I took this telephoto shot way in the distance. Only when I downloaded it did I realize that there was a snow plow.
Nikon D700 1/320 second F/9.0 ISO 200 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

This is so beautiful Jack! A great atmosphere, very romantic with all that snow and those colorful patches of yellow in the foreground and from the plows!
7 Mar 2011 6:32am
very nice shot
7 Mar 2011 6:33am
Wow I love the layers of trees into the distance laden with snow. Its a beautiful view.

I like the yellow touch of the machines in this beautiful snowy scene. Lovely.
7 Mar 2011 7:54am
beautiful - love the hints of color

Isn't it odd what you see when you "Get the shots back"(...a phrase that is a hangover from the days when you had to wait for the thud of 36 5*7 prints hitting your doormat) and see them on the screen. Sometimes there's stuff that you just didn't see, sometimes that "Great shot" is mediocre-definately a 2 stage process

Magnific compo !!
7 Mar 2011 9:19am
A wonderful composition in this landscape ! I like very much the trees with snow !
7 Mar 2011 9:43am
Superbes ces touches de couleurs... un peu de "chaleur" dans ce blanc hivernal ! Bises
7 Mar 2011 10:09am
Nice moody image! Great work!
Again, it is those touches of color that make this fascinating as an image.

Très jolies ces teintes

Fantastic long view. The snow dusted conifers look magnificent - with the houses and plows it all looks like a world of miniatures!

Wonderful image ... something akin to the landscapes of stories. One expects to see in it the gnomes, fairies ... fantasy! Perfect editing as always! Best regards, y muchos besos, Adela

Bravo et amitié
7 Mar 2011 4:40pm
just like a postcard
7 Mar 2011 4:42pm
I so like it when the camera reveals what we didn't see and "makes" the photograph!
7 Mar 2011 4:43pm
Beautiful Jack...I have done that...some things you don't even notice...it actually makes me feel good that this happened to you :-) Is this your 28-300MM? (or did you use your 70-300 off your D300S?) Pretty darn good clarity at 300MM...Barbara goes in for her surgery on Monday...our daughter Amy wil be down to help with the drops in the eyes, etc,,,I can't do that..Barbara would be yelling at me after the first attempt :-).
7 Mar 2011 6:12pm
@Denny Jump Photo: She will need someone to put in the drops the first few times. She is going to be amazed at her improved vision. Don't know whether I mentioned it or not but before cataract surgery, I was taking two different drops, one twice a day in each eye for glaucoma. The cataract surgery so reduced the pressure in both eyes that I am now not taking any drops.
Yes, on the 28-300mm (a lens which never ceases to blow me away); read tomorrow's commentary.
Doesn't the yellow contrast so well with the white? Surprising!
7 Mar 2011 6:42pm
Outstanding! The layers of trees in the background are magnificent. The brown brush adds nice color.
It is definitely a Greeting Card.
I love the scene so much the equipment doesn't distract. But could be cloned out if made into a print or card.
Friends of mine who were in Florida returned home, just north of you. They weren't able to make that last 12 miles to their door because of weather. This must be the same weather they spoke about.
7 Mar 2011 8:36pm
@Barbara: It didn't last long.
Thanks Jack for both -I'll pass the info on to daughter Amy and wife Barbara...and I will certainly watch your blog tomorrow ;-)

This is beautiful, Jack. I love the greyish tones and how the yellow stands out
7 Mar 2011 11:12pm
such a great splash of color with the plows and the grasses. this has a beautiful romantic feel
7 Mar 2011 11:18pm
This a very beautiful winter scene. That yellow equipment seems to blend in a bit with the dried grasses.
7 Mar 2011 11:43pm
Your snow pictures are really beautiful!
8 Mar 2011 1:32am
a wonderful Winter landscape! love the detail and textures and the bits of beige and yellowish tones break up the snow very nicely!
8 Mar 2011 2:52am
Such a beautiful scene and the equipment look like little toys out in the field.
8 Mar 2011 3:10am
This is just picture perfect, snow plows and all! I love winter scenes. This is so gorgeous.
8 Mar 2011 3:40am
Snow-covered evergreens are always my favorite winterscape. Beautiful capture! I love the "punch" of color the yellow plows provide.
8 Mar 2011 3:50am
I bet that was a surprise to see. A lovely but cold ( Brrr) Winter shot.
8 Mar 2011 4:38am

8 Mar 2011 5:21am
I love this too. : ) ! They are both superb. The little plows - the big world. - excellent.
9 Mar 2011 2:19am
