Cellpic Sunday – Winter Wonderland

View from my office Window.

Fargo, North Dakota.

In mid-December, a significant winter storm dumped three total days of snow almost everywhere as it traveled from California to the east coast. As this is written in my office today, it’s day two of snow here in Fargo. Fortunately, so far the winds have been light, and the snowfall coming in batches. The snow is forecast to be 8 inches or more by the end of the week, but so far we haven’t seen anywhere near that much.

About the photo: The view outside my office window looks onto our parking lot and the apartment garages for the buildings on the next street to the north, so the view isn’t particularly photogenic. All the same, the freshly fallen snow looks nice on the trees and bushes, and except for some traffic on the driveways, the snow is undisturbed. I captured the view with my Samsung S20U. It was imported into Lightroom Classic appearing mostly devoid of color. I decided that it would look nice in a sepia tone and sent it off to Silver Efex 3 for black-and-white conversion. Click on the image above to view it in 2K HD on my Flickr site.

I encourage fellow bloggers to create their own Cellpic Sunday posts. I never have a specific topic for this feature, and the only rules are that the photo must be captured with a cell phone, iPad, or another mobile device… If you have an image from a drone or even a dashcam, that’s acceptable as well. The second rule is to link your challenge response to this post or leave a comment here with a link to your post in the comment. Oh, and, you don’t have to post it on a Sunday.

    • We are sticking south of the regular snow line for a couple more weeks yet, on our way to North Carolina for a few days, then back to Texas… then back to chilly North Dakota. >grin<

    • I like to say that every fall, everyone has to relearn how to drive. The proliferation of full-time four-wheel-drive vehicles and front wheel drive vehicles have made driving easier, but it can be treacherous. The worst is when it rains, freezes on the streets, then is covered with snow. Lots of fender benders ensue, even with vehicles designed for driving in those conditions…
      I just realized that I didn’t really answer your question. Most of us should get some refresher training every year, but almost nobody does. >grin<

      • I suppose if you are used to the conditions then driving in it becomes second nature. It’s just to us that are not familiar with it that it looks so utterly dangerous! :-O
