    it says “20 amazing snow pictures”, but many are focused not on snow, but on animals that happen to be in the snow.  Some of the other pictures are of ice, which is also frozen water, but has less air in it and tends to hold a more solid shape, creating the effects that were the focus of those pictures.  Several others are photos of trees, that happen to be covered in snow, in fact I saw no pictures that I would qualify as “amazing snow pictures” because no of them contained solely snow.  A more accurate title would be “9 pictures of animals in the snow, 4 pictures of trees covered in snow, 2 pictures of ice frozen in strange ways, and 5 other miscellaneous pictures” or “20 pictures of things that happened to be in a snowy and/or cold setting”

      You must be a very sad sad person. Why not just enjoy the view? Plus, pictures only with snow would be really dull. Relax a lil bit more, dude!

      Ya, I agree. I’d have called it “Snowy Pictures” or something.
      Language mechanics are lovely.

    The word “amazing” is overused and indicates a lazy, valley-girl-esque mentality.  Please boycott use of the word, or anything titled “amazing”–this contagion must be stopped!
