One week after the blizzard, still an amazing snowy view.

Walking Home from Molly's
As the snow plow tried to keep roads clear, a group of friends walked home the only easy way.

Fantastic night skies on Skyline Drive.

I'd seen these photographed numerous times; never taken this way though. One of my favorite winter scenes. On Skyline Drive looking towards Fauquier and Rappahannock.

Star-gazing Snowman on Skyline Drive
Catching the stars in the least light-polluted sky in the area, I ran into this guy. I shared his view with him for a while.

Snowy Sunset over Shenandoah National Park
One of my favorite landscapes in winter. Sunset directly over "The Peak" (a mountain in Rappahannock County and part of Shenandoah National Park) ignited the sky and my imagination.

Winter Flight to the Blue Ridge
Another of Fauquier County's spectacular views of the Blue Ridge mountains. The leading lines from flights (which I sometimes avoid capturing) led my eyes straight to this shot.
Fox and Young
Red fox moving recently-born young fox (called a "kit") in the snow.

Starry, Snowy Night
Enjoyed how the flash captured the falling snow.

At Snow Level
Enough of a dusting during a virtually snowless winter for me to put the camera on the street and capture how just a little frozen precipitation can change a view.

Barred Owl in Snow
Absolute first time I've seen a Barred Owl up (relatively) close. I've since seen them but never with snow, a bit of evening light from the west or this still. Remains my favorite image of the species.
Rappahannock Black and White Snow
Leading lines and contrast make this shot for me.
Geminid meteor shower
Meteor just below Orion on an unusually clear night in Virginia.
