"Snow wave"

Photo of a snowy landscape that resembles a wave...
Photo courtesy of Ron Trees.

Photographer Ron Trees is one of this website's biggest supporters, and his wonderful images and kind words about those taken by other photographers are much appreciated. In fact, Ron submitted the photo featured above, and as always he did an excellent job! I'll just get out of the way and let him tell you about this beautiful image:
    "Like so many others, our winter here in Spokane, WA has started
    off with a real bang. For the last couple of weeks we have had
    very cold temperatures and then last Wednesday it started to snow.
    We broke the old record of snowfall in a 24 hr period. The record
    was 13 and we received 19 or more depending on your location.
    It has continued to snow off and on and we have a pretty fair mess
    really. But, on Saturday, the sun came out and it was an absolutely
    beautiful day. I could not resist getting out and taking some pictures.
    Here is one that I hope you enjoy as much as I did taking it. If you
    would like to view more, please take a look here.

    On a more personal note, I would like to just take a minute and
    thank Rick for this really awesome site that he runs. I appreciate
    it so much. The pictures that he posts, shared by many of you,
    are absolutely awe inspiring and give me goals to shoot for. I look
    forward every morning to getting on line and seeing what the
    "Photo of the Day" is. Our Creator has so many ways of telling us
    that He loves us and cares about us. I think photography does a
    very good job of capturing these love letters. Thanks to all that
    contribute here. You enrich my life everyday!

    God bless each and every one of you and have a very Merry
    Christmas."   --Ron Trees

    Ron, thanks so much for the kind words about and my small role in bringing it to the world, but it's really the hundreds of generous photographers who take the time to contribute a picture and/or an article that breathe life into it each and every day. Thanks also for being a friend.
