Frosty Foliage

We dodged a major bullet here in Southeast MA from yesterday's storm. There are places out in Western MA that got 27 inches of snow. There are power outages all across New England. In fact, our friends one town over from us lost power. The winds here near the coast were gusting to 60 mph last night. It was wild.
This morning Diane and I headed out at 8am to look for some snow/foliage shots. We only got about an inch of heavy wet snow here....just enough to pretty things up. The problem from a photography standpoint was the wind. It knocked all of the snow off the trees. It was pretty nonetheless and Diane found us the perfect place to go today. We went to the War Memorial Park in West Bridgewater.
The warm morning light was gorgeous as the light was reflecting off the leaves in this next shot.

Another one of the smaller waterfalls

The snow was melting rapidly with the warmth of the sun






Thanks Diane for a wonderful morning. It was great to be out in the fresh crisp air!

  2. It actually wasn't that cold. The wind made it feel colder, but as the morning went on, the winds weren't as strong. It actually was quite refreshing to be out there!

  3. Beautiful photos Carol. They are so clear and sharp. Who would have thought, red leaves still on the tree with snow on the ground!!

  4. I know it. It's a photographers dream come true. We are just very lucky we didn't get hammered like they did just a few miles from here though, huh?
