The Never-Ending Winter

Two years ago on this date I got images of trees leafing out, green grass at their bases, and beautiful blue skies.  Today, it’s snowing….again.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  I love snow.  I always have, always will.  But, I’ve about had enough. Today, though, was a bonus day for a photographer because the snow was pouring down, but the roads were clear, so I could go anywhere I wanted to go to get snow photos. Here are a few of my favorites from this morning.

First, Early Mountain Winery in Madison County. This farm was once owned by a family I know and when it sold, one of the family members and I rode around on a four-wheeler one morning among the grapevines. Then it sold again, this time to the folks at AOL, who came in and made changes that have created an amazing winery business. I’m so glad they spared these two barns on the property. The huge building which provides a wine-tasting venue, is also the location for music events, Sippin’ into Sunset, weddings, and a host of other fun events. In May they will host Derby Days, which is a fund-raiser for the Madison Boys and Girls Club.

After leaving Early Mountain I made my way to Graves Mill.  The Graves family has owned this mill for twelve generations, and in recent years it went into a sad state of deterioration.  Two cousins in the Graves family are restoring it and making wonderful progress toward saving this local landmark.
