Gérard from Allauch, France

The snowfall is indeed plentiful: bravo because it is usually difficult to photograph without having a white screen devoid of details.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

Wow ! excellent capture and winter atmosphere ! Is it already snowy like that, or is it a picture of last winter ?

@Anna Cherer: Thanks, Anna. This is five winters ago in the middle of rural Ontario, where one doesn't expect to see a fender bender.

Libouton Martine from Bousval, Belgium

Shaun from Massachusetts, United States

Yes, a real joy Rick. I spent 2 hours stuck in the snow in Vermont last year. This is a superb winter image and a warning to all. 5*

@Shaun: Thanks for the stars, Shaun. There was one time when my band was on tour and we were forced to sit for hours on end due to an avalanche in the Rockies that closed off the highway. There were dozens and dozens of vehicles behind us as well, so we had to wait it out. Winter has its beauty but that isn't one of them.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

If we had that snow in Texas there would be fender benders on every street! We get so little snow, and are not equipped or prepared for driving in it. Still, I love a snow day once in awhile when we get one.

@B. Thomas: There is no shortage of people here, particularly in the metropolitan Toronto area, who act as if they've never driven in snow before. Even a dusting of it can cause hundreds of accidents. Ridiculous.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

Looks all to familiar! Really great image, though.

Morris David Taub from Montpellier, France

Holy cow, that's a storm. I don't miss them. Happy to live in a slightly warmer, almost snow free area these days. What a great image.

@Morris David Taub: I love the four seasonal variety here, but when the snow comes down relentlessly for weeks in a row, it gets a bit much. Thanks !

omid from mashhad, Iran

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Things aren't looking too good in the snowy North. I haven't had ti drive in snow for so long that I don't enjoy it at all. That's a lot of snow coming down!

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

A fantastic composition. You can really feel the cold. It looks like a blizzard. I am not looking forward to the snow!

The drama of winter captured and transmitted fantastically. Terrific image.
