The last photos from our holiday visit with my son.

It was snowing like crazy so I took these while balancing an umbrella on my arm. A few more can be found here: https://plus.google.com/photos/107645155750397510807/albums/5963393520153408...CLXWhJ2azufHZw

As we don't get snow here I can't help but be fascinated by these well executed shots. Well done.

A very fine series - great job capturing the feeling of the snowy landscape and snow-covered birds! Those robins are certainly dedicated to protecting their food.

Thank you eaglem That old duck was my favourite. He seemed so relaxed and so much more snowy compared to the rest. It is neat to see.

Thank you Mole! I really loved the snowfall in these... the low contrast feel. It portrays for me what it was like being there.

Thank you Bob! High ISO and falling snow interrupting the sharpness of the image helped!

That fist one is a postcard Tess. The ducks look less than impressed but use to it I am sure. Very good series.

Gosh, these are pretty, Tess - especially the first and last ones. There's doubtlessly great beauty in winter - I'm fortunate, as a forum member, that I can see that beauty without frostbitten toes .
