I envy you. We never get snow here. I have to travel at least 2,500 km to see snow! Nice photographs.

Brrrr! Looks cold! Nice capture. Look out for Roses with some icing on them, I have some pics that worked for me, the contrast between the red and white is awesome.

We will hav some sun on (HaHA!) Sunday, but now all is dark and cloudy overhead. We won`t get a lot of Snow overe here, but in Munich or while my military time, I had -15 degrees celsius quite frequently.

So Raghu, believe me, the novelty value wears off quite quickly, and then it`s only trying to find a way to stay warm. I was trapped on the Autobahn for about a day because those "$%&&/(%/&(*' Truck drivers did not switch to winter tires and blocked the road before and after me. It was F*ng cold, and the fuel went lower and lower when I switched on the engine to keep warm.

So, all in all, when the weather is not cloudy and you go out in the right clothing because you want to, it`s beautifull. Nice taking pictures, too. But if the weather gets nasty...and you have to get out...believe me, most of us then wished they were away 2500km from the nearest snow ;-)

:cool:Annie. Great captures, the prettiest snows I have ever seen or on a postcard or photographs like yours. After spending winters in Colorado marching in snow up to my rear, the novelty soon wore off.

Wow Annie!!! we haven't even had frost yet! Thanks for sharing your "frosty" pics, I turned my thermostat up just looking at them. Donna

thanks for the comments everybody!!! It is not that the photos are unique it is just to have the snow so early and as I said, the previous weekend everyone was in shorts and t-shirts. I luv the change of seasons as well though winter could be about amonth shorter.

RealMash: I luv your story of Germany and the autobahn!!!! I visited your country one time about 2o years ago and you certainly live in a beauitful part of the world!!!
