Lovely pictures...a beautiful pastoral scene...boughs heavy with wet snow...always a favourite of mine.

We don't usually get too much wet snow...climate too cold...lot's of other types of snow, though.

Black ice is a white knuckler when it comes to driving...especially when on mountain roads...wise course of action as you followed, is to wait till snow plows have been down and dangerous black ice is melted either chemically (salt , salt substitute) or the sun's warming rays.

Some of those wintry scenes are Xmas card or modern Currier + Ives type. I also really like # 2 and the also the leaves with snow...scene with pickup is very good too.

Thanks, Les. Sometimes I wish we'd get some of nice powder for a change - we rarely get anything other than heavy, wet snow. It's fun to look at when it's on the trees like this, but much harder to shovel.

It's interesting that everyone likes the second picture more than the other two. The first two pictures were experiments in IR and I just pointed the camera at something and pushed the shutter, rather than specifically lining up a shot. The other two were taken with a goal in mind - the last one I wanted to show the road and the grape leaf to show textures.

Very, very cool...No pun intended. It has been cold down here in L.A. and I am not used to it, but I find it very nice.

Wasn't it nice for the weather to change so you could get these great captures?

Javier - it's not cold in LA, just head a few miles north and then you'll find out what cold is!

Gina - I love living where I do since I like snow in relatively small doses. It rained last night and melted much of the snow that was left, the rest will probably melt in tonight/tomorrow's warm storm. The snow has enough sense not to out-stay it's welcome.

Wonderful series - white is so hard to photograph properly - and these are just right. Especially like the light in the first one. Keep safe on those icy roads!!
