Over the last couple of weeks the temperature has really gotten warm, resulting in a lot of snow runoff. It’s great in some ways but not others. Yesterday we had a little storm come through adding a few inches of fresh powder, which was great for the skiers, and of course yielded a couple of nice images. This was just a quick click at sunset with a little bit of light hitting the top of the peaks up in Hyalite Canyon.
However upsetting the tittle might be, i am actually referring to the weather. It’s finally that time of the year again when the temperature drops and the snow never melts. Today was a cold day well into the negatives and it never warmed up. With the end of the school year approaching, my time for going out and enjoying the area is limited. I thought i would show these two images from Yellowstone since i was thinking about the natural patterns made in the snow. A simple shot with a simple b&w conversion done later.
This obviously isn’t about the snow but more about the current and bubbles in the water. It was the division between the dark and light almost right down the middle that made this really interesting to me. Even natural it would seem, has a evil and a good side. I would do my scary laugh now but I’m tired.

It’s finally cold enough and white enough to consider it winter time. With the nice storm we got a little while ago and the dump 2 nights ago, the town and the hills are covered. The roads are slick unfortunately making for more accidents. It also means that the usual places for critters are shifting yet again. I had no luck this past weekend and thus was forced to do more of favorites, landscapes.
At least the snow brings in another dimension with the landscapes. Makes black and whites a bit more interesting too.

Today the gang went into the park for a chance to unwind and goof around before the paticipants arrived. We had some fun shooting the breeze and the steam coming up in the cold.
