Look like fun. What can I say I live in Canada....
While you are waiting for bread, try some banock.
1 cup flour
1 table spoon baking soda
1/4 tea spoon salt
Blend dry ingredients in a bowl
Add water gradually until it is the consistency of pizza doug
Form into 1 inch thick 4-6 inch diameter loaf fry till golden brown
Ideally eat hot with maple syrup or jam

Ditto on what pudgy_groundhod said on the tilt shift. That crossed my mind as soon as I seen the picture.

Did you notice how quiet things are with everyone indoors and no cars driving around?

The rows of houses look just like gingerbread houses with icing for roofs. Looks like a beautiful day which makes it even more amazing.

The record cold weather for the UK and Europe is head line news down here at the other end of the earth. Hope things get back to normal for you all soon.

We are having record wet weather and cooler temperatures. Our coolest Spring for over 150 yrs.
So much for global warming!!

I'm from the subtropics, so I'm loving this snow. I genuinely hope it snows every day all winter long.

Snow is brutal at the moment.

Do you live near Lochee?

If tilt/shift is required, it's very very slight. I just don't see it.

Umm... looks like a fresh layer of snow on a nice Canadian morning :)

Sorry, we're used to tons of snow here. That amount wouldn't even slow down the school buses, let alone shut down industry. 30 mins down the road is getting blasted by a snow streamer off the lake and they are expected to get 50cm in the next 48 hours. But, we have all the snow removal equipment that is needed to deal with it. Unfortunately you guys don't. :(

I had a quick 'play' to see how this would come up, given a fake tilt-shift effect.

I think it looks gorgeous.

Hope you like it?

Pretty easily, actually....in PS Elements.

Create a duplicate layer. Blur it (Gaussian blur), create a layer mask (using an adjustment layer), drag it below the blur layer and clip it to the blur layer.

Select the mask and apply a gradient (foreground to background and click on reflected gradient) and draw a line to reveal required amount of detail from sharp background layer).

I then made some adjustments to individual colour channels to boost certain colours, to make the image look 'toy-like'.

And that's about it.
