Of Snow, Ice, Snowmen, Puddles… Etc.

Guys, buckle up for a TON of pictures! This may be one of my longest posts to date. XD

It snowed last Monday/Tuesday, and I just went photo-wild. XD I got a few neat pictures of the snow, but most of the pictures were actually of icicles or ice. So anyway, have a seat and take a peek, won’t you?

Phew, I don’t know where to start! Let’s see. I guess I’ll start with some pretty, icy pictures.

Ice:

It looks like rain drops only… ice drops!

The poor pussy willow buds got rather frozen. 😦

Snow:

It didn’t snow very much, but it still looked pretty!

Maggie!

Heh heh, I drew this horribly deformed smiley face in the snow with water.

My three youngest siblings made this hilarious but cute snowman. XD After I took these pictures, they made him a “Snow Cool” sign.

They used icicles for the mohawk, a carrot for the nose (obviously), sunglasses for the… uh, sunglasses ( XD ) and a smear of dirt for the mouth.

After most of that snow had melted, what do you know? It snowed AGAIN! (And then melted super quickly but oh well.) The most amazing thing about this snow was the snowflakes. I mean, they weren’t even snowflakes, they were more like snowballs! They were the biggest flakes I have ever seen – a whole bunch of snowflakes bunched into a clump, some of which were quarter-sized or bigger. I tried frantically to get a good picture that showed how big they were, but I didn’t really get any. 😦 I did get some pretty pictures, though!

We have a nice view of this silo from our deck. 😀

There you can kind of see how hard it was snowing!

Ooh, yay! Now I get to show you the…

Icicles

After we finished gathering eggs, I ran back to the house to get my camera. I noticed the lovely icicles hanging from the chicken house roofs, and I just HAD to get some pictures. 😉 I’m so glad I did! It took quite a bit of patience and a high shutter speed setting to capture the drops falling, but I had SO much fun experimenting!

Woohoo, two at once!

These icicles are on our house, and I took this picture at sunset.

And that leads us to…

Water Drops

After I had taken quite a few icicle photos, I noticed that the drops sliding off of them were splashing into a puddle. I decided it would be fun to take pictures of that too! Instead of kneeling down in the wet snow, though, I got a (rather dirty) measuring pitcher from the chicken house, brought out something to sit on, and started taking pictures. This also took quite a bit of patience, like the icicles. I got a whole bunch of blurry or boring pictures for every good one. But again, it was so exciting when I DID get a good one! Hee hee!

(Note: I edited these pictures a good bit – they didn’t look like this straight from the camera. 😉 )

And now for my very favorite one. ♥ Ohhh my goodness I love it so much!

And last but not least, we have…

Everything Else

I took several not-so-snowy pictures that I wanted to include too.

Quite a few robins were hopping around this puddle, waiting for spring to come, I guess. 🙂

I love how you can see his reflection.

This was a fun one! I made everything black and white except for the robin’s pop of color.

I was pretty tickled to get this next picture. I saw two robins fighting in the puddle all of a sudden and quick pressed the button – and it actually worked! I love it when that happens. 🙂

This is neat, don’t you think?
tag (29) (1280x853)
I rather like this one too.

I shall end with this promise of spring. This poor little beauty was stuck face down in the snow when I rescued her, but she’s still so bright and cheery for all that! Daffodils are such incredibly hardy, resilient flowers that can spring back after even such cold trials as this snow. Sometimes it’s hard to be a daffodil, isn’t it? It is for me…

Aaaaannnd I’m finished! Maybe it wasn’t so wise to put all those pictures in one post, but I just wanted to try and see how it worked. XD What do you think? Was that way too much or did you heartily enjoy seeing all those photos at once? Or are you indifferent? XD

If you actually got through the whole thing, which category or picture was your favorite?

Thanks for reading (and persevering)!

  3. Such lovely photos! I love the daffodil. Those are my favorite flowers, and they are so beautiful, aren’t they? I wish it snowed here, but we’ve just had really low temperatures. Too far south for snow. :/

  4. No, there wasn’t too many photo is this post, Allison! And they were beautiful, by the way! Also, there were lots of different things in the photos, so that made it quite interesting. 🙂 The snowman looks really cute. Some of my favorite photos are the ones at the end with the robins in the puddle, and also the silo reflection in the puddle. 🙂

    1. Hooray! I’m so glad! And thank you so much! Yeah, good point – if I had posted that many photos of one thing it would have been a lot more boring. Hee hee, isn’t he?! Thanks, Christian Homschooler!
      P. S. I’ve been having troubles with sending emails to you again. (ARGH!) I thought I sent it quite a while ago but I checked and apparently it didn’t go through, so I sent it again, this time on a new thread that will hopefully resolve the problem. Did it work this time? I hope so! (And absolutely *no* problem if you’ve gotten it but haven’t replied yet. I don’t mind at all, I was just making sure it actually went through. 😉 )

      1. You’re very welcome! 🙂
        Oh, I am really sorry that I haven’t replied to your email(yes I did get it the first time). I should have responded to it this past weekend, but I was watching basketball games all weekend, so I wasn’t very productive at all. Oops. But the basketball games were very fun to watch! 😉
        Anyway, I will try to respond to it soon. Oh, by the way, you said you sent the email again? I didn’t get the re-send, so that’s strange. Just to let you know.

        1. Oh, no problem! Really, I mean it! Hee hee. XD I’m glad the basketball games were fun! Oh, and who won the bracket game? 😀
          Alright! But again, I really didn’t want that to sound pushy or anything I just wanted to… wait, that IS strange! I don’t know what happened there, but I didn’t think the first email showed up in my “Sent” emails spot. Weird. XD Oh well, I’m glad you got it anyway! 😀 😀 😀 Hee hee!

            Nobody won the bracket game yet-the championship game isn’t until April 3rd. But right now Megan is in second. 🙂
            No, you didn’t at all. I worry sometimes too that my emails don’t go through. Yeah, that is really strange! At least I got the email! 😀
