A few inches…

…of new snow can really change the world around us!  Though drivers here in Chicago hate snow, I (not being a driver, more of a walker/public transit-type) LOVE it!

Here’s what my favorite spot at the lake looked like yesterday afternoon:

Snow and Lake-1 Speckle Grain Texture


Snow and Lake-2 Speckle Grain Texture


Snow and Lake-3 Speckle Grain Texture

The snow was so very ‘bright white’, I hope you don’t mind that I added a dusting of Speckled Grain Texture, which really enhances the overall images!

All the white got pretty boring, and you could not really see that the snow had been blown about!

      • You should go to your local store and get a dozen bottles of a nice red…have a bottle now and again – it will do you the power of good…:-)

      • Sorry, smacked…no-can-do! Because I must take blood thinning medication for the rest of my life, I am no longer allowed to take alcohol…it would be very bad, and probably do me great harm! A shame, isn’t it? One of my best ‘cures’ for a cold is homemade chicken soup and several hefty shots of a good brandy, then off to bed, under as many blankets as possible!

  1. I just can’t believe how cold it looks, I should have been looking at these earlier when it was getting very warm in here. I like what you have done with them.

    I read the comments you leave on my blog and I always feel like I am cheating you with the few words I write. You are so good with descriptions and expressing yourself with words, I envy that.

    • Not to worry…some days, I haven’t that much to do, so I really study your images, then have to write! BTW, it’s more the ‘damp’ here, living along the huge lake, that chills one quickly. A ‘dry’ cold isn’t too bad, but when the wind comes off the lake, no matter how bundled one may be, the damp seeps right in!
