The Beauty Of Snow? by Kaz-D The Beauty Of Snow? by Kaz-D
Today we woke up to a widespread blanket of snow, and the news that in the next town, over 2000 people had been stranded overnight in blizzards, in and around the town occurred the biggest abandonement of cars ever seen in Britain due to snow. It was pretty incredible, and not all in a good way. I was one of those who couldn't get my car out the road due to it being a hill and all ( good for floods...but not for snow!) but luckily my parents were kind enough to run me around in their 4 by 4. We witnessed a crash as a woman couldn't brake and shunted the car in front of her, throwing him onto the roundabout in the path of our car, and I'm only too grateful that nothing more serious has happened to friends and family.

Snow is pretty to look at, but it's deadly, very very deadly. And that's sad but true :( Not looking forward to tomorrow, the snow has thawed a little and refrozen :(

Nice capture, but yes, I know what you mean about snow. I had an accident myself during the winter, but, it's all about being careful. Braking is not a good idea, but then the highway maintenance aren't doing a particularly good job either contrary to what has been reported on the radio.

I think more could be done all round - drivers and maintenance. I hope your accident wasn't too bad. I saw a few around the heavy snow period and people just were not bothering to adjust their speed to the conditions. I didn't like driving on it so much, but that's life :D

Just car damanged, so not overly bad. Although the insurance people would disagree, I'm sure.

The branches curve in such a elegant way. The snow adds a bright contrast to the limbs. Yet there is something haunting about the mysterious tree. I love the crop, makes the subject of the tree stand out. The image can bring a cold chill to someone's skin. Like mine.

That is a sad story I hope everyone is ok.:hug: Car accidents are scary.
