Chance of wet snow

We had big, wet gorgeous snowflakes coming down all day. I grabbed my Kodak Duaflex and Canon 5D and headed out for some TTV (Through the Viewfinder) photography. At first I was frustrated by the drops of melted snow that collected on the viewfinder. After a while, I was able to accept and even embrace them. Now I realize that I wouldn't love these photographs as much without those little drops. There's a lesson in there somewhere. I'm sure of it.

A winter's tale

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'm a bit jealous of all the snow the east coast is getting. We've had only a few major snowfalls this year. The snow that's left on the ground is hard, dirty, and not at all photogenic. Freshly fallen snow can be so magical, if you can manage to ignore the hours it takes to dig your car out, your frozen toes and fingers, and the traffic jams.
