Photographer's Note

We have not had a good snow all winter long. In fact, the temperatures went up to 76° F (= 24° C) in February. So imagine our surprise when it decided to snow last week while I was on Spring Break. I decided I would take advantage of this spectacle and took my cameras along when I gave my wife a ride to work (she was not allowed to drive due to her shoulder injury). The temperatures were hovering around freezing and because it had been warm the day before, the snow did not accumulate on bare ground or on road surfaces, only on trees and grass. For the first time in years, our trees turned white the way I see trees turn white in photos that John Maenhout (jhm) and Nicolas Abdoul Amherd (Nicou) post from Belgium and Switzerland.

This was taken from behind the wheel when I was stopped at a stop sign on Garfield Avenue near the hospital where I had dropped off my wife. Since it was taken behind the windshield, the colors did not come out quite right, so I converted it to B&W. I would normally clone out the overhead wire, but since this was covered in snow, I decided to leave it. The workshop has a photo from half a block down the road with lots of overhead wires covered in snow.

PS. I added another workshop photo to respond to Chris Jules' (ChrisJ) critique.
