Day 44 (409) – February 13, 2019
Started this morning thinking that I might end up having another day with cabin fever. School started with a 2 hour delay, and given the fact that freezing rain was still falling at bedtime, and that I was awakened by heavy winds this morning, I questioned whether the roads would be free of ice after two additional hours. They were and my temporary isolation was complete. Thank goodness to because I am not sure I would be innovative enough to do another depth of field study with white puffy snow covered trees. Now then I didn’t totally give up on the snow covered tree part, I kept that in as tribute to the past storm. Have you ever seen something that you just know would be an amazing photo, but no matter how hard you try a photo just cannot do it justice. This was one of those photos. I do really like how it came out, but the majesty is kind of lost. All along the ride home, I was confronted with a landscape of the typical mountain views, but this time with a flair. The top third had a pretty white coat, while the second third it really lightened up until it faded away at the bottom. It really summarized my drive home. When I left work, there was barely any trace of a snow fall, but as I started the climb home, the grasses slowly covered until the time I got home where the landscape was completely covered in a blanket of snow. It really was a pretty cool comparison. I just wish you could have seen it in person. It was so much more breathtaking.
