12/27/2010: Snow on the Little

As I post this snow-storm image from last week, we are in the middle of our first real blizzard of the winter in Maine. It is not light enough to see the damage yet, but the wind is howling around the house and there is snow stuck in the window screens. It is not scheduled to pass off until late afternoon. Should be interesting. 10-18 inches of snow. Watch this space!

This shot, however was during a much more gentle storm, as you can see from the snow built up on the branches. This is one of my favorite views at Rachel Carson NWR, where the Little River makes it’s classic “S” bend on its way to the sea. It is an all weather view, just as attractive here in the snow with snow closing the horizon, as it is in full summer with a dramatic sky.

    That creek is flowing backwards!

    It is a very nice, well exposed image. I know it is a good shot becauase it reminds me immediately of the falicy of snow… SURE, it looks beautiful in that picture, but imaging that 30 times thicker with your car buried under it.

    I don’t have to, 3 weeks ago I woke up, it was like 3-4 days later I finaly got into my car and with help, got it back into traffic.
