Suburban Wonderland by MushroomMagic Suburban Wonderland by MushroomMagic
Snow is a rare thing nowadays here in Washington State, so when we were blessed with some today, I couldn't resist. This is my first time shooting snow, and what better way to break into this field then by shooting it at night?

Great job. It was really strange to have snow here in WA.

I first noticed the footprints in the tire tracks. Made me laugh some.
Excellent lighting... you captured the colors very well.

I really like the angle the camera is on for the light and the tree. It makes the tree almost look fake or .. the entire scene look like candy. Nice picture.

Nice. I like the colors.

It kinda makes me dizzy. I kinda feel like Dorothy in a Tornado. The longer I look at it the more my head turns sideways.

"Snow is a rare thing nowadays here in Washington State."
You know there is a whole Eastern side of the state where snow is not uncommon... Darn Westerners, acting like Spokanites don't exist ;)

Excellent photo, I love the angle the photo is taken, it looks like you are falling...

*cries* I want snow!!!!! I can't wait to graduate and move to Colorado where there's snow every year (and not once every 10 like in southern Louisiana)...and they have mountains too...and seasons. From living here you'd never know what those things are D:
Even though snow is cold, this shot looks so cozy!!!
