Texture Tuesday; Snow Edition

This winter in central Indiana has been quite a snowy one so far. We had one snow storm that left behind about a foot of snow. Now, having grown up in New York State, I know that is not really a lot of snow, but it is a lot for central Indiana. In fact, the schools were closed for an entire week (my kids were quite happy because they ended up with a 3-week-long winter break). I still maintain that that was quite overboard and that they could have had school at least on Thursday and Friday, but no matter, because the missed days have to be made up at the end of the school year.

Of course, that snow melted away in the following warm, rainy days, but just when things were getting ugly and muddy and gloomy, we got a little more . . . 5 inches . . . not so bad. 

Anyway, I know that snow and cold is not for everyone, but it suits me just fine. I think that it makes everything look so much better in winter.

The photo above was textured with Kim's '1216' texture.

Below are a couple more winter scenery images that I chose to add some of Kim's textures to as well.

Happy winter!



  1. Bonnie, where do you live? We may be close neighbors...I live in Indianapolis. I am enjoying all the snow too (I'm from Iowa), and it is good it melts now and then to keep it from piling up in the yard and driveway. I love the middle photo with lots of snow on the ground and the grey sky.

    1. Hi Beverly, yes, we are close neighbors! How interesting. I live in Zionsville. I suppose you are right that when the snow melts a little bit, it is a plus because I do remember that when snow constantly piles up, it can become a pain for homeowners, etc. (of course, as a child, I think it was fine by me until we started getting closer to Spring and then I was ready for it all to melt more quickly than it would), but I don't like when it turns brown and slushy.

  2. So beautiful - I was looking through old (last year and the year before) snow images for today's Texture Tuesday...I found this quote while I was looking for something "wintery" and I think it goes well with your 2nd photo: "When there's snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds." So nice to "meet" you!

  3. I agree with you -- winter looks a lot better with snow on the the ground then having it brown muck around. I really like your first photo image - like the camera shot.. Your choice of texture is ideal...

  4. I'm in your neighboring state of Ohio and we pretty much had the same weather here, and are now back in the deep freeze. Love the photos you shared.
