Snow Day

A few weeks ago we took a day trip to a nearby mountaintop. To muted skies and snowfall, and violent winds that whip in and out of an evergreen wood. All of us girls had cameras along for the journey; the photos above were taken by me, my mother and my brother's girlfriend Samantha. I gave them special treatment in Photoshop for a little extra winter wonder.

Very pretty, am sitting under a tropical sun here with fond memories of snow days. What did you do with photoshop? Do they have a feature button labelled dreamy white winter misting?

Fantastic photos! I've just come back from spending some time with friends at the beach for Australia Day (Jan 26)...and settled down to check out some blogs. What a find!

Beautiful photos! Maybe one day I'll finally experience a snowfall like that. Never in my life have I seen more than just a thin dusting.
