Winter Reflection

Black Earth Watershed

Salmo Pond

Winter has come in earnest to Wisconsin. The bit of snow we had earlier this week was a tiny taste of things to come taken. I went out to take photographs tonight and decided to wait until better light. The snow was heavy, nearly a white-out, and there’s not much to photograph when it’s dark and snowing that hard.

School has already been canceled for Wednesday and many companies are telling non-essential employees to stay home. I checked the weather map, hoping maybe to see a lull in the snow, but no such luck. There is snow stacked up all to the west – half of Wisconsin, all of Iowa and Minnesota, and reaching as far as South Dakota and Nebraska. And all headed this way.

Bet tomorrow I’ll have plenty of snow for a wintry photo! But I think it will have to be from a backyard perspective.

  1. It’s been a little while since I’ve visited your blog and it’s looking good. I like the new look.

    The one thing I miss about living a little more to the south is snow. We do get one good snow, but not quite this early. Love the glow in this image.
