Hope that you can see the snow coming down like crazy. (But wait until you see tomorrow's post.)

(PS - I should have mentioned yesterday that I was going for a semi-high key look.)

I persist to photograph landscapes in flakes ... Result: disappointment. When I see that you succeed ... I said to myself: Why I want to kill myself doing this kind of picture? Solution : Go to Jack's blog and open my eyes and feel pleasure! It's not complicated!

The dusting of snow makes the trail stand out very nicely. A great looking place in which to experience a snow storm. Fine shot.

We here at about the same thickness of snow, just a little powder that tells us that winter is here.

Barbara Lee from Oakland, United States

Jack, I love the snow here. I am not sure if I would have included the tree trunk to the left - I go back and forth as to whether or not this works. The heaviness of it does pull my eye away from the wonderful lacy details of the rest of the scene. Hmmmm...the first snow is just lovely! Love seeing the brown beneath the white!

28 Nov 2010 3:55pm

@Barbara Lee: Thanks for your input. I emailed you the cropped version.

What's all that white stuff?! So not ready for that yet. Great composition of the image, though. I like the curving path leading into the unknown.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I've just done a similar one, and was disappointed by the high volume of snow that I captured, it made for quite a noisy looking image. Love the green and brown rustic tones in your image.
