Ok, this one needs a little explanation. It was taken Feb. 2004 after the biggest snowstorm I have ever seen in my life. One hundred centimetres fell within a 24 hour period! The snowplow had visited once before I took this picture (the morning after a night, day, and another night of storming) and that was the last we saw of it for 3 days. Of course, everything in the city came to a standstill; schools were cancelled for a week, no one could really leave their homes for a while, traffic was crazy when the streets started to be plowed because of the narrow roads, etc. etc. The storm became known as "White Juan" because just a few months previous, Halifax experienced its worst hurricane in history (hurricane Juan) which wreaked its own havoc on the city in even a worse way! There's global warming for you.

It's a wonder that nobody did comment this picture so far. I love the low steet level point of view. I also like the general ambiance in the picture. I'm just curious about your technical parameters. I wouldn't be surprised if you used some apperture like f/8, f/11 or above, as both the fore- and the back-ground are pretty sharp. Can you add your meta-data in your next posts? It's easy, it's all there in the uploading dialog, even posting the GPS-location!
TFS, and keep on posting such good pictures!

I like the theatre of the shadows on the snow surface in the left down corner. Good perspective.

The sharpness is not really the best in your picture, but the lights are absolutely great and the POV is also very nice! The situation captured for me is amazing, because I never saw a street with lots of snow. I´ve seen the snow just on the mountains. So TFS this nice composition!
