Saturday Photo: Last Snow Studies

The first day after the spring equinox, we had a mini-storm at twilight. As is often the case at this time of year, the wet snow fell in huge flakes and covered every surface.

The top two photos were taken as darkness came, the first with available light, the second with a flash which turned the flakes into white Christmas tree balls floating down from the sky. The third shows what it looked like the morning after, before the sun came out and melted the snow enough for it to fall the rest of the way to the ground.

Since then we've had brilliant sunshine, but temperatures cold enough to keep all the snow from melting. It may be the end of March, but the north wind is still blowing.
