And so it fell
For a very brief moment this city was covered in snow. Over the course of a couple of hours the sky dropped a couple of inches of fluffy white snow on the ground which was a surprise considering it had been so warm in the days previous to that night. I had a feeling that by mid day the following afternoon all of the snow would be long gone (and it was) so I took the tripod out to the backyard and went desktop hunting.
What I found was an interesting collection of puffy snow cliffs that had formed around tiny baby trees and sticks coming up out of the ground so I got the tripod as close to the ground as it would let me and started messing around. Most of them are pretty neat I thought so I picked out a few and here they are for your wallpapering needs.
The last of the images below is kind of interesting I thought because of the back lighting and the fact that during the longish exposure I rotated the focus to cover all of the little snow mountains which made for some strange glowing shapes. No photo manipulation trickery there. Just me trying to make something interesting of the same old boring photos of snow I was taking. I do love a good snow though…
