Let it Snow!

Let it Snow!

With the Fall colors now long gone and old man Winter less than three weeks away I have reluctantly entertained thoughts of those cold days with snow on the ground. The transition came quickly this year so there was little choice but to embrace what had arrived.

During a recent snowfall I ventured out just as it was tapering off to a few flurries. Everything was so beautiful and I decided to head for a nearby wooded area. The skies were gray and there was some ground-level fog about but visibility was fairly decent, which lead me to the shot below. I had hoped for a few Canadian geese, often hanging out here, but was happy for the serenity of what laid before me. The Weeping Willow with it's golden tones was a bonus. :-)

Enjoy!

After the Snow

The weather here in the Mid-Atlantic Region continues to mimic a roller coaster with temperatures at night dropping to below 20 degrees F, then shooting up to near 60 degrees during the day. Well yesterday it was a typical Winter day, cold and a dusting of snow. The image below is not from yesterday but from a sunrise in late October when we had a rare Halloween snow event. I took this shot a day or so afterward when much of the then 6 to 8 inches had melted away. There was still enough around to provide a little scenery and have some fisheye fun.

As the Sun worked it's way over the horizon and through the overcast sky, fog danced between the buildings in the distance. Made for quite a sight that morning.
