Winter Scenes from My World





This is my contribution for MY WORLD-TUESDAY . Taken Saturday, January 2, 2010 in and around Craig's Creek in Botetourt County, Virginia. Temperature with wind chill factored in was 10 degrees. Needless to say, I did not tary too long outside. A wee bit too cold for me.

Do stop by the fab meme and check out the many contributors from all over the world. That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia.

Love the second shot - just beautiful.

Can you even believe how cold it is?!?

Sylvia K said...

What gorgeous captures, Erin! The reflections and the color of the water -- particularly in the second shot are breathtaking. And, oh, does it look cold!

Hope your new year is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Beautiful shots of winter, be it way too cold. Love the knarled tree roots soaking in what looks like slush but I'm sure at those temps it's solid.
Have a great week Erin.

Gorgeous winter snaps, very scenic.

Your really know how to take photos. It seems to me that what ever you see you are able to make it special. These three photos are really beautiful and so atractive.

Janie said...

Beautiful shots from your chilly world. I love the old gnarled tree, and the pretty cold blue in sky and water.

Evelyn Howard said...

Amazing colours in the first photo, a lovely bridge - nice capture.
The colour of the ice is so so blue, almost green. Very nice.
Thanks for sharing - I love them all. Stay warm, and happy new year!

Thanks for the photo's, what a beautiful part of the world you live in. It's quite different here in Daylesford, Australia where we have another hot, hot day with bright blue sky. It's been nice visiting your blog, thanks xo

Erin, these are lovely winter pix! Yikes, 10 degrees, I bet you were cold! Happy My World Tuesday! Thanks for visiting my post! :)

The water is such an interesting shade of blue! Makes me cold just looking at it!

Brit Gal Sarah said...

Boy it looks cold and those temps are where we are headed this week! Great piccies.

NatureFootstep said...

I like the image of the bridge. It is like it invites you to stroll on to it.

Gattina said...

Looks quite cold at your place too, lol ! It could be here in Belgium !

Lew said...

You are right Erin. Those storms travel right up I-81 and catch us a few hours after you are snow bound. We usually are a little warmer and not as much snow as in the Shenandoah. You got some great shots of the creek and the old bridge!

Manuela@TPOH said...

Those are just beautiful photos! I'm actually excited because today it's in the 20's!! We might get snow tomorrow (very exciting for us in Georgia).
