White Out by Joanne  Bradley

Photographic Prints

Small (12.0" x 8.0")

Available to buy on…

A North American expression used to describe a snow condition where visibility is so poor we cannot see anything beyond a short distance.
Totally appropriate today during a snowstorm…
I was only outside the car about 10 minutes to get a few shots, but by then my hands had turned into blocks of ice and were tingling. The wind was brutally cold. Needless to say after a few important errands we retired to the comfort of our warm home and did not venture out again.
A lovely area in other seasons, this bench is on a small hill overlooking the Lake of Two Mountains, the distant shore, and the neighboring town of St-Eustache, Quebec CANADA

    I’m not sure ‘white out’ originates in North America Joanne. I’m sure the American indians probably have a name for it but I’d suspect the origins of ‘white out’ would be nearer to the UK.
    However that doesn’t remove any of the drama in your fine shot. XX

    That’s so endlessly cold and lonely.
    A very emotional shot, Joanne. I love it.
