Default Winter Wonderland or Frozen Hell?

I guess it depends if you like snow or not.

We had our first accumulating snow last night. Things got really sloppy. It rained for over a day, then got cold enough to change to snow. We got about 2" of snow. It was really nice to see the snow covered trees. I went out early this morning and got a couple shots. I hope you like them!

This is the backyard.



As I was coming in the sun had peeked out of the clouds.



I took this one about an hour ago as the sun was starting to set. I looked out the window and saw something sticking straight up out of the snow in the middle of the yard. I went out a took a picture. It must have fallen from the powerline running overhead.

Wow - looks seriously cold! Nice photos - we don't even get frost here in the winter, and it's coming into summer here now, so hard to imagine.

Beautiful photos! A full-fledged blizzard hit here this morning, & so far 8" with drifts over a foot, and no letup, still blowing & snowing hard. Dropped 20 degrees in a half an hour.

I love snowy landscapes, in pictures! But seriously, I miss it sometimes, I guess after living almost two years in tropical climate I think I romanticise it a bit. Probably going to wonder why the ... I was thinking this when I move back to Sweden again.

Great series!

We got another dusting of snow last night. I love to see snow on pine trees. I had to get a shot.



I also decided to use the panorama mode on my FZ35 for the first time since getting it in March. I think it turned out good. I didn't notice it until I was working with the files, but there is a cat in one of the trees.

G'day JayC

Looking at these images, I see several things - some I like, some I don't like .... but I'm talking the weather, not your camera work !!! ... I personally, have never liked snow > it's cold & wet & miserable when you're out in it

But I like the 'cuteness' of image #4

ps- for geographic reference purposes, the southernmost part of mainland Australia is around 38deg S ... about the same north in the US as San Fancisco or Washington DC, and Mick ^ and I enjoy weather a bit like that in southern California ... hard to live with all year round but someone's gotta do it :-)

Regards, Phil
