Snow Times

We have had our first big snowfall of the year, snow starting on Sunday night and predicted to snow for the rest of the week. It is a big deal here, everything seems to stop when the snow falls. Most of our weather is temperate rain forest type weather, we don't have to shovel it!

One thing that you can do here when the snow flies is get out the camera and check out the cool photo opportunities. A quick trip to my back yard netted me these shots of rosehips and old hydrangea flowers.

Sweet Shot Day
I used a selection of Kim Klassen textures to treaat these photos, but I forgot to write down specifically which ones I used. Me bad!!

I am off work tomorrow again due to the excessive white stuff, so sure to take a few more pictures!

The red against the white crisp ice of the snow is so striking! Beautiful series of photos!

Very, very nice photos. I didn't know those were rosehips. Don't understand their purpose. I found one once growing on my rose bush and thought it was a mutant. Years later I learned it had a name but I still don't know anything else about them except they look better covered in snow.

Love those rosehips! All your photos are wonderful!
We got more snow overnight, so have a beautiful white day today. I need to get my boots on and get outside to play in it. :)

I, too, made a tour of the snow-frosted foliage next to my house. Today, the wind is blowing, so there won't be any snow on those stems again. Your macro shots are beautiful! I'm curious as to the lens you are using.

The rose hips deserve to be made into jelly, not be buried under snow! :)


Boy in bright red shorts,
With a shirt of blue,
Strolling on the Malecón —
I wish I were you;

Carefree and content,
Nothing much to do,
Chillin’ in your bright red shorts
And your shirt of blue.

Love all your snowy faded blossoms and rose hips. Snow really does transform dried up flowers, weeds and leafless trees into works of art!
Love your editing also : ))

We've had so little snow this year. Last year, I remember having an entire week off due to the massive amounts we had here in Maryland.
