It's too soon! Nobody's ready! And no, that gated community is not where I live :)

Thanks for sharing with some of us who won't see snow! The first snow, when it settles on brilliant foliage, is the very best there is.

Really like the first, Linda. Wish I could get down that low. The birch trees seem to dance with their veils, and the leading fence line down to the burning bush (?) is a great contrast and delight for the eye amidst all that white. The harvested fields in the distance really round out a suburban/rural landscape photo; nothing encroaches. In the third photo, on the far right , I see a tiny Santa doll hidden for searching eyes. Very happy photos. Matt

We received some here on the Olympic Peninsula on Sat & Sun, not much maybe a inch each day. I didn't get out with the camera. Really like that last image Linda.

Very pretty, but does get old fast :) All in all, I think I do prefer four seasons. Thanks Minnie!

Neat you enjoyed the glimpse of distance in #1, Matt. I think it's an orchard, though :| Too funny about the Santa doll; I think I see it! Regarding low angle, I have a rotating LCD on my Lumix, which is very handy; however, this was shot from the car and the lane rises up a bit. Appreciate your visit!

Thanks Ernst! I was watching Seahawks on tv this afternoon and noticed some spitting white stuff in Seattle.

Oh my, is this a sign of what's to be expected this coming season? I love to see the snow, while I also love to see it go. All images have been beautifully done Linda. Thanks for an early reminder.

I was hoping we'd get a pass this year after all the ice, sleet, cold and snow Yakima received last year. Days on end of just overcast and fog can be depressing, but not as much as falling and breaking a wrist! I'm very glad you enjoyed the photos, Dave. Thanks for your time, and hope your upcoming season has "just enough" for your tastes :)

All three are lovely, but what is that white stuff? :x

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
