Everyone is complaining about the snow…but I still think it is so beautiful! Here are some photographs I’ve taken in the last few days in my yard with a variety of light. Let’s replace the complaints with gratitude…
Shortly after sunrise this morning…
An hour later…
I pray that homeless people find shelter during this extreme cold! Make it a great day!
Cincinnati’s Music Hall has quite the history! Completed in 1878, its reputation as one of America’s most haunted buildings comes as no surprise to many, given that it was built on top of a pauper’s cemetery. I’m intrigued now and would love to take a tour in the middle of the night!
When I took the photograph on Saturday, it was quite cold and I’m sure I appeared a little crazy lying on the ground trying to capture the look I wanted…
Cincinnati Music Hall is located in an area of Cincinnati called Over the Rhine and across the street you’ll find these beautiful Italianate Architecture style homes…
I’m so happy to tell you I’m now officially a part-time freelance photographer for an online magazine called “I Spy Cincy”! My first assignment was to go out and take photographs of iconic Cincinnati landmarks in the snow. One of my stops was the beautiful Eden Park, which is near downtown Cincinnati. Just before arriving, I spotted this beautiful tree, parked my car on the road and snapped a shot.
I awoke this morning to a vision of white all around me…glorious snow! My kitty Katie was even in awe!
The kind of snow that clings to every branch and creates a magical world of silence, surrounding you with nature’s calm beauty.
Traipsing outside in my house slippers, with my camera and tripod, Katie followed me everywhere I went. My husband nicknamed me Doctor Doolittle because our dog and kitty follow me everywhere.

The first snow of the season is always exciting…even if it’s only an inch of snow. After the sun came up, I was outside in my house slippers to capture a bit of the magic!
It seems odd for green or red bushes and trees to be covered with snow…
Images from Yesterday
I’ll start with the end of the day. As I was preparing dinner, I realized the sun was setting and I wanted to capture a photo without a lot of trees hiding it. My husband probably thought I was crazy (actually he already does) because I stopped everything and said, “I’ll be right back…I’m going to take a few photos of the sunset down the street.” I hopped in my car, drove a few minutes away, stopped the car on the road with my flashers on, got out and crossed the road to take a few. Whew! Here’s one…
Art is everywhere! Dark/light… cold/warm…hard/soft…Contrasts help us appreciate life.
A little magic is always fun!
Jake loves to roll in the snow and be joyful…and coy!
Taking a walk on our property…leads to a creek…with more Art!
You’re never too old to sled-ride!
Our cabin in the woods. I like that it blends in with nature.
Nature loves to change colors!
The bricks made their own Art!
What magic is around you?
I love snow! So…today was a special treat in Cincinnati! Being surrounded by acres and acres of trees provides a winter wonderland to take photographs! I didn’t even notice the cold…standing outside in my house slippers…taking delight in the beauty!
I tried a few new settings on my camera and was pleased with the result. It started sleeting this morning, and turned to snow later today. I was so blessed not to have to drive in it!
“The snow began to fall again, drifting against the windows, politely begging entrance and then falling with disappointment to the ground” ~Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster
“A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.” ~William Blake
“The first snow is like the first love. Do you remember your first snow?” ~Lara Biyuts
“There is in every true woman’s heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.” ~Washington Irving
Staying warm by the fire…filled with gratitude! xoxoxo
