After a relatively snowless winter through January here in West Virginia, I was grateful for two recent, descent snow falls! The one in late February was about 6 inches and the other from just a few days ago was about 10 inches. This amount of snow makes picture-taking more enjoyable as it smooths out the landscape, hides a lot of distracting elements in forests and fields, and completely transforms elements in creation that would normally be bland, ugly or dreary at this time of year.
So of course I went out to take pictures! I wanted to utilize these unique circumstances to gather picture examples for the Basic DSLR Photography course I’m putting together, but I took plenty of snapshots along the way just for the sheer fun of it. Here are a few of them:
“God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. For he saith to the snow, “”Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.” –Job 37:5-6
