Snow Day Dawning

It was a moment of pure beauty early this morning. We awoke to find the landscape covered in snow and with a winter wonderland waiting before us. I was out just before dawn to catch the sunrise and take some pictures in a setting that I very rarely get to photograph. I’m especially pleased with the first picture. It’s a large evergreen on one corner of our house covered in snow. It helps to shade my corner shade garden.

The next few photographs follow the progression of the sunrise from our back porch. We’re lucky to have a view of the rising sun year round from our backyard. Enjoy the pictures!

Later in the day we went sledding and my wife built a snowman. I’ll try to share some of those pictures tomorrow!

    It seemed like we just happened to be in the path of a great snow wedge heading north east. I was very surprised!


    My kids were too cold to stay outside so one of us had to go in to make hot chocolate and get them warmed up. Since I went out first and got to play in the snow with my oldest daughter, my wife stayed out longer to get her fill of the snow! It was pretty dry snow on top which made making snowmen difficult otherwise we all would have done it earlier. We all had a good time though!

  9. Great photos! I’m glad the adults and the kids got to enjoy it! Lillian will be out playing in the snow later today 🙂

  10. These photos made me feel really nostalgic. Love them!
