Photo Comparison: After Snowfall

After a large snowfall an entire landscape can be changed. Plants buried, new obstacles created, and beautiful sights to behold.

Icicles

As a kid, I loved icicles. They were one of my favorite winter sights. As I grew older I began to understand what a potential hazard they can be to buildings they hang from. Still, they hold a special place in my heart, simply for their beauty. This is another reason why Forochel is so amazing. Icicles hang from ropes, eaves, bridges, and more.

Snowy Evergreens

A lot of trees loose their leaves in the fall, leaving them brown. They can be somewhat dull looking against a winter backdrop. Not evergreens. Vibrant green in a sea of muted colors, even dusted in a heavy coat of snow can’t shut their color completely.

Patterns in the Snow

Wind can do some amazing things, and in the winter it can mold snow into treacherous snow drifts. Sometimes though, wind can create unique patterns in a flat plane of snow.

    Nice comparisons! The blizzard effects in LOTRO are pretty good too, just perhaps a bit taxing for the computer at times.

    Yeah, downtown Detroit just doesn’t have that same view sadly. Only thing I miss about living in the country is the view.
    And Wyoming is good country!

    The city certainly has less “wilderness” to view and Grand Rapids is far less dense than the metro Detroit area. For as much as I miss living on the east side of the state, there certainly is a lot of beautiful wilderness within even walking distance of everywhere I’ve lived so far out here.
