I can feel it on my face and get shivers...
Love the title of this post! Not to mention the images. You could have used these to illustrate "Cold Mountain" by Charles Frazier. Nice.
I really love the painterly feel of that second image.As much as I am fed up with snow, and not particularly enamoured of it in the first place, I do like seeing pictures of it falling. A polka dot world cannot fail to delight, at least visually.
Fantastic photos! They really put forth the feeling of winter and make me so happy that I don't ever have to deal with it unless I want to...i
You've really caught winter at its worst--compounded by mountain landscape. This is one of those paradoxes art often achieves: the art is beautiful, though the subject is not. Also, I'm becoming more and more the sap that worries about the wildlife. I 'spect they know how to endure there a little better than I would, but I keep thinking, "It shouldn't be that hard. What did they do to deserve all that work?" That's just a little anthropomorphic, I suppose . . .
Brrrrrrrrrrr . . . As always the images you have captured provoke all the senses. I particularly like the second image. The wind-chill must have been severe. Just looking at these photos has reduced my body temperature. Nonetheless, I would have enjoyed standing next to the warmth behind the camera.
I have never seen snowing like this. Hope this really is winter's grand finale so that you can enjoy the beautiful spring pretty soon.
Just beautiful - shapes against the winter monochrome.
The colors (the febrile colors of a winter dream) are like a distant melody that one strains to hear.
if i wasn't afraid to drive on ice I'd be up there with you
It's beautiful! I loved the way you captured it. It really gives of a sense of movement(as in wind blown snow and trees). I love it!
my last post echoes this, though without the splendour of the mountains... (and when i first saw your photos, i had no idea i would experience snow again this year :-)
