Good Fences

It has been snowy and rainy here off and on for a couple of weeks and I haven't managed to get out much with my camera. So, how to present my own front yard fence in a way I haven't before? :) We'll start with this night shot. It was one of those snows that was fluffy and covered the branches. We have lights spotlighting a couple of our trees and I spent a little time trying to capture the snow. This photo doesn't due justice to the scene that night. It really was beautiful.

This is what it looked like the next morning. That's our garden shed framed by the snow laden trees. Today we are expecting maybe an inch or so. Somehow I just don't think it will be quite the same.

The lighting on the trees makes a lovely picture -- I can just imagine sitting by the window watching the snow fall while drinking hot chocolate. (This is all totally in my imagination as I've never experienced such a thing really. Oregon had snow occasionally but nothing like this... and now... (well you know)

I like your night photo. I've tried to capture snow falling at night with very little success. Your garden shed looks beautiful in the snow.

both are beautiful, the first made me sing starry starry night and I love the pop of blue in the second. God painted it black and white Himself.

Oh, Carletta, that first shot could not be better. It is wonderful And I love the other, too...I have been wanting a snow that clings and we just are not getting any.

I'm not surprised you have not got out ass much recently as you have a lot of snow however it makes for beautiful shots.

I love your snow scenes! The shed is so beautifully framed by the trees!

Super fun to see the snow and fencing at night. I really like that 2nd shot though. Lots of snow but that chair is what caught my eye, it's a bright spot of color in your white world.

Love the nighttime snow shot.

While you are getting all that snow, a high pressure has parked itself over Utah and we are 60 degrees and no storms.
