Hello Bob! Amazing lightness. Original minimalistic composition. Interesting landscape. Very good picture. Well done!

Wow - it is really windy here today and people are panicking - but 24 inches of snow - England stops at 2 inches!
A very moody shot - creates a wonderful sense of place. A deceptively good composition - it looks casual - but as usual is obviously well thought out.

The slight sepia treatment of this picture without a true black or white adds to the visual interest of this composition and overall 'gray' feeling.

A beautifully composed landscape with a mood of isolation and desolation. An amazing contrast to what followed in the next few days. Each has its own beauty.

Hola Sr. Bob.
I am sorry to hear the bad news in Your town. a lot of snow makes big problems. 24 inches of snow it is to much. but the sun soon will be shining again.
Nice photo of this place.

What interesting lighting - feels like the end of a long day to me.
I like what Mikolaj says - minimalistic. In that mind that always translates into a sort of elegance.

Another very atmospheric shot Bob!
Simple but powerful composition.
Great contrast which is enhanced by the B+W medium.
Yeah like James said, if there's a light flurry of snow here then everything closes and we go into hibernation! ;)
But 2 ft of snow!!! You must have to wade and swim whenever you want to go somewhere!
Thanks for sharing this Bob :)

We're awaiting the storm too, the second in a week! - Very bleak but beautiful view of the plains. I like the few trees in the foreground and the forest at the horizon. We often grump about the weather here too but without the seasons and the ongoing changes in weather and nature life may be rather dull, don't you think? (The snowdrops are just beginning to appear in the garden!)
TFS and kind regards, Ulla

Well my dear friend, this image has atmosphere and composition that is so evident and telling. Your words too match the image, cabin fever could be next with weather such as you are experiencing. I am so glad that we have you here each day.

Sorry for the big delay, but i had internet problems and i also left town today for a while :(
If it's desolation you wanted to show here...you did a fantastic job! :)
Yes...i know the feeling, my friend. We had beautiful sunny days almost all week today...perfect for photography. Then i started having some small problems with the internet connection and an opportunity came for a small trip to some nearby mountains...a really lovely place otherwise. Of course, why did i even think it would be different: almost totally overcast :(( I too was desolated...
This is another very nice black & white photo from you, Bob!
I really like the strong contrast here between the tree silhouettes and the BG. Very nice details - clear and crisp - as well as good control of the exposure.
I'm not sure on the compo, though...perhaps i would have tried to zoom in closer to those nice 2 trees...but this is a matter of personal taste anyway :)
Good work and hope snowing takes a break in Washington...but on the other hand i would be inclined to let nature "do her thing"...as you said: she's always right :)
Cheers and TFS

The black and white treatment creates an almost stark atmosphere.It definitely gives a cool and isolated feeling.
Very well composed ,the contrast is very good.
taken from a very good POV.
