284Days #82 Midnight Spring Snow Storm

My Midnight photo on March 21, 2012

The snowflakes were big and wet. I love the way they photographed as stings of pearls. Such an unusual occurrence for the Portland metro area this late in March. It snowed hard for hours, but with the temperature hovering at 34 there was little hope of it sticking.

The Walkway and Plants are Covered

If it had been only a couple of degrees colder we would have had a foot of snow. As it turned out the snow tapered off about 1:00 am and the sound of it melting and big hunks falling out of the trees woke me up by 6 am. After a quick shower and getting ready for work I was outside taking photos by 7:15. It was just light enough to capture some very pretty shots and dark enough that the tripod was a necessity.

I felt very good about most of the shots I took. I wish processing them to a usable size was a speedier process. Hopefully I’ll be able to share some of them tomorrow. I love photos of emerging spring flowers covered in snow and water droplets. It was a rewarding day.

Until tomorrow,
