With apologies to actual mountains, Mount Pollux is more of a hill but it was a nice spot yesterday to enjoy the falling snow decorating some of the apple trees. I am a bit of a worrier about getting my equipment wet, so rarely shoot in the rain or snow. Modern equipment is pretty well sealed so my hesitation isn’t really warranted and I went out before it turned into a short lived mini-blizzard.
With the wind picking up, it was hard to keep the lens dry and I finally gave up after these images. Quabbin Park seemed a good idea, but they kept it closed for the snowfall and as I turned to return to Amherst the wind and snow really picked up in intensity. By the time I got to town the snow was over and the sky turned blue and clear. During the remainder of the day the wind was constant although gusting with bands of snow alternating with the blue sky. Such odd weather. We are due for more snow today- up to 5″ possibly. Wonder if I’ll go out?
BTW, two of my images were selected for the Monson Arts Council show.
