Well, we got some snow …

The afternoon and evening of December 4, we finally got a bit of Winter. Snowed for several hours, and actually began to build up on the branches of our flowering crabapple  trees in the court. It has been so long since we’ve actually seen snow, that I hung out by the window, fascinated at the sight, watching the fat flakes drifting down. We had dim light, as is usual in this weather, but there was enough light for me to get a few pictures this morning.

At first, I was interested in shooting though the moisture on my window, using it as a compositional element. Here are two, the first more-or-less straightforward:

And then I noticed that one of my neighbours had lit her lamp in her living room window, and I thought that it might enhance the photograph, so I shot it. It looked rather nice, I thought … here it is:

After that, I thought I might hazard a shot through the window screen … it turned out rather well … here it is:

And there they are … not bad, I think, considering the conditions.  I hope you enjoy them; I certainly enjoyed shooting them.

Take care, folks … Cheers!
