Graphic Nature in our Neck of the Woods

My favorite season to photograph is winter. No matter where
I turn, I see lines and shapes that form beautiful images, too beautiful
to articulate. Not even a camera does it justice, but from the comfort
of my home, I have taken the following shots. What is so cool is that
I did not use any special settings nor edited these with any software.
I just have a good Nikon D50. God did the rest, right down to the lighting.

The way the snow piled and drifted up on manmade objects intrigued
me. Check out the wicker chair that looks like a pig nose.

Not sure yet if this snowstorm broke the record of 28 inches from 2003; the verdict is still out while weathermen argue about it. We didn't open our doors to put a measuring stick into the drifts, but if I had to guess, I'd say we got 26 inches at my house anyway. Nonetheless, it was deep, cold, and gorgeous.

I love the transformation snow makes on an otherwise gray and dull winter world. It's been a beautiful weekend!

Beautiful photos! I'm not really a "snow person" but our area got a nice load of it yesterday and it is beautiful to look at. I just don't like to get out in it. Too old for that now! :0)

I love these. I have been out taking pictures like crazy too. I told my dh today that snow makes ordinary things look extraordinary.

Not sure if my comment went through because I did it from my phone...if not, I was saying that is a lot of snow!!! I can't believe all the snow and rain that this year has brought already, and it's only February. Enjoy it if you like being out, I like to be cozy by the fireplace and drink some hot chocolate. =)
