Icy Drive

Another one from the ice storm years ago. This is probably one of my all time favorite shots, partly because of the color, part the ice and part because I adore pathway shots. I have a handful of those, but this one I was crazy lucky to get as the ice didn’t stick around all that long in the sun. As dangerous and damaging as an ice storm like that is, it is one of the most beautiful things to experience. It is like the world has transformed into this crystalline wonderland with everything thickly coated and sparkling in the bright sun.

Snowy Creek

I have no clue when we will see the white stuff this year. When fall first hit, I thought for sure it was going to be a long, bitter cold winter with lots of snow because we had some crazy low temperatures for that time of year. Now, we were near 70 yesterday. It is supposed to be cold the rest of the week, but no snow in the forecast. I would really like one good snow this year, then it can pack it’s bags, along with the cold, and find somewhere farther north to hang for the rest of the season.
