  It was so cold a couple weeks ago that the lake had about 2 inches of ice on it.  I briefly thought of walking on it and then thought how stupid that would be.  Now we had 3 inches plus of snow yesterday and expecting 3 – 5 inches more and ice.  I took this while it was still snowing yesterday.  Just wish it had been a few degrees cooler.

Barbed Wire

While I was out in the snow the other day, I stopped to take some photos of a couple of horses.  They posed for me for one or two shots.  Then this barn in the snow captured my attention.  It’s always a work in progress when you are on a farm.  The roll of barbed wire on the fence made me think of all the things I needed to do at home.  Glad I was able to take a few minutes before getting back to reality.  Which, of course, included some sledding with the kids.
