Finally, winter weather has arrived in the Natural State! Let’s celebrate the beautiful snow by having a look at photos that show off how amazing Arkansas looks during the winter months when the weather sends a little snow our way. The aftermath of Mother Nature’s visit is breathtaking.
12. Frozen Mabelvale
Southwest Little Rock looks pretty nice in winter weather! This shot of Mabelvale trees covered in snow was taken during the snow of Christmas 2012.
11. Bowing to Nature
Jonathan Ball shot a photograph of these Fayetteville trees bowing to Mother Nature's will during the Arkansas winter storm of January 2009.
10. Frozen Mount Magazine
The majesty of Mount Magazine is brought to life during the coldest of winter days in this picture. The photo was taken on Christmas Day during the winter storm of 2010.
9. Three Little Starlings
A trio of black starlings stand out among the icy branches they perch on in this photo taken during the winter storm of 2010.
8. Mount Magazine Trees
The ice covered branches of these trees on Mount Magazine look as if a snow queen waved her wand and surrounded the majestic mountain with a glassy glaze.
7. Serpentine Snowy Limbs
This photograph, taken in St. Charles, shows tree branches covered in snow. The branches snake across the black and white photo and bend with the weight of the elements, giving a dramatic feel to the shot.
6. Sparkling Sager
Tucker Cowie took this stunning picture of Sager Creek in Siloam Springs at 1 a.m. The setting couldn't be more perfect for a nighttime snow photograph!
5. Snow Drifting
This large snow drift, photographed in the northern part of the state during the December 2009 snowstorm, is one of the largest you'll ever find in Arkansas. It's not unusual to see huge snow drifts like this one when it snows in northern Arkansas, but you know we've had a good storm when there's one this size.
4. Waterfall Icicles
It's beautiful to see a waterfall frozen over, and it's even more breathtaking to see the unique icicles that you find when standing close to the icy spillover.
3. Frozen Waterfall
Marvin Smith was in the Arkansas Ozarks when he took this excellent photograph of a waterfall stopped in its tracks by Mother Nature.
2. Snow Covered Hay Bales
If you're kind of hungry, this photo of snow covered hay bales taken in a snowy Arkansas field almost looks like cinnamon rolls...or maybe frosted shredded wheat? Either way, it's a fascinating shot to feast your eyes upon.
1. Buffalo River Snowfall
Snow is at its most beautiful when it's lining the banks of the beautiful Buffalo National River. The roads are tricky to travel in winter weather, but if you're brave enough to venture out in the snow, you'll see amazing sights.
It’ll be fun to look at all the photos taken during this week’s snowfall. Share your thoughts about how the winter weather in Arkansas makes you feel, (whether it’s positive or negative), and definitely share the photographs you took of the first snow we got this year in the Natural State!
