Shadow Shot Sunday - Snowy season shadows



Obviously, we are full of snow this winter season - nothing huge at one time, but an endless (or it feels like that :) series of 6-9 inch (15-22 cm) snowfalls since December. With a hint of freezing rain to add an icy crust that inhibits melting...

Yet, for Shadow Shot Sunday 2, I revert to snowy scenes from 9-10 February 2013 and that 40in/ 102cm snowfall, a record in our small city of Ansonia. With that much depth, and with the snowy canvas of snow, shadows fall nicely upon the land. And thus make for a fun post. With the hope that melting and warmth arrive concurrently and Spring begins!

Our snow finally melted. I began to think it would be with us the whole winter season which would be extremely unusual for Utah. You got more than your share of snow this year.

If you've too much snow, send some to Sochi! They're running low!

Ah, but all that moisture surely must make all the plants and trees happy and for an even greener summer! SUmmer-remember that? : )

Gorgeous light and shadow on the snow. And love the "snowburst" in the last photo.

Oh, Patti are you serious, enough? :)

This winter has been really strange in Finland. Before December almost no snow, it stayed some weeks but now it's plus degrees and cloudy...and the forecast is similar for next 10 days. I'm lucky to be in Málaga!

OMG! still oozing with snow overthere?

Lucky we are here, today, it feels Spring now. +7degrees and sunshine? Can't be better.

Enjoy the best of it, Bro?

Hugs to you both.

...those post office trucks, being out in the snow and in deep shadows...that looks mighty cold.

The shadows are lovely, the snow, well, not so much (at least in this desert dweller's eyes).

This winter does seem to just keep pounding us. Of course, we've had more of the frigid cold than massive amounts of snow. Hope you melt things off soon.
