Snow Photography: Part Deux

Remembering the good fortune I had the last time I tried to take snow monochromes, I decided to give it a go again today. I didn't know it was supposed to snow, but when I woke up, the ground was covered with a thin layer of the stuff, so I thought it would make for some nice monos.

Got in the parents' car (mine was parked in) and headed to my favorite rural photo site, armed with camera and tripod, but foolishly, no gloves. The wind would not stop blasting that horrible arctic air on me. My feet still feel frozen. Fortunately, no spills this time, since the snow was only about an inch deep, as opposed to the foot-deep stuff we had the last time.

I hurriedly set up my tripod in between rubbing my hands together and doing a dance to try to keep from freezing. Eventually, I was able to get everything set up in a workable fashion. Just as the last time, I didn't feel like spending much time out in the field, so I hope I have a salvageable shot in the bunch. Maybe I'll have one ready for Monochrome Monday in a couple of days.

I've been having trouble just taking Buddy out. Buddy being Marigold's American Eskimo. He seems to like to take his time even though it's freezing out there! There isn't a fence, so I have to watch to make sure he doesn't take off down the street!

Our snow has all gone now thankfully. I really wanted some but after a while was glad to see it go.

I hope you get some momo shots posted. :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog, i used to do cross stitch years ago. Stopped doing it and then never got back into it but i did enjoy it. :-)
