ROMANCING THE… SNOW – Travel Theme: Romance

Cold, disruptive, slippery, dangerous and beautifully romantic! That’s how I “Picture” this exceptional winter’s snow and ice storms. Part one (of two) is here: “The icing on the snow,” (storm # 11, but who’s counting anymore!)

Below: 9/11 loved ones, are wonderfully remembered by this memorial.

    These pics look so good, Especially when you’re looking at them in a warm room on a computer screen! I guess one of those days your dog name could have been “Snowy Paws”

    Gorgeous winter shots. You captured the icy cold in a beautiful way (even if I am shivering as I look at them).

    Very nice winter photos. I had to keep checking back because I got the notice of this post a few days ago, but it was not here when I came to check, and I wanted to say how much I like these.

    Lovely photos, Marty. I appreciate the reminder that snow is not just a big, cold nuisance.

    Maggie, we drove to the shore yesterday where there actually is no accumulation, and …. did in fact miss the appreciation you speak of. Particularly this year, with the frequency of snow cover being “refreshed,” it has looked a lot whiter, and cleaner longer than usual – not to mention the benefit of exercise of shoveling!!! As someone mentioned, a love/hate relationship! M
