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.


  1. Enjoyed this series of snowy photos! I know nothing about driving in the snow! So your photos are an experience for me! I imagine the snow creates some beautiful features of bare trees and rocks!

  2. Beautiful photos! I can't imagine driving in doesn't look very safe to me! You captured some lovely images along the way though :)

  3. Great pics - that is a lot of snow, it seems everybody has gotten more than usual this winter --hurry spring!!! Love your shadows - even the ruler has a shadow!!!

  4. Although I used to live in the Northeast, I can't say that I miss the snow!


    A seeker of shadows one day
    Asked shadows to come out and play:
    “O shadows, my dears,
    Despite all my fears,
    I hope you will not run away.”

  5. You really got some great shadows out of all that snow! You won't catch me driving in snow, but then we rarely get it and aren't equipped for it.

  6. The pictures from the warmth of the car would be my choice for where to be on a day like this!! Thanks for sharing the snowy day -- i'd rather look at your beautiful pictures than be there though ;>)


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
