The Tug Hill Plateau region of upstate NY, USA. Famous for big snow, “lake effect” snow that is. A mere 3-4 feet last night. Known as the “Snowiest County East of the Rockies”, averaging 320+ inches of annual snowfall. Four winters ago, broke a national record for snowfall with 141 inches (almost 12 feet/3.7 meters) from one single storm.

    Beautiful, Joe. What a lovely home this is!! Although it could be mistaken for a well kept shed. I love the red door contrasting against the gorgeous snowfall. Well seen and captured my friend!

  • Thanks, Tori. Tough getting around yesterday it snowed so much. More last night and again today.

    superb work joe,is it a shed!, is it home, who lives in a place like this!

  • The area is a haven for outdoorsmen. From snow mobiling to hunting and fishing. These “camps” are merely weekend getaways. In winter they are difficult to even access.

    Just a fantastic little place, love the wonderful lighting shining in. Would be a wonderful winter Christmas place!!

  • It is, the whole area is amazing. Some camps are amazing grand estates, while others are like this, if not far um, more rustic. Cheers!
