With the U.S. experiencing a particularly historic winter of weather, with the polar vortex returning to many states, a large number of Americans are probably looking forward to spring being just around the corner.

Yet this drone footage over the city of Baltimore, Maryland's largest city, famed for being the setting for The Wire, will remind many of the magic and beauty that snow brings to well-known landscapes, blanketing monuments and memorials so that they can be seen in a completely new light.

Michael Coakley filmed the Charm City on Monday night and Tuesday morning during Winter Storm Octavia, shooting the snowy scenes with his GoPro and a trusty drone.

He captures many of the city's great sights and monuments during the winter: the Washington Monument in Mount Vernon, the wonderful waterfront and National Aquarium, the home of the Orioles - Camden Yards, as well as the expansive Johns Hopkins Campus.

Fort McHenry looks particularly impressive in the untouched snow.
