Yesterday we had what will probably be a minor prelude to a major snowstorm. It sounds as if we may see upwards of 24″ between Monday night and Tuesday morning with strong winds. I’ll fire up the generator tomorrow to be sure we’re covered.
This morning I visited Dean Brook to see how the fresh snow and ice looked. Shooting snow in the woods is often less than rewarding as the debris that falls out of the trees makes an awful mess, but today was nice and fresh. Pure as the driven snow, as they say. Much of the brook was flowing under thick ice shelves and for a few compositions it would have been nice to venture out onto them. But a fall through the ice as a child and possibly the wisdom that come with advancing years convinced me to stay close to the edge where I knew some large rocks were solidifying the shelves and making conditions just a bit safer. Guess that I am getting a little wussy in my old age.
So here is one shot of a small bit of the flow in front of some nice icicles and some of the “pure driven snow”.
