Very cool lo-fi shot. Reminds me of 8mm Tri-X film stock. Beautifully done.

ambiance lugubre !!
22 Dec 2008 5:24am
Looks exactly like the weather report that we have been getting from your neck of the woods. Hope that you are able to hole up.

@john4jack: It's been interesting trying to get around to say the least, and no one has a clue how to drive in this stuff ;)
Wonderful blustery scene. It looks so cold.
22 Dec 2008 5:37am
A lovely, dreamlike image.
22 Dec 2008 5:40am
And you are dead on right with the reality and the quality of this photo. Certainly a depiction of how winter should be. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you! =D
22 Dec 2008 5:56am
There's no doubt about it, winter is here to stay. Not sure if I'd rather have the falling snow or the bits of icy rain and chilling winds that we have now.
22 Dec 2008 6:14am
@Sean: I'll take the snow, thank you very much, at least that is manageable. Thanks Sean!
lol my husband just went out to get smokes, he says it's crazy out there!! beautiful shot tho, i LOVE it
22 Dec 2008 6:16am
Nice winter atmosphere....
22 Dec 2008 6:29am
Beautiful photograph in b&w I love the texture and the composition. I also enjoy the perspective looking down the street - stay warm!
22 Dec 2008 6:35am
le bonheur ouaté de la neige ......... superbe ambiance !!!
22 Dec 2008 6:55am
Wow, cool shot. I really like the grainy old feel to it, gives it so much added atmosphere. The cold snowed down cars leading the eye to the lights of a car coming towards you.
22 Dec 2008 7:02am
Perfect winters day image bc:-)
22 Dec 2008 7:14am
I really love your snowland's street shots.:-)
22 Dec 2008 7:15am
Grainy effect provides excellent mood!
22 Dec 2008 7:34am
Fantastic mood, and I just love when it snows like this :-)
22 Dec 2008 8:35am
Your minute part of reality always touches me... Here I can hardly see, hardly hear (so much snow) but I totally FEEL - and that's the most important thing, in every season of Life, isn't it ?
22 Dec 2008 8:46am
I really enjoy looking at this beautiful photo but I'm glad I don't have to witness it anymore ... brr, so cold! :) Love the noise you've added and the B&W, brings even more atmosphere to the photo!
22 Dec 2008 8:54am

It's just Marvelous :)
22 Dec 2008 11:08am
This looks so romantic and beautiful - so different from the weather we are experiencing right now.
22 Dec 2008 11:25am
Another wonderful capture that does not only attract my attention at the very first second but keeps drawing me into it and moves me to feel... Inspiring image and quote... Thanks Sharon!
22 Dec 2008 11:32am
Makes me shiver…. It does capture that moment well. But please don’t stay too long in the road :) Nice image.
22 Dec 2008 12:20pm
Excellent shot here. I love the mood and the atmosphere is awesome!
22 Dec 2008 12:27pm
I love the mood you have done !
22 Dec 2008 12:28pm
You've create a wonderful atmosphere to the image which really reinforces the cold, bleak nature of the scene. And yet, so darn beautiful at this time of year, too.
Our clan in Sidney, BC phoned last night and reported six foot drifts which is rare there, and the kids are loving it ha ha
Sadly, for us this Christms they promise overcast and miserable!!
22 Dec 2008 12:48pm
@EYES WIDE SHUT: We don't usually get this kind of weather here, and it's usual to have cold, overcast and rain. But I'm very happy with our cold and snowy day. The driving conditions of course leave something to be desired, but we all learn to manage.
Thank you for you kind words and visitis...and I wish you a snowy day on Christmas :)
I know just the feeling. That fuzziness when the snowflakes are blobbing on your eyelashes.
22 Dec 2008 1:52pm
quite like this one--really like how the snow becomes the grain...or is that the other way round?
22 Dec 2008 1:55pm
this one is so beautiful and somehow "warm" even with the snow! I love the pp
22 Dec 2008 2:00pm
Very good moody athmosphere. B&W is the very best here.
22 Dec 2008 2:04pm
I like how you add magic to all your photos ;)
22 Dec 2008 2:24pm
Nice winter shot. I like the grain in this photo.
Today on Montreal, 25 cm! Merry Christmas!!!
22 Dec 2008 3:26pm
very beautiful BC!!! like a movie still or a childhood memory -- such an amazing ambience!! a suburban winter wonderland!!! faaabulous!!!
22 Dec 2008 4:56pm
What a beautiful capture of reality. Wonderful.
22 Dec 2008 5:35pm
Love the atmosphere in this, great shot.
Nice pic Sharon
22 Dec 2008 6:03pm
Wow!! Thats some snow! Love the mood and the grain...lovely :)
22 Dec 2008 6:35pm
Love the washed out look to this! A great sense of cold comes from it.
22 Dec 2008 7:26pm
Fabulous view -- like a dream or altered reality.
22 Dec 2008 7:32pm
interesting quote - you've certainly accomplished that here.
22 Dec 2008 7:48pm
22 Dec 2008 8:51pm
Hasn't it just been a blast.......not!! Looks like we are going to get some melting now. Having mini avalanches off the huge pines. Thud, thud, thud. ;>))
22 Dec 2008 10:02pm
Beautiful shot, Sharon! Make me feel like I am in this frame and being dragged by the moving car towards the other side and out of it.
And at the same time this image brings memories from my childhood, when in order to get a clear picture on the TV screen you had to bang on it for some time. Well, here I would not want to clear the grain. Let the snow fall...
23 Dec 2008 12:48am
The blur has created a more desolate feeling, we've had three storms already, and winter has just started.
23 Dec 2008 1:57am
Merry Christmas to you!
23 Dec 2008 2:58pm
Very realistic of a snow storm. Makes me feel as if I'm in it.
24 Dec 2008 4:47am
great snow scene and a wonderful image!
24 Dec 2008 9:43pm
Superb! The repetition of the streetlights does it for me!
29 Dec 2008 10:20pm
Lovely and evocative.

23 Jan 2009 2:22pm
With most other people we would say that this picture isn't sharp... When viewing it on your blog it's just "style". Amazing.
27 Jun 2009 6:23pm
