I love this composition of textures and shapes. And I believe those are tracks of a small animal passing by? Nicely done!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks. I've done a whole series on tracks but have not put it here.

The snow assumes some fascinating shapes and the footprints give it scale. Well done!
Mary MacADNski: All week I've tried to show some of those shapes and the beauty of snow. Sometimes the beauty wears thin after a couple hours of shoveling. "It's only January", I keep telling myself, "embrace the beauty". Yeah, right!

Back just in time for the beautiful white stuff and you know how much I like those shots. Lovely capture Mary.
No pic for me today I have been having computer gliches hence my tardy posting and visits.
Mary MacADNski: I was wondering where you were. I thought of you with every one of these I put up in this series. There are more from earlier this week.

Good capture
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Vintage.
Ah.. Joni Mitchell; always a favourite. Great shapes in this, mary, and I like the twinkles on the snow.
Mary MacADNski: She's one of my favorites too. It's a winter wonderland here.
sculture di panna.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, it is like cream.

It looks so pure and clean. I love the way snow makes objects take on a mysterious shape.

Mary MacADNski: Would you believe there is nothing under that snow. That drift is beside the bank of trees that stopped the wind, that piled the snow, where the wind shaped the drift with is continuous blow.

Awww - lucky you. Where is the snowman?
Mary MacADNski: You need wet snow for snowmen. This is very dry and fluffy.

Just like glitter Mary, wonderful shot.smile
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Tracy. Sunshiny days are the best for showing the beauty of snow.
always worth a listen to Willie Nelson. Goes well with this picture Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I was running out of songs for this series of snow.

A sculpture of Dumbo laying in the snow with the 'toes' of the front feet steepled - with some imagination.

Great picture - and then there was only one set of footprints in the snow.
Mary MacADNski: I love an imagination. I know it's imagination and not real as it is too cold for Dumbo here.
Wonderful capture Mary. Just looks like an ice cream!
Mary MacADNski: It does, Richard. Thanks.

Incredibly nitid. Wonderful
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Albert.
Lovely shapes here Mary: in a way I wish it was like this here in the UK
Mary MacADNski: It's very pretty sometimes but it can be a pain too.

Makes our snow look like a light sprinkling.

You've done a great job controlling both the white balance and the exposure with all that white in there.

Someone's lost their diamonds, though!
Mary MacADNski: I find it very difficult to get the diamonds. I have been trying.
