Default It's Not Over Yet

Beauty and the beast. Trees turned into sculptures. Thought the contrast of the tree in the driveway and my kayak was interesting. View from the living room shows the snow getting over the window (heavily processed). Last shot is the price we pay for the beauty. Digging out every morning.

Serious snow. The shot out of the window is the best ... I like that a lot. Not sure if cropping away everything except the window and piano / music sheet would improve it ?

I'm tired of shoveling - been doing it all week. Normally our snow is better behaved, falls, looks beautiful for a few days and then melts. This snow sticking around, and breaking trees all over the place (some people still don't have power, too many trees and branches down) is no fun at all. Hope you aren't having as many tree problems.

This year the trees have held up. Power goes out for short periods of time. Digging out, however, goes on and on and on and on. To give you an idea of how it's piling up, here's a shot of the local golf course.

That's some snow! You've got more on the ground and are getting more each storm than we are. We've only had about an inch more since last weekend, and it's been sunny and warm enough to reduce the size of everything except for the 7 foot tall pile the snow plows have in my front yard (something I don't mind as long as they don't block the driveway!). The weather forecasters are talking about warm weather all next week, so perhaps we'll be back to normal soon.

Perhaps Sunday I'll stop in the Antelope Valley to take some pictures - the poppies are blooming all over, I think it's going to be a good wildflower season there this year.

Hey Mole. We should be getting spring shots like yours. This snow is seriously off season.

They are all good but the window shot tells a story, perhaps different for each viewer, and that makes it a little more special.

Beautiful pictures. I think winter scenes especially just after a heavy snow can be wonderful...but I also don't like the clean up job after a storm.
