I’ll admit it – I love snow. Enjoying four glorious seasons is a large part of what brought me to New Hampshire. I find it relaxing and peaceful to watch it snow. I find it exhilarating to snowshoe through the forests, across frozen lakes, and among the mountains(especially on clear,…

City of Light at Night

By | Fine Art, Scenic, Travel, Urban | No Comments
