Hi Bob... looks like it was really coming down here. Great image that captures the darkness and cold but also emits a delicate and intricate feeling. Beautiful. TFS

An incredible image of the snowstorm you lived through in 06. Snowstorms like this one I have walked for nearly 10 miles once in Eastern Oregon many years ago and the scenery does take on a new face, sometimes bleak, and sometimes even more beautiful than on a warm, cloudless day. I guess it depends on how cold you are when you are living out the storm.
Have a Great Weekend!

I feel like I am looking through my window during one of the blizzards when I lived back east. I loved a few days like this each winter - gave me an excuse to stay inside. Of course the next weeks were spent pulling off the kids' boots, gloves, snowy jackets, etc. Just one tree, but it speaks volumes. Captured perfectly. Thanks for the memories.

well now you have got and done it,you have uploaded a very artful looking capture that only we who live in the "temperamental zone,sic" can really understand and what a fine photo it 'tis.Bob this photo has the look of some sort of painting and I do not know if it is oil or watercolour but I just know it transcends the norm for photos of it's type.I can't fault this shot for colour,detail or point of view as it goes beyond those petty concerns as it ,is what it is, a true looking moment in the life of us who live in those parts of the world who know winter.An instant new favorite of mine as I can so very much relate to it,and thank you for giving us an opportunity to view it. Bob

Sharp images with bright colors ususaly atract viewers attentin. Your photo is quite the oposite of those but shown in such a special manner the atmosphere you are talking about in your note. The photo has a very special atmosphere hard to describe in word but easy to fell looking at it.
Thank you for sharing,

This is really fantastic!
So much emotion and drama in what otherwise is a simple snow and a tree...it's really impressive what you've managed here.
The blizzard is so well visible and its strength, also, judging after the angle of the snow and the thickness of it as well. We usually get one of there around here each winter but i never thought i could actually take such a good shot of one until now...you've inspired me!
Very good tech part, too, with an excellent shutter speed/exposure balance.
Bravo and TFS

This makes a most attractive pattern, almost like a cave painting, and yet you can also just make out what it is!
I love to watch the snow falling, and it has been doing that here for the last few days! Those wonderful, big snowfakes that look like flying saucers! It is so comforting to be inside and watch the snow through the window.
An interesting shot, really capturing the power and effect of the weather.
Thank you, as always for your interesting notes.

It looks fantastic, almost like a painting. Great textures and colors - almost black and white image.
I like it very much

That's what I am waiting for...some real snow. We had some a couple of days ago, but it was gone before I was able to touch it. The central position of the tree and the overall darkness of the photo seems to work here pretty good. Its probably the diagonal direction of the snow that makes the photo alive.

This picture looks almost like a Japanese waterpainting. Marvellous graphical and artistical shot, with mysterious atmosphere, could be an illustration for a book!
Thanks so much and I wish you and your wife a reposeful weekend

very nice capture of this snow, beautiful and interesting composition.

This one is superb, first it seems to carry heavy pp while taking a closer look you realize it's "only" snow :)
With faster shutter it would show nothing compared to this I think.
Maybe a strange selection for my favorite theme category to put in but if you take a look in there I hope you'll agree.

WOOOWW!!! That is some snow! :-D
This is an exceptional shot Bob!
It really brings across the freezingness of the blizzard.
Straight into my favs!

Wow this is art!
I can not begin to tell you how much this is beautiful.
You have really captured light well here.
Snow can be so difficult to shoot in.
The composition is terrific.
I hope this shot is seen elsewhere,it is too good to not be seen.

This is amazing wilderness view with Tamarack Tree & snow. How did I miss this? I can well imagine what you must be going through during this harsh winter season.....however this is what I look forward & rush to the Himalayas to get upfront experience. In India, very many keep two homes for the same reason, one on the plains and another on hills (6000 feet+ ASL) where they enjoy cold climate when rest of the country goes through furnace effect (several BTUs). You are lucky that way to have the cold all around & need not rush to the Himalayas for a sigh of relief ;) TFS.
