The great thing about where I live is that here in the valley my grass almost needs mowed already - green a week ago. But within a half an hour drive up the mountain - I can be skiing in some great new snow. Love it.........

Anyone have some snow flake shots at night illuminated with their flash? Those can be very cool. We never had a night snow here this year to get nice shots of this.

I popped only one flash shot, "Spook", to see what it might give ... but, as you alluded to, it was far too bright out, at that time of day, to have much effect. It had mostly quit by the time the sun went down. Like they say, "Timing is everything."

Here:

Although you can tell it is really coming down by how fuzzy and unclear the background trees are presenting.

Milwaukee wound up with 10 inches ... we got around 6-9 in the area.

Don, even with daylight the flash singled out those flakes that were just about to land on your roof. Good contrast effect.

I knew their was a reason why I moved from Indiana to Arizona. Here's a pic of
me and dog, you can almost tell by her tongue it getting warm.(89 deg today)
Now where did I put that sun tan lotion? LOL:)

Awww cute dog!! Well now that the snow has stopped, we have to wait two weeks for it to completely dry up and continue to jump over those nasty puddles that are everywhere.

In Missouri, the puddles jump over you.

Man, here it comes ... AGAIN! (hair-pulling, face stretching & glaring looks begin)

Sleet this time ... another Thursday/Friday of fun & games ... and horrible weather. I'm never going to get anything DONE at this rate. Geez Louise! (Do you sense the frustration, here? :rolleyes: I know I do ... it's palatable.) Spring cannot be sprung, it seems. And to think ... Cubs baseball ... next week! Err, excuse me ... SNOW-ball!

Okay ... here's the 5:30PM shot, from TODAY (3/27/2008) ... taken with the "ridin' shot-gun camera" - the α100, the 18-250 & an external flash. Just for you, Spook!

I feel like I'm living IN a snow-globe! I know, I know ... "Don't get shook-up about it, Don!"

Here's just the tree, as a contrast point, about twenty feet away ...

They calculated this to be at the rate of an inch/hour. :eek: Go ahead, count these rather enormous flakes ... you'll see ... :D
