Snowscape at the Lake

Today’s post features some snowy landscape images I captured at the Lake of the Ozarks (MO) last week. I was intent on capturing the “Super Snow Moon”, but instead only got the snow … with a bit of sleet! From my friend Bobbie’s lake house, this was the beauty seen when looking over the lake: […]
