Old Man Winter is grumpy in my part of the world, bringing frostbite temperatures and no shortage of snowfall. It still has its own special beauty, though, even when getting tossed around ;-)

It's the same panache as a jet ski, in a little colder ......

@Gérard: I like "panache"... I will think of this word the next time our region is getting belted with snowfall :-)

franz from Baden, Austria

Beautifully dynamic compo and excellent monochrome presentation! Pretty soon I'll know 'real' winter only from pictures and stories of the past ...

@franz: I am still enjoying the winter dynamics in Toronto and Elora, my two homes, but if you ask me my thoughts in another month... ha ha. Thanks, Franz.

What dynamic action captured here. We too have frostbite temps!

@Ruthiebear: The cold snap just ended yesterday and now they are calling for rainfall at some point soon. What a crazy winter ! Thanks, Ruthie.

Irene from San Francisco, United States

Cool shot. You people have to deal with snow. We, on the other hand are dealing with rain and it will be worse tonight. Tomorrow we should be having showers. Stay safe Rick.
