About This Image

We just had a nice snow storm pass through Arizona. It was just enough to make things white then a hour or so later it was all melted. I took this shot from my back porch while the snow was coming down. I don't do this snow photo stuff very often, all the colors got washed out. I will most likely delete this photo, it does not meet my low standards ROFL... -- Well by popular demand I'm leaving this shot in my gallery :-)

Hi Ann, Thanks :) I'm glad you liked this photo. Snow on cactus is a strange view. Very little snow this year, maybe next year I can get some new cactus in snow shots.

Alan I just found this photograph of yours. It's wonderful. The snow on the cactus gives it such a wonderful form.

Thanks Don.. Ever since the standards thought popped into my head, I keep thinking about it. I have now lowered my standards even more lol... I noticed on the weather channel you are starting to get some winter. With it getting down to 14 degrees here for two days, the water lines are breaking. The un-insulated line going to by birdbath split. Hi Alex, Thanks very much!! I'm glad you liked this one.. It is always strange to see snow on cactus.

WOW!! nice shot Alan,it looks nice on those desert plants and it looks like you have plenty of room for more snow there.lol

I'm glad the photo will live, it more than meets my low standards :-). It is quite a pretty shot Alan. Odd weather, we have only had a trace of snow here this year, warm and rainey. I'm sure it will turn though. Don

Thanks Steve... From your comments and others I will let this photo live :) I guess my thoughts on photos had narrowed down and I did not see it like everyone else. Thanks for the wake up :)... Thanks Carol! I'm Glad you liked my photo. And Thanks Talsi, I'm also happy you liked my unusual view. Hey you can have the cold and snow. One day of it is enough for me....

I like the snow on the desert cactus and all - It's an unsusal sight. Here we have only had about 4 days of winter, most of the time it's been around 60 - which is a lot higher than it should be for this time of the year. I am ready for some snow.

Lovely photo of the snow! Carol

Alan, couldn't disagree more with your self-deprecating comment! I think this image really captures in incongruity of snow on desert plants, and conveys the message very well! And the whole point of snow is that it should wash out the colours!

Glad you enjoyed my cactus covered with snow Alandra. It's 6am here and it's 18 degrees. I have the fireplace going along with the house heater, and some coffee and I'm still freezing.

well, to me it's appealing to see the dusting of snow on the vegetation in your area, compared to ours. very nice, Alan.
