March Snowstorm

One morning in early March, I woke up to a snowstorm. Thankfully, I made it to the day job in one piece. But the snow kept coming. I think it finally stopped around noon maybe? I know that it was for sure done before I left for home. Anyway, none of that was really important to the story.

On my way home, I saw several sights that looked better covered in snow, and I debated whether I should drive back with my camera. I wanted to capture the snow since it will (hopefully) be the last time I see it until the end of the year, but I didn’t really want to drive again. I’m trying to take my camera out more often than never, and I’ve been neglecting my business for far too long. So I compromised and wandered around my backyard for twenty minutes or so.

My First Image

My first image was a stick stuck in the middle of a huge puddle on the edge of our yard and the neighbor’s yard. It’s actually a low spot that floods every year, more than a puddle. I have always enjoyed photographing this area when I stay home. And this is usually the first place I look.

My Second Image

Then I walked around to the front out our house and I saw our cedar bushes with a blanket of snow on them. I thought that that composition would make for a cute holiday card, so I tried to angle myself in such a way that our house wasn’t in the photo. And then I walked a little further and saw the opening between the shrubs and our house, so I took more photos. The birds weren’t too happy with me being there, so I moved on.

My Third Image

My third and final image was a little pine tree. We had planted it a few years ago, and I knew I had to take a photo of it. Once I got that shot, I started to head back in. But then I realized that I hadn’t made any TikToks. So I walked in reverse to make them.
