This is a 1931 Ford Truck at a nearby farm. I pass by this truck on my way to work every day and waited for the right moment to capture this picture. The snow was falling fast and I was doing everything possible to keep my camera from getting wet. I shot this with a towel over my head while trying to keep my son out of the background. I know it's a bit white, but that is what I was going for in an attempt to show snow all around.

Nice capture - Love the simplicity of it all and the snow just adds some great texture and life - Would have been nice to see the roof edge not blown out and the rims.

Intriguing picture. The snow burying the rusted car is rather poignant.

I had a photo like this once. I got a comment about the 'streaking' and it being 'distracting'. I still checked it as 'helpful' and then laughed quietly to myself. This is perfect and very good work to me...10

Great capture. Like how the snow on the car merges right into the white surroundings...having no definition between the two "fits" an old, abandoned vehicle that has merged with it's surroundings over the years. Like it a lot. 10
