Looks like another world, for sure. It's unbelievable, and the delicate morning altocumulus (I think) clouds really soften it.

Wow Irene, this is amazing! I was going to shoot the 2ft high drift across the street from my house but this puts it to shame. LOL
Perfect, especially with those clouds.

This is such an amazing image. It looks similar to a huge ocean wave, don't you think so?

I feel you have a prize winner on your hands here, Irene! Very original and as always top notch!

It looks like something out of a movie. What neat shapes the wind carved for this great capture. It looks cold even with the blue skies and sun shining on this snow sculture. It reminds me of white chocolate shavings.

Was just wondering if this snow is gone now. I heard Colorado has a lot of snow somewheres and they are still skiing.

What an amazing, gallery you have, Patricia! I've not ever even seen snow, so to see it like that is just phenominal! Especially on a prairie! I thought that snow fell mainly around mountains. Your other images are beautiful too. A lovely slice of prairie life and wildlife.

Thank you everyone.

This picture is a year old but a blizzard will be moving into our area tonight; I hope the drifts will be smaller this time.
