Our winter at home is so far devoid of snow. I am in western Maine this week end and there is no snow here either. I can see the higher elevations of the presidential range in New Hampshire and they do have snow. There is a snow storm forecast for tomorrow evening and again on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thanks Lou,

a snow storm ... something I've never seen in my area, but I guess we are just having a bit of luck this winter if I see whats happening about 100km in any direction.

Thank Biro,

I've been searching for a lens to replace my thrusty tamron 18-200 but really I cant find any that would fit me as good, or give a lot better results.

It's my favorite walkaround lens.

'Global climate change' ..... no .... for my region it's more a global reset.
When I was five (1965) we had snow from Oktober, and white winters, I know that we didn't have a descent winter from 1990 till 2000, more like early spring.

But one thing for sure it's changing.

One of the best aspects here is 1) the people and 2) the images, which needless to say skill and opportunity goes along with them.

These are wonderful images and beautiful snow. The country side and urban scenery is magnificent.

Here in the Phoenix area we are just getting another day of 75 to 80, however my son up in Flagstaff does have snow on the ground being washed away by the rain.

So it does my eyes good to see the images, without chilling my old bones...

Its difficult for me to say which image is most pleasing, since they all show a very pleasing aspect of your winter landscape.

#2 and #6 are excellent, but most of all the different architecture with the snow that what we see here locally.

I've just been browsing through a Tammy only thread and these two stand out :
Tamron 70-210mm f3.5 Adaptall 2 19AH and especially the Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 IF AS XR. Both have submitted outstanding shots for low cost lenses.

Of course there is always the new Pentax 18-135

Thanks IO,

we are expecting a few inches more today, to think that the winter has but just started and we already have more snowdays than the last 100 years.

I only hope that in a month it will be better then they are going to place new windows, ... in the middle of the winter, whats a perfect proof that we normally don't get any winter.
