## You want to see the magic of the nature? see below. We got beautiful snow today and had the chance to have a very beautiful view throughout the day and at night. So, I decided to take out my camera and take some long exposure shots. Here we go for one of them. ### Please let me know how do you think of it? ------------ [![IMG_1911-3.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYJnhoi7qBvNU5L9MKny6kcaXgBtpUSApoXPduNWTKj8w/IMG_1911-3.jpg)](https://steemit-production-imageproxy-upload.s3.amazonaws.com/DQmYJnhoi7qBvNU5L9MKny6kcaXgBtpUSApoXPduNWTKj8w) click on the photo for high quality version. !steemitworldmap 35.793504 lat -78.639402 Raleigh, NC d3scr! ------------- ### Here is how it was shot: ### 80 mm, f/18, 15 s, ISO 200 ------ I hope you like it!

Country roads, take me home :) I love to share, but I feel like nobody can see this.... well here's to hoping it catches your heart for a moment :) Here's a few captured memories from a few days ago. I took them while wandering through an absolutely magical old growth hemlock forest in West Virginia. You can simply feel it in the air! These will stay with me as lasting impressions... How wonderful, a forest left to grow. Long may it be so! WOW!!!! !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmaTc1VjoUYx2SRy8cezedRZi1XoPhUBn1zTCCE2xRU1Yw/image.png) !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmcEcZQnL3vKjo96vBKnM4txBuorkxinNRqYoArReSxWq1/image.png) !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmckxXRehTYR4wyvDeCWfqrQ7FrjBj5bYzULQnEGLEiYzU/image.png) !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmaaL3S256gjJoNx6THhZvQJ8uCCZ4kuN1GmNBtGhSs4pA/image.png) !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmdqaQU4KBmcPp5HNCJCMfBweUp7DJJQ4H6WpRdAsSGhNV/image.png) !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmRLEUarWwuiBYSp4qvQPVA4sFAUGBhiN4zY7Er6MrkD7N/image.png) !(https://steemitimage
Last night, my town got some snow. Finally, in the middle of January, some snow started to fall. In the beginning, it was rain. I was going to a training and I got all wet because of this. But when I got out from the training, surprise, surprise.... all white. Here are some pictures I took last night. ![IMG_20180117_211358.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmePDCfDLeDRYXNtf8NMS1hnA4jHtx5iWkaorHMVqawGCC/IMG_20180117_211358.jpg) ![IMG_20180117_204449.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmVnujyprmrKzEvv3URdobw196DRgiM7njacg1tNpg4Dej/IMG_20180117_204449.jpg) What do you think? Magic, right? I'm glad I managed to have these pictures, because I think the snow will go away really, really fast.

I was grabbing my snow brush to remove the snow from my car this morning before leaving for work. @cbhondarider said "Stop and wait a minute." The below video is an adaptation of what he did. https://youtu.be/nctH3JPY05M Video Courtesy of Tyler Durden I'm convinced that he woke up the entire neighbourhood. ![IMG_1510027611181.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmciPqx3ukTMASpne17KH9CVthWHKJDBaLCmzB21BF1hoY/IMG_1510027611181.jpg)
It snowed here today. It wasn't a Rocky Mountain "event" but the snow did fall most of the day. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmRJUwcQauJDY3N3GWLZ996gqSWmNQVuroUbHs3VEzFXeg/image.png) Despite the weather I took my daily walk through the woods and down to the lake. Here are some of the scenes I saw on the way. Below is the trailhead leading into the woods. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmUJ2gGTSMbUzrnuEweENACtkvWzC8z1tC14SXYxsp4P1R/image.png) Further down the path you can see how heavy the snow was as it pushed the small trees down over the path. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmQE28ZCSFQmUz8ADDXFBnkGyd67TmhP2gvcmVKu76q4a7/image.png) And, of course the snow on the dead fall made it look extra cool. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmd48pGGJXDyYijetMRkmaSTkFb34GkyNj5gG3jFEJhkAV/image.png) It was ever so quiet. Except for my footsteps there was no sounds to be heard. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmQQi6RBQ9qDwbK2SEEA3p1HMed5Wn4zzDDH3FyJta3Gk9/image.png) The deeper I went the darker it got.
Early weekend I would post a picture. but there are so many people using the internet I cannot upload any thing.

Within seconds your eyelashes freeze!!! Meet Anastasia Gruzdeva from the Russian town of Oymyakon in Siberia where today the temperature measured a mighty chilly, some might say bone cracklingly cold -67 Celsius. The town, which boasts around only 500 inhabitants, got its name from the nomadic reindeer herders who would gather there to take advantage of the thermal hot springs - Oymyakon means "water that doesn't freeze." Pretty much everything else in the town does though!!! The list of things that don't function in such biting temperatures includes not only your eyelashes, but all electronic devices, mobile (cell) phones won't work, pen ink freezes, as do indoor toilets and plumbing, and they only get about 3 hours of daylight in winter. All of which mak
Today is the first day since I have been back at Radford University that it has snowed. Avery is having a blast with her best friend Chole. It's funny how excited dogs get when they see snow I don't know what it is haha! Hope everyone else has been having fun in the snow where ever you are. https://youtu.be/SE4QGT3a1aI ![IMG_2555.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdsGwKbDAihRWS8W44SsVLPBYvhZQHxbAAb8LiBAD9EEw/IMG_2555%5B1%5D.JPG)![IMG_2405.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmUWEkDdA7phPKz4Et4gBsJAaTvsi1uFNo9ctcEb4DeKYx/IMG_2405%5B1%5D.JPG)
Today we got about 4 inches of snow where I live. Even in my four wheel drive car, it was quite slippery. It slipped and slid several times on the road. Just wanted to remind everyone to stay safe. No matter your weather, drive safe, walk safe, hike safe. Everyone just be safe out there! Love you all!

So it snowed four inches this morning, and I didn't have any cigarettes, so I'm looking at the news accidents everywhere road closings, now I'm out in the country the plow trucks come here last, but darn it I'm a hard core smoker (yes I know bad for me) and I HAD to have cigarettes. So I go in the bedroom and ask my husband if he'll take me to get them, he starts getting dressed right away I'm like really? Your really going to take me?? Here he is getting the snow of the car he don't look to happy but didn't complain![0CFA8A93-243F-4741-816A-C2525E591762.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTuJiDtjG5qqrQuaAVUbnHQzGan6gd1DoDMxCwJfTGhEb/0CFA8A93-243F-4741-816A-C2525E591762.jpeg) I think he was just concentrating really hard to clean off the car yea. So we are on our way![2D82B802-59E8-4F29-877A-CE59710E7791.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmRK8uxpXejoWF4Ur19HwHpgY1cHJtYip6E4xHHncWGNh2/2D82B802-59E8-4F29-877A-CE59710E7791.jpeg) There's slush all over the road we slip and slide a little! I thought I'd get some br
