Picture of tractor covered with snow - 40 cm snowfall in one day in Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 19th 2009. Click image for larger view.
We had a crazy snowfall here in southeastern Norway a few days ago. During a few hours the sky sent 40-50 cm down upon us. The media reported about tons of cards ending up outside of the road because the roads were filled with snow. It was like I had moved back to Northern Norway when I was looking out at the heavy snowfall 😉

Here I have photographed an old tractor covered with snow. You get some indication of the depth of the snow when you look on the front of the tractor.
I played a bit around in Adobe Lightroom with the different adjustments to make the picture a bit more interesting.

    Great image! The snow looks so pure and white. Angelic in deed.

    Good photograph as usual!

    Wow. It is hard to believe that we live in the same country. I wake up with the rain pounding against the windows while your view looks like a fairytale.

    I’d love 40cm of snow! Although it is sunny here in Ireland right now 🙂

    Nice contrast between the pure, fresh snow and the rusty machinery. Southern Norway is still way North for many of us… how many hours of light do you get there during the winter?

    This is an amazing picture! With the snow covering the tractor it offers an almost peaceful feeling to the image and it truly captures the moment. Just beautiful!
