Great captures of the mood as well as the details! (But you can keep all that snow!!)
First shot (is that a rose hip?) really nice detail, church photo great mood, middle photo wonderful scene (is the horizon a little tilted, or is it just my eyes?)

thanks for your kind words!

yes it is a rose hip, one of the few left...
and yes, now that you mentioned it, the horizon is a little bit tilted..so no, it is not your eyes..

btw, we just got more snow...now it is almost up to my hip/waist.

Go ahead and send some snow this way only help keep the power on...brr its cold enough but that last storm well all the white is gone.. we dont want them to be flooding us one day so send some snow over If your side gets to much water that will really throw us for a loop....

I did a little tweaking in Photoshop.
1 Levelling the horizon
2 Auto contrast
3 Curves adjustment lightening up the light parts and increasing contrast
4 Some cloning to add to the sky and snowy foreground on the church shot before cropping (cropping is necessary after levelling the horizon).

Hope you don't mind, I think the shots are worth some pp-ing.

I am enjoying your snow immensely from the warmth of my summer (although it is a little chilly)

These are very nice pictures, a pretty (if cold!) spot. Kjell's edit/rotation works well, the horizon line of the second one did somewhat bother me. I can't manage to hold the camera straight myself - just about every picture I take I have to rotate slightly. And that's with the level indicator turned on, I still can't quite get things plumb.

I can't decide if I like the church or town one best. Both are lovely.
