The Snow is Leaving

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 15 January 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I really wish that the snow would stick around.

Beautiful landscape. Love your POV.

@Marcah: Thank you. I was up the mountain looking down and across.

amy from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

Are you nuts?? (says the girl previously from Alberta) LOL!! It is beautiful ... but I'm much more content with the moodiness of rain and fog. However, this is a most BEAUTIFUL image! The vibrant colours with the white of the snow is magnificent.

@amy: Thank you, Amy. We had a terrific hike that day.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Beautiful shot. I like the photos with snow but otherwise, I'm glad it's gone.

@Steve Rice: You folks got hit a lot harder than we did. It was nothing in Corvallis like Salem north.

Well the snow is beautiful...I like just a little taste of it now and then but not too much!

This is beautiful.

Love the capture of the low lying fog in the background. Nice shot.

15 Jan 2009 1:50pm

@dogilicious: I took several shots of this scene. This one showed the most low lying fog; that's what made it the keeper.

Daniel crystal from Kenmare, United States

Great POV, beautiful landscape, I have to admit I am quite happy for the snow t leave

Toni from Eastern Washington, United States

This is a great capture, Jack. Love the lower clouds and the layering. Our snow is gone, melted in a hurry and caused a little bit of flooding - nothing like what some areas had. I work for a farm that has fields right on the edge of town and we had the pumps on, pumping water into the irrigation canals to keep it from flooding the city streets.

lovely shot. I like the sense of the warm earth re-emerging from under the snow. with the low clouds this is somehow reminiscent of geothermal areas in Iceland.
