After what seemed like a month of clear, cold weather, the chinook rolled through, brought in some clouds, and warmed things up above zero. But what was unusual for a chinook, which usually brings warm, dry weather, it dumped 2-3 inches of snow. So I wound up firing up the tractor to plow the road and driveway, then hop on the ski doo to groom the dog trail. As luck would have it, the clouds started to clear off just when leaving and the temps quickly dropped to nearly twenty below (about minus thirty to the French). But I did remember to grab the camera, so I got a few shots while freezing my butt off down in the valley.
The alpenglow really lit up the clouds...

And had a fine sunset on the way home.


  1. Those are great pics! The first one looks more like a painting than a picture.

  2. Thanks Scott. It seems like the colder it gets, the clearer the sky is. Makes it easy to get good photos, if you can remember the camera!
