Winter Scenes! We've had the usual January snow, with the temperature hovering around the freezing level. This creates a unique effect in the trees. It doesn't last long, but while it does, it is completely different than any other time during the year.
I know the snow and the trees are the main items in these shots - but I like the changing background of the sky. I think the occasional deep blue gives some of the shots a nice contrast and brings out the true beauty of winter scenes.
A few days of warmth, and the scene will change again. Right now, though, more light snow is expected, so the scene should stay the same for at least a few days.
While these shots may seem ordinary now, they will look anything but ordinary in July!
For a little perspective, below are a few shots I took before the snow hit.
