Snow Covered 1.15.12

Snow has come to the Pacific Northwest! Despite an incident yesterday, I had the chance to take a few pictures. What I love about snow is that it transforms the landscape. It makes the world softer and a peace descends that can make a simple walk feel like traveling to another world. The pictures below were taken off the side of a highway on the entrance to a forest road. My goal was to capture the details that the snow drew my attention to. They are all SOOC. The snow continues to fall here and we shall see what happens in regards to school tomorrow. I hope I get to enjoy the snow for a few more days.
