“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
Snow was a pretty common Winter occurrence when I lived in Blowing Rock,NC. You either had it on the ground or it was falling from the sky. I lived in downtown which was a walking distance to pretty much anything I needed….and work ….so it didn’t bother me one bit. I grew to love it.
The day Intimate Images Photography and I shot these photos,at Moses Cone Manor,there was a wind chill of -7. I honestly don’t know how I didn’t get frost bite!
“Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people’s legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.”

It was a magical location to shoot in…with all the snow. From the mountain top you can see for miles. No one was around except us,obviously! Haha. Those crazies just dying for snow photos!
“Since it has quietly began to snow,
new distances have awakened within me.”
I no longer live where the locals are used to snow. BUT here in Jamestown,NC we got around 9 or so inches over night. We rarely get anything other than ice in this area so everyone is excited. So far I’ve made coffe, snow cream,chili and walked around the neighborhood. Netflix is probably going to be rocking the rest of this day! I’m really feeling like watching The Shining at some point!
“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?”
“Snowflakes fall from high.
Flurries lift and twirl below.
The world has turned white.”
