Spokane and all areas nearby have broken a one day snowfall record which was in the 1800's...It snowed in US inches almost 20 inches in 24 hours. I am stuck in the house..I worked all day shoveling along with others, even though I was told not to. Now I am in pain..I only could walk a few more feet to grab a symbolic picture to let you all know that I am still here...this was taken of my Maple Tree...early on in the day. snow blows off quite easily it is dry snow and VERY cold..You can read about us in the newspapers:-)

Hello Bob,
Snow is beautiful but shovelling snow is tough work. So far we've hardly seen any snow down here in south Sweden, only a cover of grey clouds and today drizzle. But instead we had an earth quake the other day when a loud roar and shaking pipes and window panes woke us up at 6.20 in the morning! 4.9 on the Richter scale and the biggest for 100 years here, very scary, but no serious harm except for cracks in many houses. I wonder if you get them up there?
Your capture of the snow makes a beautiful Christmas card but perhaps you have another one up your sleeve?
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla

Don't overdo it Bob!
The mind wants more than the body allows, certainly my 70-yr old chassis tells me so and I hope I don't have to shovel too much snow, but I don't like the darkness either.
Nice pattern of snowy branches in this composition of your cold winter.
Look after yourself,

Dear Bob,
Grand composition & snow effect. This definitely tells us about the heavy snowfall at Cheney.

Hi Bob,
We here have not gone through what you are there. But can guess the situation and the effects on you, take care. Don't have to overdo things when the body does not permit.
The image is simple and fine graphic of the record, just the way that I would have captured. tfs.

Hi Bob, how much snow!
Fascinating winter composition with soft colors, like a B&W, very well done, ciao Silvio

A post from the snowiest part of the Northwest. I heard yesterday that you had set the record for 24 hour snowfall, maybe you people in eastern Washington are missing the news that we are hearing, IT'S GLOBAL WARMING...................
Good luck this week,
We are having weather but not like yours, I have been able to get off my hill three times in the past week and this week maybe only one more time before Christmas.
Have A Merry "WHITE" Christmas there Bob...

Hi Bob,

I remember what 18" of snow is. I also remember all the warnings that people who shouldn't be shoveling SHOULDN'T BE SHOVELING. Just stay in the house and take more beautiful winter scenes from the window. Don't be stupid!!!!

OK - off my soapbox. I love the shadings and patterns in this shot. Beautiful use of light.

Hi Bob . Now this is what you call winter and deep snow. Love the efect on the tree with the snow build up. It changes the whole look to the tree. Now just stay in doors and keep warm. Take care Nick..
Have a good weekend.

Hi Bob

I hope you're ok now...don't overdo it, though!
This is another very nice close-up/abstract from you, buddy.
The texture of the branches and the thick payer of snow on each on them here is terrific and the panoramic composition that you chose here only emphasizes that. Very nicely seen and taken!

Bravo and TFS

Well....I've been complaining about the excessive rainfall here,but at least we don't have this.
It really sound like you should be wrapped up warm indoors....get yourself a good playstation game and hibernate (thats what I do in the winter).
Great shot of your snowy maple BTW

Ciao Bob,
sommerso dalla neve, anche in Italia ci sono state abbondanti nevicate ma solo sulle montagne con il pericolo di valanghe, gli alberi ricoperti di neve hanno sempre un fascino particolare e poetico.

Buon weekend

Now that is what I call a lot of snow Bob,
Glad it stopped out there and didn't continue on east!!!
Hope you don't have to stay inside for long. It really looks fluffy, almost like cotton up on the branches.
It is suppose to start snowing here and get into the 20's this weekend. Right now we don't have any accumulation on the ground at all.
Try to stay warm and cozy until things get under control and don't shovel too much!!

hello Bob

lovely seasonial shot with the snow on the tree barnches,
with fine POV and panorama style framing,
tkae care of you Bob and don't fatique yourserlf,
prend soin de toi Bob et ne te fatigue pas, TFS


Hello Bob,
wonderful capture, beautiful winter scene, lovely shades and nice composition.

Hello Bob

The shot is lovely,the spreading branches covered in the powdery snow.Very symbolic of the winter itself.The tree is biding it's time just like you,and soon it will emerge full of vigour once more.
I hate to bring this up at this point but it isn't even the first day of Winter yet.LOL.
Ah...anyway it will go by fast and soon you can treat us to shots of the buds of May.
I am glad to hear you survived all right.
Keeping a stiff upper lip is quite easy in weather like this I find...at these temperatures most things are stiff in short order.

Hello Bob,

This is a very nice picture of the tree brances covered in show. I can see from your notes that it's been snowing like crazy over there and loking from this picture i am actually getting the chills. Do stay warm. The picture has good DOF which shows pretty much how badly it snowed in a days time. The composition is very nice with a nice POV. Good and clear details and the lighting is perfect. TFS this lovely shot.

Hi Bob,
a great shot!
That is a hell of a lot of snow to get in 24 hours!! :-)
Very good exposure.
Sharp and clear.
Great contrast.

Well done,

As I look at our own forecast of 8 to 20 inches for today and tonight, I'm very sympathetic to your plight. We have gas for the snowblower and firewood in the garage and are just waiting for it to start (and hopeful for some opportunities for interesting pictures).

Hope you get things dug out completely and get some rest. Keep your photographer's eyes open and maybe you can show us something special.

Take care,
