Snow Day by shantwin

Snow Day

North Seattle
year 2, day 83

The snow commeth. Predictions were for up to 12 inches, we got about 4 total. No work, no school (and they have already cancelled it for tomorrow as well, school, I'll decide on work in the morning) so on tap for me today a long walk in the snow. On tap for the boys, friends and two bouts of sleding at the golf course. I went off to find them and couldn't, but contented myself with taking shots of the snow instead. Very hard to take pictures in the snow (especially when it's coming down still) and not as happy with them as I could have been. Cold me, cold camera, wet camera, speckeled lens...

Home to make a warm dinner and hot cocoa for all the kids.

edit: small crop, some play with highlights and shadows and a little tint
what a pretty scene!

Very lovely scene and a bit jealous as were back to grey dampness now. Bet the kids are enjoying no school! Thought it was only us Brits that came to a standstill in the snow

Wow, that is beautiful. We're still without snow, it's cold enough but no sign.

love snowy shots like this, I still have one similar to this from Vancouver that I love, the tree shapes are wonderful when there is no colours to distract
