First time that I have seen a "Rescued Snowman"! Fantastic storytelling image Jack! #10461371

MELODIE C. ROBERTS 12/12/2012 3:41:18 AM

Snowmen, like clowns, kind of freak me out
This one would REALLY mess me up ;0)

Fabulous capture Jack #10461379

Carolyn M. Fletcher 12/12/2012 3:44:17 AM

Well, Melodie, you can come to my house! We don't even have snow, let alone snowmen.
He's a great conversation piece for sure! #10461393

Wow...Mel has MY aversion for clowns (and one tried to molest me when I was a day camp counselor about 50 years ago). But SNOWMEN are HARMLESS, Mel! This one is spectacular, and your shot, Jack, shows vividly just how enormous he is! Bravo! But where is he stored for the REST of the year? I wonder. #10461415

Love the story behind this great image! The biggest snowman I have ever seen! Love it! #10461516

Cool find! Art is everywhere. #10461538

Lynn M. Whitt 12/12/2012 5:20:57 AM

cool capture. #10461572

Monnie Ryan 12/12/2012 7:14:43 AM

Whoa Nelly! Glad he's up your way - if he were around here, I'm afraid somebody would have taken potshots at him by now. Those inflatable displays have a way of getting shot down rather quickly. #10461673

a cool find! #10461727

Mike Clime 12/12/2012 11:15:18 AM

Cool capture and glad that they rescued it, Jack! #10461903

Paul E. Earl 12/12/2012 12:52:35 PM

WOW! That's one huge snowman. Fabulous image. Glad it's your neighbourhood though! #10462023

John Connolly 12/12/2012 1:49:05 PM

Crikey! What a huge snowman, Jack! I can image people coming from near and far to view this giant! #10462098

Barbara Waldoch 12/12/2012 2:59:02 PM

Bigger is better, yeah!
This couldn't be shot in Australia, because he is smoking :-)

I was about 3m away, in the kitchen. He wrecked my flowers and didn't take a bath. #10462170

Kay E. Mahoney 12/12/2012 5:20:12 PM

Nice capture, Jack. He sure is a big one. Love how the trees show up in front of him. #10462324

David Phalen 12/12/2012 6:24:28 PM

A fabulous low light capture of this amazing rescued snowman!! #10462407

Rona L. Schwarz 12/12/2012 6:31:43 PM

WOW! I've never seen a Frosty like this before, Jack! What an amazing sight and what fun to have in the neighborhood! Love your POV and scale - and the interesting story! #10462414

Robert K. Bemus 12/12/2012 10:56:33 PM

Great shot, Jack!! My snowman won't produce such a ginormous electric bill ;-) #10462545

Avril Mrs Young 12/13/2012 2:07:44 AM

Yes I can see he brings a lot of JOY to all that visit your street, terrific capture, glad he was saved.. #10462590

Nadia Paul 12/13/2012 2:57:15 AM

He certainly makes you smile - wonderful capture Jack! #10462616

Kirsten Kiki Kjaer 12/13/2012 7:16:46 AM

That IS a big snowman, Jack. Well done in capturing him so well in the dark. #10462877

Agnes Fegan 12/15/2012 6:25:46 AM

LOL, this Frosty is huge! I hope they have a pump to inflate him! #10465126

Description

He's in my neighbor's backyard and I shot him from just outside my yard's side gate, 75 feet away from him . Used the telephone & electric lines to give an idea of his GINORMOUS SIZE 40 something feet tall or more.
If you were wondering YES HE IS A TRAFFIC STOPPER !! As Christmas approaches cars full of kids clog the street in front of his home & mine as well as the street between our homes. All
wanting to see & get a picture of the SUPER SNOWMAN . He was once a commercial display
who was rescued when he was going to be sent
to the Dump .
Makes for LOTS OF JOY FOR KIDS As well as EVERYONE ELSE !!!
