Winter Wonders - The Road

You love pictures of snow and ice.

Admit it.  It doesn't matter if you live in the North, or if you live in the tropics and have never seen or felt real snow. 

No matter how many times you slog through it, or shovel it, or say bad words to it, there is nothing like some scenic pictures of snow to make you think "how pretty is this?"

For these pictures, thank my guest photographer, who lives in the countryside a few miles outside of Binghamton, New York, and loves to take walks.

I wonder where this road leads?  To adventure?  To excitement?  To gentle peace and quiet?

Take a deep breath, and relax.
Sometimes, her sister's dog keeps her company. On the dirt country road, the dog walks and explores, as dogs should.  Ah, the freedom of the country. 

Sometimes, there seems to be a lump in the road.  But it is only a temporary obstacle., a shadow, and eventually, it will be gone.

The snow will eventually be gone, too.  But enjoy its temporary beauty while it is there.

What is the weather like, today, where you live?


  1. I do love the pictures, Alana, but I'd rather be at the beach! ;-)

    We had cold and snow last week, and then in the upper 50s and 60s since Saturday. Welcome to Missouri. If you don't like our weather today, hang around until tomorrow!

  2. what a beautiful winter wonderland.
    The dog is adorable and is enjoying the wintertime :)

  3. Wow!!! The pictures are breathtaking. I have never experienced snow first hand. I do hope I can sometime soon :)

  4. Gorgeous photos! We have snow that's been falling pretty steadily all day, and though it does look pretty I'm hoping it stops before we have to go out tonight!

  5. Just looking at those pictures helped to melt some stress away. So very lovely. Thanks for sharing them!

  6. I come from country that looks just like that in winter. It's a beautiful and serene setting.

  7. Alana,
    Those photos are just breathtaking! I love to take photos of snow scenes, too, but I do struggle with keeping my fingers warm. The weather here is unseasonably warm--in the 40s and 50s--and we're all wondering when winter will be BACK. Because we know that it will be. ;)

  8. Where I come from the only snow we get is fluffed up cotton wool in shop windows during Christmas time! I love the snow falling softly on my face and feel it transforms the world into a magical place but honestly these pictures that you've posted, beautiful as they are, give me the shivers.........

  9. We had a bit of snow yesterday, and it all turned into what I think is called "compound snow and ice" in some of the shadier areas. I went out to take a few pictures of it today -- a picture quite similar to yours, actually -- and found myself driving uphill on a skating rink. This little adventure will probably be future blog material for me!
