Viewpoints: My {First Snow} View

It's time for another Viewpoints blog post!  This month I am sharing images from our first snowfall here in the Midwest which happened way back in early December.  There is something magical about the first snow, isn't there?  The temperature was still relatively warm which resulted in that wonderful wet, heavy snow that clings to absolutely everything creating the most gorgeous winter wonderland.  Given our warm autumn, there were even a few leaves on the trees leaving bits of beautiful color in the snowy scene.  I'm so glad I made the time to get out and shoot soon after it fell as it didn't last long. Much of the snow on the trees dropped to the ground in the following days and by Christmas the majority of it was completely gone.  Now we've gone nearly the entire month of January without another significant snowfall.  I hope Mother Nature has at least one more planned before winter gives way to spring.

Don't forget to follow the circle around to see more beautiful landscape imagery from across the country.  The talented Amy Miller is next.  You can see her January view by clicking HERE.
