I am not surprised that you missed your concert in Toronto! But something good has resulted from your misfortune - we can enjoy the "music" of this image. I hope you enjoy your trip (to the sun?) in Arizona. I am looking forward to seeing your photos. Are you the "teacher" or a "student" on the Elderhostel programme? Bon voyage, John

Breathtaking! Y.S.

Gr, Ed.

WOW it is been a long time that I have not seen a classic photo like this one. A masterpiece I love black and white and this one is a winner shot. Thanks for sharing. :)

Anne Wiese on March 9, 2008

Another great shot you took, Marilyn! It's incredible how much snow you got!! You must be tired of it, so I hope it's all gone when you come back from your trip! Greetings, Anne

Marilyn Whiteley on March 9, 2008

Many thanks, John, Ed, Jacques, Wallace, and Anne, for your kind words, and Ed and Jacques for the stars. I had no confidence in my ability to capture this scene, so I'm especially glad you think I succeeded.

The storm ended just a little later, and we awoke to this peaceful scene.

Thank you, John, for your flattering question, but I am definitely a student at this photography Elderhostel! Greetings, Marilyn

This is a wonderful nighttime shot, Marilyn! That fresh still-falling snow looks so peaceful, and the rendering in black and white was the perfect choice.

Cheers, Ryan

Let me add my kudos on this great, atmospheric photo. You have certainly had your share of snow this year.

Hello Marilyn Beautiful black and white shot! I agree with DerSIGGY, looks like Christmas, here too, and Easter is coming, something is wrong! :) I hope you enjoy your trip. I am looking forward to seeing your photos. Take care! Sylvie

Marilyn Whiteley on March 10, 2008

Thank you, Ryan, Hank, DerSIGGY, and Sylvie. I'm such a "color" person that it especially pleases me that I've posted a B&W photo that others like.

There's some more snow forecast, but we'll be on our way south-west. We're close to breaking the all-time winter snow record, and people are divided. Some are hoping it will happen, while others are crying, "Enough!!" Cheers, Marilyn

This is just lovely! Very well shot Marilyn I think it a hot chocolate next to the heater would be well in order when you you got in.


Marilyn Whiteley on March 11, 2008

Thanks for your kind words. I'll confess, Palmina: I cheated and took this through the outer door (the storm door)! A bit later I shoved it open (some snow had drifted in front of it) and got a nice shot without the extra layer of glass--but by then I had this one posted.


Evgenia Lepikhova on March 13, 2008

Dear Marilyn, wonderful B&W snowing winter picture. Cheers, Eva
