Some of us are experiencing extreme weather conditions, so show us what it's like with you! If you're lucky enough to have hot and sunny weather, cheer us up with that!

While we are still enduring the last few weeks of winter here in Ohio, I have fond memories of our last trip to Barbados. Absolutely gorgeous weather every day. This was a view that I captured on the eastern coast facing the Atlantic, where the winds were quite strong. I did a bit of digital magic to enhance the idea of the grasses being swept by the strong breezes, and the view of the sweeping valley with the rain clouds just off the shore. I hope you find it as emotive as I do. Mike

Lovely Mike. I like the effect you used on the grass – I can hear it moving in the wind! Great colours too. It definitely makes me feel warmer, which I appreciate, as we had snow yet again last night!
- March 6, 2018 at 3:58 pm #331951
Lovely shot Mike, I really like the effects with grass, I can almost feel the warm breeze!

Not my view in a few days when I return home. Hoping most of the nasty stuff is passed back there. For now….. Rodney Bay, St. Lucia
- March 3, 2018 at 5:28 pm #331615
I hope, for your sake, that the nasty stuff IS gone, Rob! Be hard to leave this sight. I am considering plugging in my sun lamp, putting on some shorts and a tank, and looking at a large version of your photo…I might just trick myself! 😉 Enjoy your last few days!

That gorgeous beach would be hard to leave!

Took this shot with my iPhone but it shows the weather for sure, cold!
- March 3, 2018 at 5:43 pm #331617
Those of you that know me, know I love my snow (flakes) but even I have a limit. It snowed again last night, where we are, and the snow even followed us to Washington last weekend, where we anticipated seeing some early signs of spring. So, here is a shot of winter in south central B.C.:
The lake IS frozen (actually very thick), but water on top of the ice is from a couple of days above zero.
And this is what the weather looked like in Bellingham, upon arrival:
And after the snow melted:

Gorgeous images Leanne. I especially like the first one of the river. The composition leads you right in and the mix of the water, the ice and snow is fascinating. The colors add to the image of “cold”! Here's hoping you get some respite soon.
- March 5, 2018 at 9:13 am #331772
Very nice Leanne. I especially like the first one of the ice covered rock.
- March 5, 2018 at 9:58 am #331790
Wonderful images! If I were to visit snow, I would love to see places like that lake.
- March 5, 2018 at 6:38 pm #331831
Thank you Bobbie, Kent and Leesa!
- March 7, 2018 at 8:41 am #331988
Really like this one, Ice covered rocks. I have a good title for you (although I just used it myself… 🙂 )
- March 3, 2018 at 7:26 pm #331623
E. Q. de SouzaParticipant
Pretty warm pictures above us Leanne, it makes me feel warm as well. Here in Amsterdam as in the north of Europe the weather is pretty cold, unfortunately here I hardly have snow that don't melt, I tried to photograph some snow flakes inspired by you but just got some blobs of melted ice. I will try next time with fresh snow and see if I get luck.
- March 5, 2018 at 12:39 am #331745
The snowflake shots can be challenging but rewarding, E.Q. I did a round of shots that produced nothing worth keeping today (the flakes were melting quickly as we hovered around zero). Try putting some materials (scarves, glass, even ice) outside ahead of time, under cover, to get them nice and cold, before trying to catch the flakes. I hope you have success! Good luck.

We've just reached the end of summer here in Oz and that's the time when blackberries are everywhere to be found. I often pick and eat them while wandering through the hills on my photo excursions. They're considered an infestation here and I heard a radio program yesterday about how local councils regularly spray them with poison to kill them at this time of year…Gulp! They then spray them with dye to identify those that have been sprayed…which I haven't yet noticed thankfully. Don't think I'll be picking wild berries anymore though.
- March 3, 2018 at 7:52 pm #331627
They look good Graham. I used to eat wild ones when out in the woods when I was younger. Unfortunately, there isn't many around here anymore. Be careful which ones you eat!
- March 4, 2018 at 9:47 am #331669
Nice use of dof Graham. They remind me of the mulberries we have here. Please, do us a favor and buy your berries in the store.
- March 5, 2018 at 12:43 am #331746
Every time I see this shot my mouth waters, Graham. It seems a shame they get sprayed! I remember picking blackberries with my Mom and sister when I was little. The bush that we were picking from started to shake violently. We didn't wait around to see if it was a bear…we just ran!
- March 5, 2018 at 9:36 am #331779
I love you photo. It takes me back more than a few years. Wild blackberries have almost disappeared where I lived as a child. There once were large patches of berries all around our rural neighborhood. Berry pickin' was an essential summer activity. Usually they were ready in time to make cobbler for 4th of July picnics. In good years we also made jam. No commercial product compares with those wild berries.

At least this beautiful shot will help you remember the warmth Karen. The colors and the lighting work to give it a slightly dreamlike quality.
- March 6, 2018 at 2:29 am #331871
I like this pic Karen, very well composed I'd say. Really conveys the feeling of being there quite well.

That's some pretty deep snow Diane. I think you've conveyed the weather very convincingly. Hope you bundle up well.
- March 5, 2018 at 9:15 am #331773
Love the last one! What a great storytelling photo!
- March 5, 2018 at 9:54 am #331789
Wow! That must have been quite a fierce storm!
- March 10, 2018 at 5:22 pm #332321
love the 1st pic. I'm shivering cause it reminds me of NY winters. Only miss them a little though…
- March 4, 2018 at 8:02 am #331657
- March 4, 2018 at 9:54 am #331673
I surprised you could even manage to move a finger to take the shot Chris. Stay warm (and off snowy runways)!
- March 5, 2018 at 12:45 am #331747
I see you are a little more ‘covered' in this selfie, Chris! ????
- March 5, 2018 at 1:53 am #331749
Wouldn't want to spoil your breakfast Leanne. 🙂
- March 5, 2018 at 9:15 am #331774
That looks VERY cold!
- March 4, 2018 at 9:04 am #331664
So it's not only me here who “enjoys” snow and cold… whew. Will someone tell March that it is a spring month? 😀
- March 4, 2018 at 10:21 am #331677
I haven't been using the camera lately, new term starts tomorrow. Here is one I posted before but it's typical of what is going on now.
Sorry to all of you dealing with cold, snow and ice – it's hotter than usual for this time of the year: 29C here today (about 84F). We're just about at the end of our “red” month. In a week or two the red anemones will be replaced by yellow flowers all over the place.

Nice Robert. I like the way we can see the ice crystals on the branch.
- March 4, 2018 at 5:39 pm #331698
Along a local river in TN. We've had a total of about 2 inches of snow this year. Sorry about that to all in colder climates.

Came across this shot from a few months ago today. Not new but thought it might warm you guys battling the Beast from the East.

This certainly captures the essence of harsh winter weather. Wow, it looks cold! It's also a perfect example of why I live in the deep South.
- March 5, 2018 at 11:50 am #331810
I remember driving in weather like that in Michigan. Always made me very tense. Stay safe Kent (and everyone else).
- March 5, 2018 at 11:05 pm #331839
That looks familiar. ????
- March 5, 2018 at 11:04 pm #331838
Another example of Wind Sickles.
If you notice they are only on one side of the branches, and even the rope. All pointing horizontally and in the same direction. This is what happens when frost tries to form and the wind is blowing an average of 40 mph all day.
The best I could do with a cell phone in that fierce of wind.

I went into the page from bottom so I saw the bird first and just knew it was your image even before I saw your name Diane. Amazing catch in weather like that (or any time). Whatever is falling in the background gives the impression of a lot of wind.
- March 7, 2018 at 8:47 am #331990
These are great Diane. I especially love the 2nd one.
- March 8, 2018 at 11:53 am #332119
Love these Diane. It looks like the wind is whipping the snow around, but the birds are so crisp. I bet those were tricky shots. Nicely done.
- March 8, 2018 at 8:10 pm #332165
Very nice Diane.
- March 8, 2018 at 9:53 pm #332168
Tersha, the bird images are wonderful! The colours are perfect and like Leanne said, you did an incredible job of keeping the birds sharp. Terrific images. Thank you.
- March 7, 2018 at 8:39 am #331987
- March 7, 2018 at 8:47 am #331989
I like that!
- March 8, 2018 at 5:18 am #332105
So do I! The rocks look so smooth and slippery and you picked the perfect title.
- March 8, 2018 at 11:54 am #332121
Awesome Erik! And as Bobbie said, perfect title. It would not have worked for mine, as it would have been “on the rock” LOL
- March 8, 2018 at 8:15 pm #332166
That's pretty Cool Erik, reminds me of my time in the Aleutian islands before things got really cold.

We have had very unusual snow in SE England, the Birds were all puffed up and not very impressed. We did however have a visit from a group of ‘Red listed' Fieldfares, 20 of them for 3 days… the usual birds were not impressed to say the least!
