“Winter Wonderland”

As the festive season is upon us it’s only fitting to share photos that convey the beauty of a fresh winters snow.  We were lucky enough to take a small detour that led us to a place we’d never been before… and were promptly greeted with the scenes below.  The fresh snow blanketed the beautiful rolling valleys creating a scene of light powder on a pristine forest.

A beautiful and momentary formation of clouds hung low over the trees on the horizon as the sun began to set, creating the illusion of flames leaping from the treetops.

As the sun began to set, the scene produced contrasting colors of orange from the setting sun and a cold, cold white from the fresh snow.

    Wonderful images Toad. Beautiful winter scenes. Wish we had some mountains close by to add height like these do! Awesome!

    • Thanks for the support Jim! That was actually a bit of an accidental find. We have tons of these mountains and valleys here on the Island, but VERY few places to get a decent perspective for photography. My wife and I had taken a wrong turn, when we encountered this valley… wrong turn? Perhaps not the correct choice of words. 🙂
