Tempête de neige, le monde en blanc

Snowstorm yesterday, a world in white. The storm didn't last though, it turned into icy rain by lunchtime. Still, here's to a week of snow photos!
--------------------------------
C'était hier et la tempête n'a pas duré, il a commencé à pleuvoir gelé à l'heure du déjeuner. Pour autant, une semaine blanche va commencer sur VDP !

I like to look at these pictures and I think this is wonderful, and I'll be watching for the others to come...but I'm so glad I don't have to slush through it or try to drive on it...

Woody said...

Wow, it's really coming down! I love being outside because the snow absorbs so much of the sound and it's so peaceful.

Jack said...

You had a lot of snow over there, didn't you. Thanks for visiting HDP. I always look forward to your observations.

Randy said...

That is so beautiful. We have had promises of snow but still nothing. I don't think we'll see a white christmas this year.

What a wonderful winter wonderland.

T. Becque said...

That's a really, really pretty scene. It looks peaceful.

Francisca said...

You're so clever to take your camera out and about to capture the winter beauty while it lasts, Ciel... This is such a pretty photo... and exactly as Jacob says, I'll look forward to seeing the others, but glad I don't need to be there... brrrr... there's a reason I live in the tropics. :-D

Yuck! It looks wet and dampy and cold. I must be in a horrible mood to say that----NOT!! MB

Gunn said...

Wow, what a view!!!

I am still waiting for REAL snow..... perhaps we will get some later today?

Keep warm and have a nice Sunday!:)

Diane said...

Looking forward to a week of snow photos! Ours is still around and shows no sign of going!!

Winchester Daily Photos said...

Very pretty! The snow has mostly melted where I am, but as you say I still have many snow photos to post!

What a beautiful picture. The foreground and the cropping makes it very different to how I imagine Versailles to be. It's so monolithic and cold that it almost reminds me of Soviet-era Russia!

Birdman said...

Very nice image for the season.

brattcat said...

Bring it on. But don't get a chill!

Louis la Vache said...

Between 1996 and 2005, «Louis» visited France one or twice a year, including times during the winter. He lived in France between 2005 and 2007 - but he never saw one snowflake fall in France.

Let it snow,
let it snow...

Beauty in snow scenes can't be duplicated any other way. Wow. We had an event like that yesterday and i photographed it too.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies...

Wonderful whiteness! No going out today, I imagine...

Olivier said...

J'adore, les photos sous la neige c'est superbe. Ici la neige n'a fait que passer (meme pas le temps de sortir l'APN) mais a reussis a gacher une partie du telethon. J'attends la suite avec impatience

Oh no, icy rain is cruel! Well, not very different from here!
God bless you!

I love snow storms, I figure if it's going to be cold, at least give me lots of snow too! We've already had snow this year here so maybe we'll get a really snowy winter, I'd like that.

All the cliches apply - wow, winter wonderland, fairyland! Beautiful, beautiful photo!

Loree said...

Oh that is amazing and wonderful. please send some snow this way.

Snow is very picturesque isn't it? Love this image :O)

"Semaine blanche", tu fais bien de prévenir, j'enfilerai mon bonnet à chaque fois que j'ouvrirai ma fenêtre chez toi !

Virginia said...

Bring on the snow photos Ciel, I'll love each and every one of them. This is a Christmas card photo. Wonderful.
