A little snow for those who miss it!

in #nature4 years ago

I was chatting with someone this morning from Islamabad about snow. I thought I would share some some recent photos I took of a snowfall.

Here is a maple tree in our front yard:

This view is out our backdoor. You probably can see my daughter's home. Storm clouds still hanging on.

2018-01-26 00.52.49.jpg

This view is just to the right of the previous photo. I never get tired of my barn which was built in the early 1900's. Cannot see the mountain and hills with the storm clouds:

2018-01-26 00.52.45.jpg

This next photo was taken either prior to the snowfall or after it started melting off the trees. The sun is trying to shine on the mountain:

2018-01-25 05.51.53.jpg

And for those who saw the post with my puppy on the dishwasher door, here is Sheba at around 8 months. She is now close to 35 pounds now. It is difficult to get a good photo and be able to see her face and eyes. Those black eyes blend with the rest of her.

That will close out this session of photos. I hope you enjoy the winter photos.

A week from today my wife and I are going out of town for a few days for some well-deserved R & R. We both work 7 days a week and went to many years without taking a break. I will try and stay caught up on responding to comments left on my posts, but where we are going we will only get intermittent phone and internet service. I have started compiling photos from the cruise we took 2 years ago, as well as more flowers. They will be coming. I have over 800 photos to go through from our Mexico cruise...so it takes time.


I assure you I have never seen snow in my life time yet! But this is amazing! I don't know how it feels, but I think it made a wonderful nature artwork. Outstanding photography of this beautiful nature scenery. Thank you very much for sharing it!

I Put A water lillys in our blog sir.Please come and visit

Yes I found it.

you are a great soul @r2cornell:-) I likes your post.

Wow!Excellent photography.You are really creative photographer. Please stay with photography. how the beautiful natural view is! Very color full also.

Trees covered with snow always fascinate me. It's nice to view snow all around but difficult to live in these conditions.lot of snowfall make your life miserable. Beautiful view and nice click. Cheers

I am originally from an area where it gets a lot colder. It is not too bad here and the snow is wonderful. But i must say i have experienced winters when we have had up to 150 inches in a season...now that gets a little rough

the snow is wonderful.

Snow always give you pleasant feelings, but things become worse if you don't have good facilities to cope with the problem occured due to heavy snowfall. Lack of resources is the common problem of thir world country. May be that is one of the reason i find it difficult to live with these conditions. Thanks for sharing:) @r2cornell All the best. Cheers

Yes this cold would be hard on many areas of the world where resources are are limited. Even in th US there are homeless people and families trying to survive in areas where it gets cold. It is difficult and gives them a different perspective. Thank you for sharing.

@r2cornell:-) you are a great soul.
I likes your post very much

I like that pics because i love the color of snow, the best photo in my opinion is the following

Looks amazing for the next christmas as an amazing natural christmas tree

The puppy has some Labrador retriever in blood line. They tend to like the snow and cold does not bother them, as long as they have a warm place to come in to when needed. She loves blazing a trail through the snow.

Thank you. I looked at your introduction. Go through and read up on other people's introduction and do another one. Share a little of yourself. To pick up followers and to get noticed people like to know who you are and where you are from. When you do let me know and I will resteem.

I blog for @scilwa and have posted the following for newcomers:


It takes time to build steem power, which is required to earn money on this platform. It is a good idea to do a short introduction post so people know a little about you. I always like to here where a person is from. Also knowing your first language helps (i use translation software and respond in the person's native language as well as English). The following is a good online translation app: https://www.spanishenglish.com/ Even though it says Spanish it covers a lot of languages.

Take a look at https://steemit.com/trending/introduceyourself for ideas on doing an introduction. It does not have to be elaborate. Some people go back and do another introduction when they are more familiar with steemit. It took we a few weeks before I did an introduction post.

I recently read an article that would be perfect for you to review for newcomers. Check out:
