  3. I like these images too, where the world looks as though it has been coated in sugar! The tree that pinhole mentioned, I believe that the sloping down branches serve a purpose. That is, they are meant to allow heavy snow to fall off, especially if the tree is high up the mountain.

    Great photos!

  5. ahhh your killing me man! Your posts get me itching to grab the sled but alas unless I want to have Joe tow me with the jeep on gravel I’m just going to have to study patience a bit. Beautiful shots. I love the depth to the first one… there are always so many layers to your landscape shots and the snow really brings them out. Nice work!

  6. Thanks, Bernie! Yes, snow changes any scene. In a few months it will start getting tiresome , but now it looks fresh and crisp.

  7. Pinhole.

    Yup, the little fir took on a load! Not the first time though: it’ll be back to normal in a few days. Wish I could get our Christmas tree to look like that!

  8. Janet,

    The resiliency of these trees is an amazing thing, isn’t it? I often think of the things they go through. We hit 106ยบ one day this summer here, and we usually have a night or two or -30ยบ in the winter. The trees somehow put up with that and flourish!

  9. Adam,

    It’s a photogenic world out there when there is new snow. I love to see the snow on the trees. Wish I could add the dimensions of depth and temperature though!

  10. Lori,

    We haven’t had a lot of snow yet either, but another thousand feet higher there’s over a foot more. Today I drove over a small divide not far from here and was it ever icy up there! Thank goodness for four wheel drive!

    The spot where I took the first photo was as far up as I thought it prudent to drive. I sure wish I could have gone just two more miles!
