YIKES! That is one sincere pile of snow! I haven't seen one that large in a long time.

Great find!

Love the look of this heavy equipment playing its version of king of the hill. Wonderful composition and tones. V.

That certainly gives an idea of how much snow has fallen! Dramatic shot. V

Over here they use snowblowers, huge one, making piles 2-3 times those heights. They sometimes last till July. V

That's snow? Looks like dirt to me... good find

An interesting and realistic photo.

People from non-snow states sometimes do not realize snow is not always pretty. The good times are walking around during a light snow or the morning after when everything sparkles. A few days later it looses its appeal. These dirty piles can last for weeks.

But, I'd never give up snow and move South.

Amazing sharpness and clarity with great tones. Also amazing that the snow can support this excavator. "V"
