Ice Storm: Jan 14, 2019

Summerfield, NC, USA

We had our second major winter storm this weekend. When I went out this morning, the temperature was still below freezing, so the ice had not melted from the trees. I just had to pull over and take a few photos with my iPhone for everyone to enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tranquil

Shenandoah National Park

I decided to avoid the normal reflective water scene and go with a landscape of the Shenandoah Valley taken from Skyline Drive in Virginia. The fall colors were unusually muted this year because of the weather, so I enhanced the red a little to bring out the fall feeling.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Color Red

Luray, Virginia

This is my first entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge from the Traveling at Wits End blog. I was drawn in by a post from the sonofabeach96 blog. Since red is my favorite color, I thought I would share three photos from a recent trip to the Shenandoah Valley. We stayed at th wonderful Piney Hill Bed & Breakfast, and these photo are from their property.
