Congratulation on a well deserved blue. The color of the house makes me think the folks who love there are just delightful and have the good sense to paint their home in such a bright color to stave off the starkness of the white that surrounds them. It makes me miss the snow.

Congrats, Paul. Excellent stuff. What I'm most impressed with is that you were able to use a fast-enough shutter speed and timed it just right so you caught this scene while the sun was up.

I would go crazy out here - definitely looks silent and very white. Beautiful, though. Voted earlier. Top three.

That red house in a great winter landscape looks just amazing. It's a beautiful accent. I like the subtle shadows on the mountains and the way the snow looks. Lovely picture!
