Nice weather capture, Dolores! A very common sight for me this time of year. in fact I'd probably title it "daily commute' :-) #17597

Dolores Neilson level-deluxe

Hi Gary!! Yes, I would imagine this would be common for you!! I think your title is excellent! This was captured today...our 4th storm in the Northeast thus far! Quite an aberration for us..I don't think I've ever experienced this much snow since my transplant here from Northern (northern tip) Maine. Gary...many thanks for kindly "stopping by" and taking time to comment! Happy day! #37131

Carol Engstrom level-deluxe

This is a great shot, Dolores. I hope you were able to get it from your driveway, or better yet your kitchen window. But I suspect you were probably out driving in this! #37144

Dolores Neilson level-deluxe bet I was out in this!! I have to work really hard for photo ops at this time of year! I'm safe though...I have a brand new 4x4...plenty of airbags...and I stay clear away from other vehicles!! The vehicle approaching in the image? Was a UPS truck!! He stopped and asked what I was doing and if I needed any help....what a nice guy! Who says there aren't any more nice people! I appreciate your comment, Carol! Thank you!! #37151

Cees F. De With level-deluxe

This is a fantastic Shot Doloros; you captured the weather effects beautifully. It even gives me a cold now...... #37167

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe

Very nice, Dolores! I really like this one. Gives me the chills, brrrrrr.. #37200

Patricia A. Cale level-deluxe

Great shot, Dolores. I feel like I'm standing out in the snow. I can even fell the cold wind! :) #37236

Robert Pranagal level-deluxe

I can almost feel the snow on my face!
Great image, Dolores. It looks so real, that it makes me shiver...
Great choice of shutter speed too.

Dolores Neilson level-deluxe

Hi Cees!! Thank you so much!! My snow flakes are much sharper on my file on my system but when I upload a file here, I notice the image becomes "soft". I'll ask Jim about that. I appreciate that you extended your time to comment, Cees! Happy day!

Hi Carolyn!! Thank you, daahhhhling! I can imagine that you don't see days like this often...what with all the luscious sunsets I see from your way! I appreciate your comment and that that it made you feel chilled! ;?)

Greetings to you, Pat!! I value your supportive and approving comment on this image! Thanks so very much for your kindness! Happy shooting!

Robert!! Greetings from the United States to Poland! I'm delighted that the image evoked chilliness and a sense of being there!! It was VERY cold and windy when I shot this and I was glad to be back in my warm vehicle. I waited until a vehicle came in my frame and was thankful for his lights! Thanks so much, Robert....I appreciate your kind comments always! #37534

Looks like it was a wet snow! Is it still there? Great story with this photo. #38186

Dolores Neilson level-deluxe

Hi Shelley...Thanks soooo much! Yep, the snow is still on the ground. It kind of froze a crust and hard to move if it wasn't done immediatley after the snowfall. Appreciate you "stopping by", lady!

Happy shooting! #38245

Superb image.
this would have been quite good without the vehicle, it's exceptional with it.
I can see why this did so well in the contest.
Congratulations, Dolores #66354

Dolores Neilson level-deluxe

HI Bill!! My generous of you to comment on my work! I value your time and kindness more than you know! This was a UPS truck...when he saw me in the middle of the road in a blizzard, he thought I was stranded and offered to help. I thought it was so kind of him to offer assistance. He must have thought I needed psychiatric help ! #66387
