The Spokane River in the midst of the current very cold period. We were driving to a friend's house. I was riding along and made this drive-by shot.
I hope you like it as a Sunday post.
Good morning Don,
The sight of snow on the landscape fills me with joy. It is more than beautiful. The pine trees left and right, including the snow in the foreground form a beautiful border around the whole view. The mist including the amazing water reflections and shadows are excellent for expression. The building in the background is a very nice addition. The light blue touch supports the general view positively. The image is pure romance and I like it very well. More than 5 stars ************** For several days the outside temperature is warmer and more pleasant. However, it is raining in between. Yesterday was the outside temperature is 9.5 ° degrees Celsius plus. This morning it is 4.5 degrees Celsius plus. I tried this morning at 7:30 German time clock to leave a comment under your picture. First I had to connect to your blog. When I tried to send the comment, the connection was lost. The web page of aminus was displayed with a reference to a fault. It frustrates me. In between I had in the last days the same problems in other blogs and my own. It was all a bit chaotic in recent days. I try to send an e-Mail today. Have a nice Sunday and all the best including your family and friends. Thank you very much for your nice comments in recent days.
Dear greetings Christel, Detlev and Ranger.

This is a wonderful scene! we had a similar occurrence on the pond by our house last week, I so wished I has my camera at the time.. Thanks for capturing what I couldn't, even more beautifully! Miss following your blog, I hope to get a little better at this in the near future. Hope all is well!

Superb shot! Nice colours, lighting and reflections...
I like the trees on the left and right, framing the image. The cool blue tones as well as the rising steam reinforce the winter-ness of the image.

amazing scene! very good composition and excellent light! the steam rising off the surface looks great and adds extra interest to this scene! i also like the slight blue tinge to the snow as it enhanced the cold temperature...
