Greetings Marilyn, There's a familiar sight, fresh snow on the ground signaling the arrival of winter. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Rich. When you look at the dramatic shots of the buildings, the tower, and the other big sights of Calgary, this is a very undramatic photo! But I was too busy with a meeting to get to "the sights," so I was very glad to find this quiet scene of early-season snow.

Cheers, Marilyn

Hi everyone. Winter has finally hit us here around the 40th parallel so I've got to smile when I see you at the higher latitudes or altitudes talking about the first snow of the season. I only put my heat on for the first time last night, and was wearing short sleeved shirts right up until yesterday. I'm still enjoying the fall colors.

You picture does have that first of winter, peaceful feel to it, Marilyn. Kidding aside, I really enjoyed it. Welcome back.

Thanks Bruce, Anne, and Hank. Come to think of it, I believe there is something special about early-season snow besides the fact that our eyes are surprised because they haven't seen snow for a while. In a setting like this, the vegetation is still crisp and unmatted, so there's lots of texture! Marilyn
