First Snow

Well, we finally had our first “real” snowfall this weekend, which is kind of unbelievable. I was starting to think winter was never gonna get here. (Not that I’m a fan of winter or anything, but the seasons have a schedule to stick to.)

Before, we had had a wee bit o’ snow that stuck beautifully to tree branches and such, so I had gone out with my 100-200mm lens and circular polarizing filter and got some nice shots (IMO).

On Saturday we got about a foot, which is melting away as I write this, so yesterday I headed out with my 75-300mm zoom lens and walked around the Hawthorn Street area, hoping to get some nice abstracts of the beautiful, rambling Victorian houses while there was still snow on all the roofs, etc.

It took me a while to start getting the images I wanted, but eventually I figured out that I needed to be looking at houses a street away, not right in front of me, in order to see the compositions I was after. (It probably does not help that I have no depth perception!)
