While I think the snow when it has first fallen with the glistening in the trees as the sunlight hits and the sparkles that reflect everywhere and an AWW comes over me at the mere beauty that I see before me....but I'm so glad that I don't live in it anymore!
I really is a beauty to behold, if it would only just come, let us enjoy it, then melt so we can carry on with our lives and not have to worry about what may fall or who may fall!

This is a beautiful picture...did I mention that?

Such a wonderful reminder of so many years ago!

Great.

Oh don't be... I can wax poetic at times, too... Ramble on anytime... :hug:

I do it often enough as well - mostly to people's inboxes rather than through the public comments. ;-)

It's sad that lately I've been too busy to enjoy it so much!!

You are right about the color...thanks for pointing it out...I have to look very closely to catch it on my monitor...I stand corrected. It looks like a bit of color in the sky too.

I have a few shots, including my one post with lightning, that others have comment on the grayscale or black and white... and they really weren't!!! It just turned out that way!

Thanks! This one is a couple years old, from film. I wish I had been taking photos more seriously last winter, because I missed several opportunities to take some nice photos even though we had little in the way of snow.

Funny thing is, this isn't a black and white photo. :)

If you look closely in full-view, you can see a bit of yellow on the one road sign (curve ahead sign)...

But it does look black and white simply because of the lighting that day.

Thank you for the :+fav: and comment!

Well, thanks to you very much... :) I am glad you like it. Unfortunately last winter we had little snow and I didn't take many pictures... When I opened my dA account this spring, I was regretting it.... BUT I had a few pics from 'film' from the past few years and this was one.... It's been more well received than I'd have ever imagined...

Wonderful! The symmetry and the snow so white that you can almost feel it. It's amazing when pictures taken of snow actually look like it snow, wonderful.

Thank you so much! I appreciated your comments... and the :+fav: and :+devwatch:!!

I am afraid I do not have too many 'snow' photos that are worth posting here. I wasn't really too crazy about this one to start with - low resolution coming from a print - and no original negative - unless it's thrown in there with a few thousand others... :) I'll try to correct that problem this winter.

The persimmon seed test tells me that we're due for a lot of heavy, wet snow. :) [link]

thank you very much.. for the comment AND the :+fav:!! When I posted this it was toward the tail end of summertime and I was beginning to miss winter. I am ready for some snow to return. :)

And I like your quote... very true.

Thank you... I haven't started "a book" but if you ever have time and you're interested in 'country' stories... I have a blog site with my memories of growing up in small town America... it's fictionalized, and I've slowed WAY down on submissions... my "muse" stopped talking, I guess... and I started taking pictures instead. but still, it's there: [link]

I had the thought that one day I might clean these stories up and just make a book of short stories.. :) Well... we'll see.

If you ever need an editor I am much better at spotting other's errors than my own. ;-)
