A fine story along with a great photo depicting just how beautiful, if sometimes savage and unforgiving, Mother Nature can be. Very well portrayed.

Amazing photo...the blur was necessary to convene the blizzard.
Always good notes...always much to think about. :)

Superb image and you are absolutely right: the whole essence of the image is a huge part of the story.
Nature photography is not only about crispness, composition on the thirds, precise metering and lighting. Nature is also this: raw and real and ... ... ... unforgiving
P.S. I am glad I found your work too.

Thank you for having thought of one of my photos. I have visited your gallery of photos and hew could see that you have a few very good works and a few very documented commentaries.
The photo that you present of this tree due to the great storm one can guess or feel everything what does not gather the photography, ways intrasitables, accumulation of snow in the roofs, immobilized vehicles and many things more. But here in my country there is a saying that he(she) says " To The evil time, good face " WHICH means that with tenacity, desire and I work quite is solved
A cordial greeting friend

A magnificent shot Bob!
I'm shivering just looking at it!
Excellent shutter speed to give the bit of blur from the snow that intensifies the atmosphere.
Very well done,

Well, now I almost feel the cold and the pain from seeing the photo and reading the story. I hope that son remembers what you did for him and will be a dedicated parent himself. It is a strong image. Thanks for sharing it and the story.
Evelynn : )

cette photo qui me fait penser à une peinture ressemble
exactement aux rudes hivers que l'on a au Québec et Canada
ce que j'aimes de ta photo, c'est l'arbre, le brun de la branche
qui se détache des couleurs de l'arrière-plan
TFS pour la photo et pour l'histoire

A nice romantic picture with an unromantic story that reminds me a fact. Two years back there was heavy snow fall in Shimla hills. It was the worst snow fall we didn't faced for a decade. I was positioned at my small retreat in Solan, a small town located in lower altitude near Shimla. People rushed from the plane to enjoy the snow and also a ten member team of my friends and their family from Delhi. They enjoyed the snow fall, sculptured snow man, and staying after two days, they left thanking us for our hospitality. Then I went out to collect logs to lit fire because due to massive power cut our power batteries were drained and stored water and food were finished. At night, my wife, my daughter and myself gathered energy for the next day having some soup and bread only.
