  2. That’s a nice snowfall. We got snow today – half of one inch. That’s a real big deal in the UK – it makes the headlines!

    • It was very nice, Andy…and good for you with your snow…did you manage to capture any images of the rare event? Hopefully everyone made it safely out and home again….

  3. Tree igloos? or the one a little left of center looks like someone in a cape hugging the tree…. what fun, but it still looks too cold for the likes of me.

    • I was grasping, Gunta…thought about cloaked, blanketed, snuggled…um…settled for shrouded…and yes, that one does appear to be a person in a cape hugging the tree. It was fun, too…and cold. 🙂

      • The important thing is that you’re having fun being out there in all that white stuff! 🙂

  4. That’s odd. I wonder what caused it. Drifting?

    • I would have to guess, Allen, but I would say it probably has something to do with the winds up there in the mountains.

    What an interesting photo. I’ve never seen snow mounded up around the base of trees before.
    Makes an interesting composition (as opposed to just tree trunks in the snow).

    Beautiful composition. The piled up snow at the base of the trees suggest skirts , perhaps a whirling dervish. 🙂

    • Thank you, Elmediat…and those are nice thoughts, too…whirling dervishes out in the canyons of Utah…very nice thoughts indeed. 🙂
