FANTASTIC weather image, Tim! I thought of you yesterday and hope you were cozy and warm inside. We had 35 mph winds and missed the snow entirely. We were very thankful, as we have begun calving. Awesomely composed and shot! Brrrrrr! I can feel that wind you captured so beautifully. 10!

Congratulations on an excellent AC!!

Yep, looked just like this up here except for the fence and country feel. Somehow it doesn't make as good a scenic with snow blowing across the driveway, across the garage roof and past the neighbor's house- in otherwords- in unphotogentic town! LOL Very nice scenic capture and worthy of the AC and Vip. Congratts and 10 from SW Iowa

I think I may have seen that house before. I used to drive all over that area in the late 80's and early 90's. For some reason it reminds me of one I always noticed south of Sundown on a back road.

Nicely done.

About docshovel39

docshovel39

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . I got involved with photography because of my older brother Steve - a fantastic photographer who lives outside of Seattle , WA . My favorite work , apart from his , is a terrific book entitled " Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , much of it shot in black and white . I also have become a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thank you for your comments and have a GREAT day !
