Finally I have a photo with snow in it!
I got back home last night from an action-packed skiing holiday Bulgaria. I will try and catch up on the amazing photos you have all posted over the past week.

I hope you like this one!

Very cute snow picture. You have found a very creative idea and realized it perfectly. Amazing reflection of the snowflakes, wonderful sun rays, impressive snowy tree, nice colour palette. My compliments and all the best in 2008.

Hello Joe,
Splendid image with the snow well frozen in time. The backlight works its' wonders here. Thanks for sharing this fine image Joe.

Action packed skiing eh? Well this sure didn't look lik England! If I've said it once...I've said it qa million times...give me a week of skiing in Bulgaria...Now I'm going to haev to go look at a map of this ever changing world....I know what that backlit snow is doing..It's blowing off the tree..nice image..It's sort of hard to catch snow...like flying birds and falling leaves..but it worked well for you here...were you flat on your rear after falling then hitting the tree with you legs? Hmmmm..

Hi Joe,

This is one shot I'm not apt to get here in Tucson since it snows about once every few years. I love the composition with the tree on one side and the snow on the other. The sun shining thru the tree is quite a sight.

There's a star quality in this shot Joe!
Clever to get the sun shining through this snow-laden fir tree in a superb composition while the snow swirls around infront of the blue sky.
Excellent capture!
