Best Shot Monday

We had an amazing amount of snow, here in central Ohio. We measured, in our backyard, about 20.5 inches of snow! There were snow drifts almost three feet tall. Schools are still canceled today!!! ah! The only good thing about the snow: the photos I was able to take! Here's one of my favorites, doctored up a bit! :)

If you make this shot larger, it is really amazing. Look at all of that snow falling!

You are right - making it bigger makes it even more amazing! That's a fantastic shot...and have I mentioned how jealous I am that you got all that snow? Seriously! I would love to have all of that - I know, I'm totally twisted...

kim said...

How did Adam even manage to walk in all that snow? Time to invest in some snow shoes.
Great job with the photo! It's amazing.

krissy said...

That is a cool pic but I'm so glad it was you and not me! I would have slit my wrists!

I'm thinking spring! :-)

BTW...I love your profile pic! Hot!

Christina said...

Dang that's a a lot of snow! I just love it, all that powdery white drifting around him. That's cool...actually, it's COLD! haha. Good thing his jacket is brightly colored so you don't lose him!

That is an awesome photo...he's in Narnia. :)

Wow, how do you keep from losing a little guy in that much snow?

Law Student Hot Mama said...

Ooh! I love that.

Is this more proof of Ohio's suckiness? Hahaha - I guess not, because I actually like snow. It's good for skiing. Though in moderation. And not in March. Heh.

Angie said...

Yup. I heard it was crazy over there. We had one of those storms in October of 1997 in Colorado. We had 21 inches (without drifts). It shut everything down for days. We totally missed this one here in Central Illinois which is fine with me because our snow had JUST melted from the ground being covered for the past 3 months.

KEEP BELIEVING
