Ice Sculptures

It has been so cold in our area that ice sculptures from the 10th Anniversary Fire and Ice Festival in Lititz are still intact.

The festival was held from February 13-16.

I would have enjoyed driving around town and seeing more of the 50-plus sculptures that were handcrafted by DiMartino Ice Company, Jeannette, PA.

Snow Scenes #2

A continuation of my walk on the snow-covered road that goes by Mark and Diane’s house.

Saturday, January 4

1 (1)I walked slowly so I wouldn’t miss any of the beauty.

1 (2)White picket fences do not show up very well in white snow. 🙂

However, it still made a pretty picture.

2I expect that a lobsterman lives here.

3 (2)This is one of my favorite scenes from the walk.

I was fascinated to see this house nestled in the snowy landscape as I walked up the hill.

3 (4)There was very little noise except the squeaky, crunchy sound of my boots as I walked on the frozen snow.

3aBranches were heavy with ice and snow.

DSC_3058It was much prettier than my camera captured.

DSC_3060Ice abounded on bare branches.

DSC_3062I often stopped in awe of the incredible beauty surrounding me.
