The Beauty Of Snow

Snow falls this year has been a lot less worse than last year, at least where we live. So far this year Virginia had two bad ones, the latest was the other day. There was power outage in our area and we experienced sixteen hours with no power. I went outside the house to watch the falling snow. It was wonderful to get to appreciate its beauty -- wet and heavy and hanging on the trees, blanketing the houses and lawns. It is hard to capture in a picture, but I tried to work with my camera to get these photos:





I took these photos from the deck the following morning. It was so awesome to behold the early morning sun kissing and melting the snow!

Gorgeous snow photos! I wish our snow looked like this. It gets black so fast in NYC. But it looks pretty for a little while...

@Yanie..thank you very much!
@Margarita, thank you...This year, you had bad snow in NYC than us. But you are right right, snow is gorgeous for the first hour. After they were plowed, they get dirty and nasty in our sight.
