Cool Snow

OK, I know the title to this post is a little redundant, but yesterday while I was supposed to be working away at taxes and job leads, Jess called from work to order me to go on an little photo safari. My prey, as it were, was some of the cool snow crystals that blanketed just about every surface around Boulder County. It would have been even cooler if we’d had one of those gorgeous blue bird days we so often get following any sort of precipitation, but of course, if that had happened, the crystals would have melted off before I’d gotten out to photograph the snow anyway. Here are a few of the better shots.

Note: for those desperately awaiting Christmas pics, etc. your wait is nearly over. Keep checking back! For now, just snow. . .

Another shot of the aspen tree. You can see how overcast the sky was while I was shooting. Just imagine the shot with a beautiful blue sky. Maybe I’ll GIMP it (can that be a verb?) just for fun.
