Good morning neighbour :D
Superb composition and great notes.
I love this early taste of winter, even though I am still looking forward to the richness of fall.
Wonderful posting as always

A beautiful scene with each hill rising higher until the peak. Snow has a way up making things beautiful. Your story reminds me of a time I was flying to Maine and happened to sit beside a young man who was transfering there. He told me of how his neighbors were attempting to get him prepared to survive the winter.

Very lonesome but beautiful, Bob.
The thin layer of snow on the road looks dangerous alright.
Must drive carefully, if you have to.
The B&W medium suits the mood of the scene.
TFS and regards.

There's sadness in the note and photo.
Beautiful shot...love it in b&w. There's always something about b&w...can't really explain it...it's like a memory and a feeling.

definately one of my favourite shots from you.
+++ Excellent composition with the road falling away at the bottom, superb sharpness and detail. The B+W makes this picture.
--- Nothing :)
Very good capture.

An outstanding B&W with an excellent POV. It looks as of the road continues up the hillside. Very well captured and potrayed. Thanks for sharing.

After gone through your notes and find so much story to tell about the photo you caotured regarding what nature can do in a environment like this! real thanks, Bob!
captured well on good pov with road going down hill and to the far horizon!
B&W bringing another atmosphere and mood!
well done and well seen

Winter in black and white, Bob. Wicked indeed! Or, as we Mainers used to be sometimes wont to say, in a curious convergence of seemingly contradictory colloquialism: wicked good! :) With apologies to that waste of a fine bit of Shakespeare, this does seem a good subject for B&W, well composed, as usual, with interest added by both the road and the background and foreground tree line and line of trees. The trees are nicely limned with snow. After a hint of autumn chill these last days in Wisconsin, we're headed back to 70s and 80s, and I'm all for it. The white stuff will come soon enough.

Great B&W shot. It speaks of the harshness of the place. Wonderful portrayal ...... very interesting note.

What a GREAT writer you are.
Loved the image.
You have, again, "educated" me further.
Wonderful to have met you ... someday in person ... I hope.
Greetings from the COLD north.
