Christopher Budny level-addict 5/28/2010 12:37:16 PM

Thanks, Dominick; the original version it turns out, had a visible blue cast to the snow, which I'd failed to notice at the time. #8649894

You can keep the chill -- though I'll probably be singing another tune in a month or so. This is beautiful, Chris, but I don't miss the season. #8653397

You do such beautiful work.

Thank you very much, Merna & Laura!
Glad you found it, and enjoyed it, Laura! I sure would love for us to get another snowfall like the one shown here... it was a record-setter, and I missed most of it because my job was in NYC that year. #9941581

And now it has been chosen by Jim Mioke himself as one of his favorite photos in all of the 20 years of the club! Check your e-mail Chris. I sent you a notice. (If you didnt receive it let me know. I might has an old e-mail address for you.) #11444712

A splendid image, Chris! It certainly deserves to be "Best of the Best!!" #11445030

Christopher Budny level-addict 3/10/2016 12:59:55 PM

Thanks Melinda -- but I don't think the results have been announced for that yet -- and I don't think I saw this one in the set of "All Time Editor Picks" so I don't think it is in the running at this point ;)
Still, a great favorite of mine, too! #11445108
