Default A walk through the snow

I really like winter, especially when it snows.

Ok you’ve got the dangerous roads, the traffic jams, the cold, the …

But you’ve also have got this.

Beautiful winterscapes Ronny! There's several inches of snow on the ground in my area, but I have yet to get out to do some photography!

It may be cold and hard to get around in, but it is lovely to look at, as your fine photographs attest. We are faced with unending weeks of rain, forecast to be the wettest December in years (in a "La Niņa" year, which is supposed to be dry for us). This is lousy for photography, unless you are a news photographer chasing floods and mudslides.

Thank Pen,

It's not normal to have that much snow as we now have. The last 3 years it's snowing more and it stays longer. Might be that we get the first white Christmas in decades.

Lovely scenes and well photographed. It must be nice to have such a beautiful park within walking distance of your home.

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.

Nice work... I keep telling people about the great results one can get with the Tamron 18-200... and its close relatives, the Tamron and Pentax 18-250 zooms. Meanwhile, enjoy the white Christmas. Can you say "global climate change?"

Ah yes, the snow. Thanks for sharing these, I always like to see how it looks in other places of our planet at the moment
I hope you don't mind when I chime in here? We didn't have a nice "white" winter in the region where I live for quite a while now, but last year we had some nice snow and this year also looks very promising. The global weather situation in Germany or should I say Europe seems to change a bit and allows for some more influence from the east which results in more rain and snowfall for me. I took these images with the K-r and the kit 18-55 kit lens. JPEG's from the camera, resized for forum use, no other pp in the means of histogram works, color correction etc.

Temperature was around -10 °C today and it was mostly the wind that made the "cold" feeling, otherwise it was great weather!

No real spectacular shots, I had my camera with me while doing some Saturday shopping/errands and took an image here and there.

Have fun,
Th.

Kind regards,
