Winter in Allegany
We are expecting a deep freeze this week here in Allegany and without a doubt the skiers and snowmobilers couldn’t be any happier. Thought this would be a great opportunity to finally post a few of my snowy shots from this November when the hills still had a little color on it.
I love the light and darks in this shot!
Don’t you love the scattering of color that is still on the hills!
I thought the snow falling off the trees was neat here!
BTW: all you facebookers . . . my friend Lisa finally talked me into signing up!! I am not sure how often I will update but if you want to swap friendships (or whatever you call it) use the address tom (at) monarchbfly (dot) com.

These are beautiful winter shots. I think the first picture is my fave!

Those shots are breath-taking. The park is by far the prettiest place around.

Those are nice photos Mon@rch, but I bet you guys have a lot more snow on the ground by now, don’t you? We were -12 on the way to work this morning with up to 6 more inches of snow predicted for tonight. Almost makes me wish I still had a snowmobile–it’s been years since we’ve had this much snow.

Wonderful photos. They almost make you want to like winter. We do not have any snow on the ground but will be getting the deep freeze later this week. I am not looking forward to trying to keep our house warm!

It is a beautiful, wintry landscape you have there. I hope all the animals fare well over the next few days with that arctic blast heading your way.

The snow almost looks like a fine mist. I wish I could get down there.

The first and last shots are my favorites. They should be postcard pictures.

I can’t believe the charm that place has in every photo. I think I’m gonna have to make a trip down there this summer, after all it’s only about 4 hours away from where I am in Canada.
