Day 1 – 11/06/10 – Winter Wonderland

Today is the official start of the project, so here’s the first official photo.  We woke this morning surprised to find that the dusting of snow we received last night actually stuck.

Apparently we weren’t the only ones surprised, as several of our trees hadn’t yet had time to drop all of their leaves.  I always enjoy that brief period where Autumn changes to Winter and you can see aspects of the seasons existing together, like the combination of green leaves and snow in the shot below.  I set out to make just this one shot, and ended up shooting for half an hour.  I had difficulty picking my favorite image, so there are a few more like this on the Flickr photostream.

The first snow of the season covers the branches in the woods.

The woods are covered with the first snow of the season.

    I know this is coming here, soon, too. Last year we had snow on 10.10.

    But it was 72 today in Iowa. I cannot believe it.

    I don’t look forward to the temps photos like these need, but it sure is beautiful.

      I hear you! We’re back up to sunshine and decent temperatures now, I think the weekend was just a little surprise taste of what’s to come. Foreshadowing if you will 😉
