Snow Photowalk pics in the Texas Snow

I walked from my apartment complex over to Mesquite, Texas‘ Butterfly Trail this morning to see what I could shoot.  We’ve had more than 5 inches of snow here overnight and it is the proverbial winter wonderland.

So here are the best of my pics from the walk.

snwalk AC

If you recall from the other day, I took a photo of the AC unit covered in ice.  Today, it’s all snow.

snwalk childplay1

There won’t be many children playing today.  Wait a minute, they totally will.  It’s their fourth day out of school this week because of the weather.

snwalk bike1

Wanna go for a ride?  I’ll bet snow biking is fun.

snwalk trashcan

I thought there was going to be more contrast between the snow caps on this trashcan.  But alas, the contrast between the wood and the snow is quite stark.

snwalk red bench12

There are so many stories I could come up with for this scene.

snwalk bench11

I enjoy taking pictures of things you normally associate with warm weather covered in snow.

snwalk bridge1

Love the bridge.

snwalk creek

The contrasts between the darkness of the creek bed and the snow is fantastic.

snwalk footI have to admit it.  On the walk, I fell twice.  What I didn’t realize going into the walk was that the snow this morning is very powdery.  When I stepped on ice patches below the snow, not even the snow was grasping a hold of the ice.  And so I did scissor splits a couple of times.  Not fun.  Particularly when the old head shakes around enough to cause little blinking lights.

snwalk woods

At one point of the morning, I felt like I was Robert Frost.  Or maybe it was his cousin, Jack.

snwall Chevy

And this one is for my friends at GM.  Pretty cool.  I guess I could have gone into Photoshop and made the bowtie level, but this is really how it was.

snwalk firplug

It’s so cold outside, not even the dogs are worried about fireplugs.

snwalk speedbump

The best thing about five inches of snow in Texas?  Speed bump neutralization!

    Absolutely stunning pictures, every one of them. And, your captions add even more to each, if it’s possible to add to perfection. You have a fantastic eye; well, I guess you actually have two of them. Brilliant photography! You should be working for National Geographic, with no doubt…
