Finally We Have Sunshine

After all the snow that we have had this winter, it sure has been great to see the sun and feel a little warmth this week. We actually had a couple of days with the temperatures in the 70's. And, with the sun shining and the temps much warmer, I had to venture out with camera in tow.

While heading to lunch I happened to see these shadows over the door of City Hall.

Later as I walked to the Bank, I spotted this shadow. I thought it was interesting the way the shadow looks nothing like the bench.

One shot wasn't enough. I had to get a couple.

The trees behind the benches made some great shadows on the building.

And last but not least, the little shrubs leaving their image on the concrete.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and that you head over to Hey Harriet to check out more Shadow Shots from around the world!!

Snowy Shadows

Well it certainly has been a snowy winter. I have to say that I have enjoyed the beautiful wintry scene. Below are a few pictures from our snow event this past Wednesday.

Here, Michael is cleaning off his car so that he can make the drive home.

The girls and I decided to hang around downtown for a bit longer to take a few pictures.

With the snow coming down and the temps falling, we soon headed to our car to make our way home also.

We were traveling at a slow speed, so Lindsey snapped a few pictures from the warmth of the car.
This is the bridge on Highway 185.

Here you can see the line of cars we were traveling with.

I think the rocks along the highway are so pretty with the snow and ice.

This highway has several rock and tree lined sections. It really is a beautiful route to travel.

My tracks going into the drive.

Thursday morning, the snow plow made its way out our street. This is the first year that I have seen them plow here. It is a dead end street, with only 12 houses and usually doesn't get plowed. (I think the plow driver is related to one of our neighbors, so he takes the time to plow our little street)

With the sun shining Thursday morning, I ventured outside to capture the shadows being cast in the snow in our backyard.

And, of course I had to measure the snowfall while I was out there. Almost 6", bringing our total to 21.7 inches this winter, which is alot for us here.
I hope you enjoy the pictures, and that you head over to Hey Harriet to see what other shadowy pictures others have posted this week.
