The First Snow (view largre) by Michael Walters

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Well been away from RB for a week but will catch up with all the work I’ve missed from you all. I took this shot last night and got frost nip in the process, so my finger tips all felt like they had been smashed with a hammer, can still feel it a bit today, I’ve already been told off for not wearing gloves ;-)
It was really beautiful and worth a little pain. Taken on Mt Wellington Tasmania facing west to distant mountain ranges.

    I’m seeing a huge expanse of white….must be lots of snow!!! Seriously though, I can’t see the image, nor can I see lots of other images at the moment….guess I’ll have to wait till redbubble fixes the problem…..meanwhile, I’ll just commiserate on the cold fingertips!

  • haha, yeah me too, not sure what the deal is, i’ll repost if it doesn’t get sorted by RB, thanks for your thoughts on the fingers too:) my mate got it too so at least it was kind of funny.

    Good to hear your back, but I guess I’ll wait with the others to see whats behind the white curtain.

  • Thanks for that:) yeah it’s pretty annoying, been a while since i’ve posted and get a shot im happy with and it’s a no show!! oh well might delete it and post later if it doesn’t fix it’s self.

    Hi Michael, I couldn’t see it at first, but now I can! Wow! Magnificent! With all that snow! Wonderful job! I don’t think I can stand taking photos when I need to have my gloves on :-)

  • Hi Tatiana, yeah i couldn’t see it either for a bit, all good now it seems, yeah i know what yo mean, i think some thin gloves would have been good, would be a bit hard trying to work a camera with big mittens or something ;)

    Brilliant Michael,,,,,,,bloody brilliant!!!!!!,,,, as for the gloves,,, we wear them 6 months a year here!!!! hope your fingers are thawed……
    How much snow do you get there???

  • Hey Linda, thank you so so much, 6 months of gloves is a lot:) we don’t get snow at sea level here, but in the mountains if could stretch from now to early November, but it can come and go during that time.
