Full Critique Proper Snow

Someone over there in GB just mentioned to me that I should post some proper snow pictures for you guys, since you never seem to have the opportunity. Well, I decided to go back through my archives and see if I could re-edit some of my older shots from when I knew nothing about digital editing.
In this case, we go all the way back to 2008, shortly after I joined this forum.

1. The beaver pond out back of my house at the time.

2. Same location.

3. A line of fence posts covered up with snow out by my barn.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed bringing them to life.

Great shots. We rarely see that much snow. However our infamous Blizzard of 93 dropped 24" in just over 24 hrs. Wind picked up, closing roads with drifts and taking down power lines. 4 days later it was completely gone with temps in the 60's, but it would be another 4 days before our power was restored.
 
My goodness me these snowy pictures are classic m8. So overwhelmingly crisp and so detailed too. Mind-blowing, really. If I may, what camera & lens did you use to capture these wonderful shots? And also, what were the final settings used on the camera and lens before taking the shots?
But yeh, brilliant stuff. Thanks for sharing these gems.

Thanks, Richy. These were actually with my first bridge camera, a Fuji FinePix S5200 back in 2008. I had graduated from using the first (2001) Fuji point and shoot digital cameras then. I don't exactly remember what settings, but I was using my film SLR experience along with digital knowledge back then to just play and enjoy seeing it all brought together instantly at the time.
 
Wowza, you only used a bridge camera, well that blows me away. I was half expecting you to give us a gear list.
Just shows yeh aye. But yeh impressive stuff m8 that you captured these pictures using only a point and shoot.
Your work is extremely inspirational. Thanks.
