This mornings first glance out the window said it all, Mother Nature had dished out a clean white blanket of snow for New Year's Day. Soon everything started to look like a big black and white etching. By early noon I could no longer contain myself, I had to go out and take some pictures of the quarter size snow flakes tumbling from the heavens. I constructed a camera shelter out of a plastic milk gallon container and mounted it with my Nikon Coolpix on the tripod. Just as I was set up and ready to shoot, I felt like I was in the right place at the right time.
