Walking in a winter wonderland
Lens: DA* 16-50 Camera: K5 iis Photo Location: Sherwood Park, Alberta 
Posted By: daacon, 11-19-2013, 01:32 PM

Last week I could have racked some leaves from the front yard (most of the initial snow had melted). The last few days winter has put her foot down she's here for a while. Don't mind the snow , it's the dipping temperatures but looking good for the weekend so there's hope !

On Thursday last week there was no snow bank , before we walk we have to shovel

#2 The main roads are ok slow traffic (luckily I don't have to experience that) off ramps are pure ice. In fact I head a great comparison today the traffic in Edmonton is slower than the Oilers rebuild ouch !


But winter is not without it's beauty - if you want to see some of Alberta go to youtube and look up 'remember to breathe Alberta" Some great video commercials for all seasons.

#3 Next two are just some local walkways across the street from us.

the snow really does add to the beauty of the land, the temps must warm up a bit to melt off last weeks snow. I see you have your priorities clearing off an area to shoot some hoops. thanks buddy for sharing this thing you call "snow".

You beat me to it! You failed to mention the 60% chance of rain we have on Friday, though. I think I was on vacation the last time it sprinkled here... a month ago.

Hi Daacon

You are so lucky to have all this snow, where I live we never get even one flake of the stuff.
Snow seasons have an attraction all their own. I can just imagine coming home from a walk
in the snow and then settle down in front of an open fire place with a glass of Gluehwein.

Your pictures give me this feeling. Thanks.

Greetings

Beautiful photos, but I'm glad we don't have that yet in the Twin Cities (MN). I'm enjoying the warmer than normal November so far. Supposed to get maybe an inch on Thursday.
