Snow Fun

  1. Great photos, Amy. Back in the 70’s I had to drive through Buffalo on my way to upstate NY. Six inches of snow never even seemed to slow traffic on the Thruway. I used to feel like I was an obstruction.

    1. LOL Too funny you are, Dan. We Buffalonians are tough. Feet of snow is nothing. And yes you get used to driving in the snow. Back in the 70’s we got tons of snow here! Glad you enjoyed this post today! Yes it is a bit different from my usual. I’m getting a wee desperate on what to shoot here. I’m going out this morning hopefully to find decent snow to shoot!

    1. We’ve had to literally run when we see snow this year for the little bit we do get does not stay long. It was such a joy watching the activity on this snow hill. What fun!!

    1. Thank you, Donna! It really was nice to see kids outside. I have to admit however, that the kids seemed to go down that hill a few times then they were ready to leave. In the good old days if it was me on the hill, I’d be there all day long, as would my siblings. Kids today rarely enjoy the outdoors, which to me is a loss for them. This brought a lot of memories for me as well, friend. As I stood watching this event I was remembering a lot about my childhood. Much love to you!! xo

  2. I’m smiling Amy, and wondering what it would be like to share this ‘snow’ frolics. Alas I’m like you at the moment, there is no snow where I live even in my cold 12C mid winter. We get the odd frost but that’s about it. I wonder if our cows milk would freeze in that weather? Frozen shakes? 😂 🤣 😯 😱
    Shots are great my friend, may your trip find a little more 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🦘 🐬 🐳 🌺

    1. Glad you are smiling, Mark. You don’t know something unless you yourself experience it. You can wonder all you want but still it is what it is. Snow in Australia? I don’t think so. Thank you for the compliments on my shots. People I normally do not photograph. I’m getting a wee desperate as to what to capture these days while our weather is being so unusual. Much love to you! xo

    1. Thank you, Eliza! Lots of memories for me arose as I watched these kids. I know my sledding days are over. We all have to know our limits yet there are times it isn’t easy when we used to do A, B, and C. (smile) Sorry about your sore knees. xo

  3. I think you are right about the little girl with her tassels. They give the idea of motion very well. It’s a pity that the background can’t be blurred and the person pin sharp. You’d have to talk very persuasively to your camera to get it to do that !

    1. Now you’ve got me scratching my head, John. I’m sure there are ways to blur the snow in Photoshop but I don’t know how to do that. Using my camera to do so, I’m coming up blank right now. I’ve got my thinking cap on ….

    1. I know, Alexander, and we just didn’t come in all day long except for lunch of course. With the lack of snow this year I’m glad these kids did have some fun. I miss the days when I was a kid out in the snow for hours on end.

      1. Hey, you are just making my eyes wet by your memories of childhood. Don’t do that🤣, please.
        It seems to me we had really nice childhood. The time was harder but people were happier than now. It’s just my opinion. It was the worst punishment in my childhood, when parents said – “Today you are staying home and not allowed to go outside”.

      2. I remember how we fought about coming in for the day. We just didn’t want the fun to stop. I happen to agree with your sediments. Kids today don’t want to be outdoors. We lived to be out of the house!

    1. I’m afraid my sledding days are over, Charlie. No, I’d rather watch and/or photograph the fun. That day brought a lot of memories to the surface for me as I was reflecting on my own childhood. Have a great day today!! xo

  4. Yes, many smiles. My imagination can make the snow and tassels fly! I don’t want anyone to hate me, but I hope we get some good snow soon! It’s about to be February and our snow play has been next to nil. Will the Mottern girls sled this year, or nah?

    1. Our snow play has been next to nil as well, Joey. No one hates you. There are lots of folks who are mourning the lack of snow … skiers, ice skaters, sledders, those who make snowmen …. and so much more.
      I actually got my hopes up a bit today. It was snowing but then temps went up AGAIN and it is presently raining. *sigh*

  5. what amazing action shots AmyRose! I can’t believe that you are hunting for snow too…….here in Indiana we have had virtually no snow. No snowmen, no skating, no sleding, and no snowangels. Thank you for sharing what snow you have had with us! 🙂

    1. Ah, this no snow is crazy, isn’t it? Hubby just told me the groundhog did not see his shadow so it will be an early Spring! God help us all with the insects. I have no idea what to expect in my gardens this year. I will simply observe, notate what I am seeing, and hopefully a “pattern” will arise so once again I can depend on Mother for guidance.
      You are so welcome for my share. I actually got out to a local park that has a lot more snow then us …. I’ve posted 4 of those pictures and more will be coming. Hope you see them to enjoy!! Much love to you, Wendi!! xoxoxo

        Thank you again for sharing your gift with us.

    1. I was smiling, Julie!! At times laughed outright. SO happy you saw these images. I’m sure you don’t even see snow much less experience it. We’ve had so very little this year which had me actually hunting for snow. Unreal how things can change so quickly!! xo
