Finding Nature in Winter

Again this week, I am participating in No More Winter Whining.  This week's subject is finding nature in winter.  I headed out with my camera and hopefully you will enjoy these pictures I snapped.

Our State Park covered in snow

Snow covered pines against the sand dune.

Trees down across creek

We had snow, rain and snow. Thus, it created an ice jam on the Grand River.

These are ice chunks broke loose from the jam and floating by.
Ice floating out to Lake Michigan
Nature is all around us.  The wind, the snow, the rain.  We had thunder, rain, and lightening this past week.
Why not get out and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer.
The kids love it.
The doggies too!~

  8. Hello! I'm here through the No Winter Whining linkup. I've been enjoying your photos. My favorite this week is the "ice floating out to Lake Michigan." Also the shot of the sledding hill. What would it be like to have a hill like that to go down? My kids would be in heaven!

  9. It is so nice to see that other parts of the world are faced with the same view as I am looking at! Wonderful shots of nature in winter, and, you even found colour! Thanks so much for joining in on our No Winter Whining, this week, it is a pleasure! Cheers~
