I agree with Gary, #3 is somewhat reminiscent of a Nevada landscape at first glance.

However, I really like #1 the best, with the interaction between the sea, clouds, sand, sea grass, and a hint of sunlight peeking thru.

Hi Steven,

Thanks,

The first image posted is the first one I took today. Within minutes of taking that shot, it began snowing. I waited another few minutes and then 2 and three were taken. On my way home, I thought I was going to get caught in a white out it was snowing so hard. Right now it sunny, around 40degrees. Go figure???

#2 has to be my favorite. The balance of light in both the landscape and sky is just perfect.

....really nice images Zig, I like #2 best of these too and for the same reasons as Greg.

I wish we had something remotely similar to that beauty close by. It is forecasted for snow tomorrow afternoon into evening here, probably not much but occasionally we get a heavy cover. For sure it is getting cold, could be single digit temp before this one goes away.

Bite your tongue! I've not been checking the weather forcast down here. Just retreated from my parent's up in Wichita Falls because of the talk of snow up there.

Hi Greg, Bob,Dan,

Much appreciate your taking the time to comment.
My personal favorite happens to be #2. Reason being, is that, right after I took image one, I decided the leave the area as it was snowing to beat the band. All of a sudden I noticed the sun off in the dinstace peeking out between the clouds and snow sqauwls. Then, the snow stopped as quickly as it had arrived.

Took out the camera, shot the image and ten or so mintues later, I'm in the truck cause it's snowing.

Crazy day.

zig
