Welcome to You, Me and The Dock’s – 2019 Semi Annual Wintry Photo Expo. We think you will enjoy this edition. We love to get our readers and avid followers involved. We requested pictures that show winter scenery being either cold and snowy or fun in the sun!
The photos – shown above left and lower right are of The Big Thompson River that runs through Estes Park. Both pictures of the river were taken in the winter and summer times.
Spending time in Florida offers plenty of relief from the cold-snowy wintry weather that plagues many parts of the United States. Dorothy Lyn from Plantation, FL sent us this photo of the Deerfield Beach & Pier. This seems like a great place to soak up some rays while others are bundled up trying to stay warm.
In a days time, some regions can see up to a foot or more snow fall. Our own John “Wilderness King” Brooks – a resident writer for You, Me and The Dock, measures 7 inches of snow in his home town of Columbine, CO and the day wasn’t over yet. Stay warm John!
Pam took this picture showing how the weather can be so frightful outside while being toasty inside. When moister forms on the window’s outside surface and the indoor temperature is much warmer, it creates a bumpy semi-transparent coating of ice.
Being in the middle of winter and still having several months left, dreaming about warm weather and beautiful rose bushes should help you cope. This magnificent photo was sent to us by Stan “The Rose Man” Griep who is a well known Master Roserian and professional photographer.
The photo – pictured left, shows a beautiful bush full of colorful flowers (possibly roses). When winter weather sets in over the European region, snow begins to blanket the landscape.
The region is surrounded with timber lined valleys. When the winter snow falls on the hillsides, it becomes a picture-perfect postcard. The towering pine trees and their lofty limbs bow to the weight of the heavy snow.
Snow shoeing and cross country skiing are a favorite sport in this part of the world. Carving out a trail through the pure white landscape can be a way to explore nature and its wintry beauty.
Sandy from Plainfield, Indiana has a fabulous view from her back door. The sun’s reflection seems to find its way through the cloudy sky and mirror itself on the half frozen lake.
The northwestern states like Idaho have their share of wintry weather as well. These two photos were sent to us by Jayson. He was visiting the resort community of Sun Valley which is snuggled within the Wood River Valley.
During a storm, 1 to 3 inches of snow can accumulate within a few hours. Jayson is holding his hand up against a pile of snow gently resting on a rail. Sun Valley’s elevation is just under 6,000 feet above sea level. But more importantly it sits far enough north to where it gets the arctic blast coming down from Canada.
In the opposite photo, it is very hard to even recognized the cars in the condo’s parking lot. The snow is piled so high that driving on roads are virtually impossible. But again, the beauty of it all truly creates a winter wonderland! Just make sure you have plenty of firewood and your favorite bottle of wine on-hand!
We here at the travel site, “You, Me and The Dock” want to thank everyone who sent us their wintry photos. We would have loved to post them all, but we would have had to publish a book! We will again be asking for photos towards the end of the year that will match our next themed Photo Expo. No matter where you go in this great big beautiful world, always be taking photos. You never know when one of your Kodak moments will make its way around the globe for all to see! Stay tuned.
We will leave you with one of my favorite winter photos!
