Make it Snow




If nature won’t provide the snow Whitetail Resort will



Monday while driving my daily commute I noticed in the distance that Whitetail was making snow.



The stark contrast between light and shadow, mountains and sky is what drew me to pause and photograph this scene.

Looks like there's plenty of the white stuff atop that mountain. This is a beautiful photo.

Beautiful. The clouds with the sun rays coming down is gorgous and the mountain just adds more beauty to the picture.

I thought the contrast between the black clouds and the puffy white ones were absolutely beautiful. Then I enjoyed seeing the shape of that dark cloud. Finally, I spotted the snowy mountain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That made your photo marvelous in my eyes. I love snow. I should go get some new ones of Mt. Hood. . . welcome to the group!

Rays of sunlight through the clouds, contrasts between the sky and the snow and the shadow of the mountainside. I enjoyed very much.

Coy, great shot. I've been there a few times while I lived up there. It's not a bad ski mountain for the area, but that man-made snow can stick to you like glue if the temperature is right around freezing. Would love to see some shots of a snow-covered Sidling Hill when the morning sun is hitting it (hint!).

Priceless, absolutely breathtaking!

That is so pretty! How can anyone believe that God is not real when you see something so beautiful! Sometimes I think He makes moments like that just to see if I'm paying attention to what HE is still doing!
