20161231 Last snowfall of the year

We enjoyed a nice new fall of snow on New Year’s Eve.  Here are some representations of what we saw … some in colour, some in black and white.  Regular viewers will recognize familiar scenes, this time during snowfall.

Lots of texture in that snow, even in very flat light.   (When you stop to notice it.)

Happy 2017!

  1. Tom, beautiful and curious how one could not notice the texture of snow. “In the depth of Winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible Summer”. A. Camus xoxo
