The “polar vortex” is bearing down on us here in Michigan yet again, and I got it into my head that I ought to go out and document the winter/snow while it was here.
That was a terrible idea.
Because we’ve had so much snow, and the weather has see-sawed back and forth between above-freezing and bitterly cold, our yard is full of knee deep snow with a layer of ice on top. Snow pants do nothing for you when your foot breaking through the snow has to first go through a rock hard layer of ice that shoves your pant cuff up to your knee, exposing ankle and shin to the powder below. I had planned to go exploring in the woods for shots, but only made it to the back of our yard before my legs got too cold and scraped up. As a result, not a whole heck of a lot of pictures, but a few none the less.
I expect that I’ll appreciate these more come August or so.
I may attempt another shoot before the winter is over, but not until I dig out some snowshoes!
