A Beautiful World











In "My World" winter has been making it's presence know. We have been pretty lucky here at the foot of the mountains, ice has not affected us as of yet, but driving to work late last week the mountain tops on both sides of McConnellsburg had a definite line where ice ended. It was beautiful! A glistening palace on both sides. It was neat watching how the sparkle changed through out the day, depending where the sun was (or wasn't)at that time. I did not need to travel anywhere that was icy, although on Saturday I made a trip up the mountain to get Nolan cause Mom & Dad both needed to work. What us locals know as Robertsdale Mountain was unbelievable! Snow & ice on the trees backed by a blue sky was just fantastic. I didn't leave early enough to do much photography on the trip up, but on the drive back I took some quick shots - didn't want to spend alot of time cause Nolan was with me. When you are "2" being strapped in a car seat is not fun even if your Granny is bouncing around taking pictures. The weather forecast calls for a wintry mix tomorrow which should give me another chance.
The shots shared here were taken in that icy mountain world. This was the perfect opportunity to try out the star filter I purchased a few months ago. I really like the effect. Thanks for looking. Click here to join in.

The star filter makes a lovely picture. Ice storms have their special beauty but I dread them. Give me a foot of snow rather than ice!

This was like a walk into Narnia. All beautiful but the top shot is stunning.

I love the look of the ice on the trees so pretty. We got hit hard with the ice storm this past weekend. Gorgeous photos!

Ice always makes for such beauty, too bad it is so hard on the trees and power lines. We had rain here yesterday that turned into ice overnight, and my kids ended up with a snow day. I think it's going to be a long winter...

Beautiful to look at, but you can have it. The first photo is especially awesome with the star filter.

Cool shots Jean!

I really like the middle shot, the ice and sky combine to make a great scenic!
