Winter 2013 in Idaho

Enjoy some of my favorite shots of Southern Idaho, Winter 2013.  All taken with my iPhone 4S, some with an Instagram twist.  Find me on Instagram at @angelabdesign.

It’s funny now…  at the beginning of this winter I didn’t think I’d have any good photos for a blog post.  Winters in our part of Idaho can be dry, cold, and dull.  But this year the snow, fog, freezing fog, and art-filled skies made for a gorgeous winter.

We got quite a bit of snow this year.  This day was especially picturesque.

And can I just say that I love my neighbors with snowplows?

It was hard to capture with the camera, but the flakes were ginormous.

A sad day, felt all the way across the country. I cried watching the news about the shootings in Newton, CT. Emotional day for me, picking up my girl from kindergarten. I’m not telling her about the evil in this world just yet.

On a lighter note, cloud stripes 🙂

We saw our fair share of fog in Meridian, Idaho.  Here are some fog shots from around our neighborhood.

And then the fog froze. Fog + zero degrees = beautiful.  Here are some pics from our yard.

Earlier this winter we traveled to Twin Falls so our son could go pheasant hunting with Granddad.  I love the part of the drive when we see the windfarm near Bliss.

Then in Twin Falls we got to see one of the most gorgeous sunsets I have ever seen.  This one is from my parents’ backyard.

And the obligatory wagon wheel arch picture out front.  No filter, folks.

Ok, now back at my place in Meridian.  A lone clematis bloom in my backyard.  I found this so inspiring.  Beauty can survive in the harshest of places.

Taken before we got any snow, this pic shows the Boise foothills getting a light dusting.  Love the clouds.
