About This Image

With not much rain all winter here in Arizona today started out with a nice light rain, then in the afternoon it started snowing. The only problem was it was to warm and the snow melted as it hit the ground. Around 3pm it quit snowing and the clouds were starting to drift away leaving there last little bit of snow on the little mountains by my house. Well I just had to get in the car and I headed towards Las Vegas to get this shot.

Hi Beverly and Ann, Thanks very much for your nice thoughts about my photo. Yep Ann, that's about it for snow around here, you have to get out and get photos of it before it melts in the afternoon.

Gee, is that what snow looks like in Arizona?! The cloudscape is very impressive though, I must add. Very nice cactus Alan and the terrain is very nicely captured.

Hi Alex and Carol, Thanks for your very nice comments. I'm glad you enjoyed my view. Alex I figured with all of the snow you have that some was bound to spill over lol.. I only had to drive about 7 miles and the dogs always enjoy going for a ride.

Hi Jas, Thanks so much for your really nice comment on my photo and composition. It was trying to snow some more and it was starting to rain on me. I spotted the barrel cactus and had to walk a little ways to get to it with my dogs right behind me :) I'm glad you liked my photo..

I knew this snow would look much nicer in Arizona,glad to see you got a little taste o'winter.LOL It adds a nice touch to the mountains and makes a pertty scene. Too bad you had to travel to see it though.

It was worth the trip Alan! Great skyscape; it looks as if there could be more snow to come there? It seems strange to see snow covered mountains in the midst of the desert. I like the way you've captured the barrell cactus in the foreground and then drifting wood takes your eye through the scene, up to the snow covered mountains and cloud. Really nice to view....Thanks :)
