A Dream for Bia by Corvidae65 A Dream for Bia by Corvidae65
I almost never do this...Post more than one shot in a week, but I decided to do it this time because this one is time sensitive--I need to get this gift to Bia before it melts :giggle:

Bia aka Biutz :iconbiutz: has a strange and wonderful love for snow. I happened to have the good fortune (insert rolleyes here) to be in the right place to drive through this years first real snowstorm last night. Well, that's not entirely true--I drove through 200 miles of it before finding a hole and waiting it out as I was getting my version of snowblindness from the swirling flakes in the headlights :icondizzyplz:

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was going to be a good snowstorm was I hope I can get a shot for Bia :aww: So, L'il Sis, here's your snow. I'd love to say I hiked miles uphill both ways through waist deep snow and driving wind suffering frostbite on my lil toes to get this shot, but I can't. :shrug: You can see the snow is only ankle deep at best and I trudged down into the bar ditch along the road (wait! it was uphill on the way back to the warm truck :nod:) The wind *was* blowing so I did get cold but I really didn't suffer much frostbite and there is a chance my toes will dry out after my tennis shoes got wet. As I told Bob and Alice, there are not many people in the world I would stop and take pictures of snow for. Just you. :hug:

Thank you LeeAnne :hug: (Im way behind in my messages--I do apologize :blush:)

Lucky you to not have a lot of snow...well, we didn't really have any snow last year and wound up paying for it with 150,000 acres of burned forest :no: I'd much prefer the snow over that I guess :shrug:

Thank you Alice :tighthug: Well, I am my own worst critic. I can think of a hundred different ways this hot could be better but hardly any of those things were in my power to change. I waited for a break in the clouds but my hands and feet were freezing :iconshiverplz: As long as Bia likes it then it's allright with me. Only problem now is she will expect more snow shots and you know how I feel about winter :icontantrumplz:

And don't think all your effort wasn't worth it, you put such a big smile on my face it's gonna be creepy to everyone around since I'm not generally that happy ;P And I really hope you don't get any frostbites cause then you'd just use them as excuses to not get me more snow photos :giggle:

Thanks, John, it's wonderful! :smooch:

Oh, forgot to tell you there is a large bird of prey in the center of the trees if you go full view. I don't know what type of bird it is--owl, eagle or hawk.
