It's Here!...

Yesterday's early morning light told the story,... that is snow on the High Peaks of the Adirondacks in the west. There is no snow here in the Champlain Valley, but as you can see the peaks are "frosted" today.
This is "Giant"... always easy to recognize by its dome shape and the bare rock slides,... with snowy trees and slides in the rosy sunrise.

Wow! I thought the Adirondacks got snow before we did. Great pictures.

Winter is coming on for us northerners. Thanks for the pics. Wish we had snow here in MN instead of a very cold wind and freezing temps!

Gorgeous pics and a wonderful tip - I've always thought that I need to learn which mountain is which, or at least a few tips. Over by us, I can always pick out Whiteface, but that's easy, LOL. I wasn't there, but my town had snow last week for a few days!

Cedar, your mountains are to die for! No mountains to speak of here in Michigan, so I envy you that gorgeous view. Love your pictures.

Thank you, everyone for your kind comments! Yes, I do love the view of my beloved Adirondacks, but when that winter wind howls up from the valley below there are times I long for a more sheltered property. The light on the mountains and the colors in the sky are always changing, I must have a thousand photos of my view!

Great photos.Are you a professional photographer? I can see the southern Adirondacks on my way to Saratoga Springs.On the way back, I can see some of the Green Mountains in Vermont.

I would never tire of photographing that view you have. None of them could possibly be exactly the same! Very beautiful. My daughter and I also enjoyed the photos of the three deer in the field on an earlier post. My "guys" just got back from hunting :) which means i get the computer a lot less than I would like for blogging purposes! It is tough fighting a 13 year old for computer time!!! Have you climbed the 46? I dont recall reading that you have.

Greetings John Tedder,... thanks for asking if I'm a professional photographer,.. After fooling around with cameras since I was a kid, there have been three occasions (in 25 years) where I have been paid for photos, but I don't call myself a professional. I appreciate your comment!

Hi Corin! No, I've never climbed the famous 46, but I have great admiration and respect for those that do. I enjoy getting out on the land as much as possible and in the past have loved canoeing. I'm glad you stopped by,... see you on the trail!
