Shenandoah's White Oak

First, I must mention these are my hubby's photos, he asked me to post them on one of my Watery Wednesday  post. On Jan 25 he decided to take a day trip to Shenandoah's White Oak Trail. This is his favorite trail to see the waterfalls while they are frozen. I was still at home recovering from my hand surgery and in no condition to go walking around on snow and ice. So today you are Traveling with Mike instead of Traveling with Eileen.

These do look much nicer if you click on the photos for a larger image.

BRRRR, it looks very cold!  I hope you enjoy hubby's photos and he will get a kick out of reading your comments.

Thanks for stopping by and please make sure to visit more Watery Wednesday post and thanks to 2sweetnsaxy for hosting.


  1. WOW - Frozen Falls ~ That is soooo cool! Great captures! Kudos to your hubby :)

  2. Each shot is a wonderful composition of nature's
    wintery process caught to make unique forms - then
    to melt away eventually! You got them!

  3. That's great. I have a little chance to have a actual look at all these.

    I only experienced this when I had my old refrigerator.

  4. Mike takes good pictures! All of the pictures are nice. I especially like the first picture, though, which you made your header.

  5. The shots are gorgeous, Eileen. Your hubby's quite a photographer. It looks really cold....Christine

  6. I'd say "burrrr" too! You don't see frozen waterfalls too often out here in the sunny West! Hope you're recovering well from your hand surgery...

  7. what is his is also yours, right? at least that's what i keep telling my husband (kidding)

    lovely images. i adore the purity of the white snow.

  8. Wow...all of these frozen water shots are awesome. I can't see something like that here!


  9. Eileen, these are beautiful shots your hubs have shared with us.

    Those frozen water looks like melted candles! It must be that cold. Brrrr!

  10. The one thing I like about the combination of running water and freezing cold is the icefalls. Nice job Mike.

  11. Please tell him these are lovely shots, and I'd love to hike on such a trail.

  12. The frozen river looks lovely...you were lucky to be there :)

  13. Well done Mike they are super shots. I love the third last one best.

  14. Wonderful shots and spot. I would not go out to see these in winter - too cold. Glad you did.

  16. Even frozen water looks good to this desert dweller!

    Had neither a son nor a daughter;
    But ocean and sea
    Provided such glee—
    He fancied adopting an otter!

  17. Stunning photos. Thanks for sharing.
    Hope the hand’s soon fully recovered.

    All the best, Boonie

  18. Great shots of the frozen falls! But it looks like a cold hike.

  19. Sculpted water; amazing and beautiful.It must be soooo cold to freeze waterfalls. In younger years I spend a year in Geneva to hone my French language skill. It was in 1956/57 one of the coldest winters in SWL. The waves of lake Geneva splashing over the walls were frozen. It was like a thick wall of ice. The wind was terrible cold and went through all the clothes.

  20. Amazing winter shots. Frosty beauty! Have a great day.

  21. wow!!! a frozen waterfall and river. This is something I had not seen. I have seen blocks/chucnks of ice floating down a river, that's all.

  22. Mike did good, these are all great. I keep wanting to see ice formations such as these but haven't, not even in Yosemite.

  23. Sure looks cold but what beautiful photos. Amazing place.

    Hope you hand recovers quickly Eileen.

  24. What amazing photos!! Tell hubby I absolutely enjoyed these pictures!
    Have a fabulous day!

  25. Mmmmmmm, I'm glad I picked this blog of yours out this morning to visit....wow. These photos are breath taking!!
