Greetings Marilyn, I see you have gotten your fair share of snow looking at your pictures. When there is that much snow life becomes an adventure if you slow down to enjoy it. I love the patterns of the drifting on the window pane. Very nice. Hope you enjoyed your trip through this amazing winter wonder land.

Spettacolare! Preferisco il tepore della mia Sicilia. Grazie del commento. Toti

It is the second floor, Marilyn? Best regards. Eva

Oh God! Incredible! :O!!!

Marilyn Whiteley on February 6, 2008

Thanks, Rich, Salvatore Clemente, Eva, and eme jota. I couldn't resist taking and posting this shot simply because it seemed so spectacular! This was a doorway to the courtyard of our hotel in Quebec. There were some ice sculptures in the courtyard--you can see the top of one poking up toward right. But for some reason, nobody was going out to look at them!!!

(There was no problem using the hotel's main doors.) Cheers, Marilyn

Hello Marilyn, this is a great shot! I wonder how the window glass can stand the snow pressure.

Greetings Andreas

Marilyn Whiteley on February 6, 2008

Thanks, Andreas. I hope the owners have thought about that!

Greetings, Marilyn

Spectacular photo Marilyn. I've already seen that, but, in the mountain, never in the city. Thanks for sharing those images. Greetings. Yves

Marilyn Whiteley on February 7, 2008

Thank you, Yves. I was surprised to see all those layers! Greetings, Marilyn

I understand it already now, that why not to see the snowdrops :-)Very beautiful photo, Marilyn !Greetings, Tamás

Lovely photo, Marilyn, with beautiful light. You were fortunate to have nice-looking buildings showing between the snowdrift and the icicles. I think these buildings add a lot to the flavor of the scene.


Marilyn Whiteley on February 7, 2008

Thanks, Tamás and Ryan. Yes, spring flowers are a long way off, Tamás! And, Ryan, I hadn't thought about the buildings, but you're absolutely right!

Marilyn Whiteley on February 8, 2008

Even being there, I found it hard to believe my eyes, Arthur!

As I commented on another photo, Pam, I'm afraid I'm perpetuating the stereotype of Canada as the "frozen North"! But who could resist these photo ops?? This was a doorway right across the hall from the meeting room of my husband's conference. I'm not making this up!

Lilypon on February 9, 2008

LOL The only way we could avoid that stereotype Marilyn is not to show any pictures for months and months! ;D (hmmmmmm maybe we should take twice as many pics this summer and keep posting them all winter) :)

Oh it is a good one, Marilyn. All the history of this winter's snow falls is found in the layers:). Very very impressive!

Greetings, Inessa

Marilyn Whiteley on February 9, 2008

Good idea, Pam! Except that then they'd miss out on the beauty of it all (well, of some of the time)!

And Inessa, thank you for your comment. Yes, the history is all there!

Greetings, Marilyn
