As a way of showing February the door – and I have no doubt that most New Englanders are happy to see it go, with four storms in the last four weeks – I thought I’d post a few photos taken this week showing just how beautiful it is here this time of year. I keep inviting my Northwest friends to visit in February, citing the natural beauty of New Hampshire in winter, but so far no one has taken me up on that offer. Maybe this will change their minds.
All of these photos were taken between my home and my office; as much as I’d love to spend time shooting on mornings like these, I do need to work. Therefore I sometimes have to try a little harder to find images I like in my allotted ten mile drive, but that in itself is a challenge.
Even under all this snow, with spring no more than a vague light at the end of the tunnel, the locals have not lost their sense of humor. With our most recent storm delivering heavy, wet snow (what we in Seattle used to call Cascade Cement) a few snowmen popped up in front yards … along with a giant, purple-tongued shark.
Keep smiling, New Hampshire – spring is on its way.
