County-wide Winter Wonderland

Oh... the weather outside is frightful. But the fire is delightful! And as long as you love me so! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

The staff at The Marshall Demcrat-News would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We also welcome anyone with an eye for a good winter picture to send us their favorite photos. Photos need to be taken within Saline County. We'll add them to this gallery.

Please e-mail original, un-retouched photos to Rachel Harper at marshallcity@socket.net and include the name of the photographer and the day, time and place the photo was taken.

As the temperatures in recent weeks have bounced between balmy and brutally cold, we get occasions where moisture gets caught between, and the result is icicle art. (Eric Crump/Democrat-News)

The performers were migrating geese -- thousands of them -- who chose the lake for their overnight stay. (Eric Crump/Democrat-News)

Wave after wave landed, silhouetted against the remaining glow of sunset, between 5 and 6 p.m. until the ice-free areas of the lake were packed with birds. (Eric Crump/Democrat-News)

The geese also kindly provided a soundtrack to their aerial act, a cacaphony of honking as they talked themselves through their landings and then chatted about the local accommodations, a sound roughly the equivalent of two dozen brass bands tuning up at the same time -- and never running out of breath.

Trees may not be as colorful in winter as they are in other seasons, but they often display a kind of beauty nevertheless -- spare and intricate and a bit somber. These photos were taken Sunday afternoon, Jan. 6. The scene above is looking west from Route H near the intersection with Route KK near Blackwater. (Eric Crump/Democrat-News)
