I am blessed to live in a beautiful valley location surrounded by mountains and with rivers and lakes nearby. While I make no claims to be a professional photographer, this snapshot taken not far from my home in British Columbia’s upper Fraser Valley, is one of my favourite wintertime photos. I captured this photo while we were walking our dog along one of the many dikes in our area. The scenery here is beautiful throughout the year, but on this occasion it was a cold winters day with a beautiful blanket of virgin snow covering the fields and blue sky breaking through the remnants of the storm clouds that dropped all that snow. With Christmas fast approaching, I thought this would be a timely post. Hope you enjoy it!
