fresh powder - Mt. Hood, New Years Eve

Mt. Hood  on New Years eve, after lots of fresh snow.  What a difference from the last time I saw it, just a few weeks ago:

(Please ignore the dust spots...I didn't see them and it appears I need to have my eyes tested for glasses.)

Oh how fun! I went snowboarding on Mount Hood once, a couple years ago. This looks just like the beautiful, winter day that we were there. Lovely shot!
Kay: It was so crowded when we were up there, Jewlya. Probably just like you saw it too!! Thanks for your comment!

Wow! My part of the world isn't like this
Kay: Thanks, Chris! Where are you located?
Ooohh powder. V nice shot.
Kay: Why thanks, Nigel smile
Wonderful landscape. This snowy mountain is really beautiful. Perfect for skiing !
Kay: It is, isn't it Florence? You can ski here most of the year too.

Dust in the snow? OK I will ignore them. The truth is that you seldom see them when taking the pictures - most of the time it is afterwards.

Excellent picture. This mountain's slopes looks ski-able.
Kay: You are so nice, Louis. Glad you like the pic. Next time I'll remember to look a little harder for those dratted spots smile

Do you live near Mr. Hood? If so and I were you, I'd drive there frequently just for this beautiful view.
Kay: Hi Kathryn, I live a couple of hours away but I do try to view the mountain as often as I can!! You can see Mt Hood from downtown Portland, which is amazing.

That looks lovely! I want to go skiing! It this the result of those Pacific storms that washed the west coast?
Kay: Hi Martin,
The snow onslaught is "on-going" up here. Since this picture was taken, at least a couple more feet have added to the snow plow's workload.
Excellent shot Kay - what a fantastic view.
Kay: Thank you very much, Bernie smile

Beautiful shot Kaysmile
Kay: Thanks, Tracy! Hope you are doing well!
Superb shot. I like the angle
Kay: Thank you, Richard! I'm wondering if everyone on SC is getting tired of my Mt Hood shots. There are so many of them. LOL!

Stunning is the word - just reminded me how long it is since I went skiing! Lovely crisp photograph.
Kay: Thanks so much, Mike!
Mt. Hood looks fantastic from every angle. When we were driving in it's vicinity it was difficult to keep our eyes on the road to drive safely! We stopped at every pull-out to marvel at the sight of it. You've caught it's beauty!
Kay: Thanks Patrushka! I feel that way about Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens too. smile And I can't leave Mt. Adams out of the picture either!
This reminds me of the old hand coloured black and white postcards we used to have. Lovely picture Kay
Kay: Thanks, Bill! The dark green easily translates to black on many monitors LOL!!!

picture postcard image Kay, beautiful. Those are not dust spots, you captured on film for the first time ever conclusive proof of alien existance! lol. mal
Kay: Mal, you are so kind to put it that way. Next time I'll be a wee bit more professional in presenting my shots!!! After all, you are one of my mentors. smile
Crikey, Kay! This is gorgeous. What a day this is on shutterchance for inspirational shots. (:o)
Kay: Count your photo as one of those inspirational shots, Roz! And thanks for the huge compliment!!

what a stunning sight that is, what i'd like to have a chance to snap thatsmile
Kay: Thank you, Tim! I would love to be able to fly like a bird over this area, snapping pictures, that's for sure! I totally agree with you.

Absolutely stunning.

I like snow pictures, can't ever seem to take them though because we don't often have any here. sad
Kay: Ah, Ellie, Perhaps I can send you some snow, then? Trouble is, it may not be snow by the time it reaches you. smile Thanks for stopping by!
Vow, to the lovely shot and your photography skill.
Again spectacular, Kay, but would suggest to you to trim the highway and to leave the landscape clean! To my these landscapes they fill to me completely! Thanks
