Beautiful, Magical Snowfall

I've been looking through some photos I took in February of 2006 with my Nikon CoolPix 880. We had a heavy snow followed by a beautiful clear morning and I was able to get out in the woods early for some really breathtaking views. Although I rarely use it, 4 wheel drive is a real bonus in situations like these.

The snow was so heavy many trees were bent to the ground from the weight.

This is a waterway and cedar swamp a few miles from my home in the Wharton State Forest.

I love the magical, almost surreal feeling I get when I venture into a snow covered wilderness like this.


  1. You live in a very beautiful place!

  2. Thanks Kathleen.... I always say it's anywhere USA. All it's missing is some mountains.

  3. Wasn't this the snowfall we had when Gaile got stranded here? This was a pretty one. The snow we had on Feb. 4 was like this but it didn't last long at all. The recent snow we had didn't stick to the branches like it did in these pictures. My favorite is the last one with the leaning tree. --- D
