Anne and I went out on another snowshoe hike in this great land trust down the road from us. Wet snow made it rough going but the large field we go around before going up the “mountain” was untouched and the light was flat enough so that it looked like the moon. The clouds gave it some nice contrast. I took a few images here, that was it for the entire hike.

I shot these a few days ago with the Ricoh GR after the last semi-big snowfall that filled in the trail my wife and I made here. Breaking this trail solo was a lot of work but also, a lot of fun.

And, on the back side of the hill the light was low so I got some nice long shadows from trees (and me).

Washed down a few ibuprofen with beer on returning home. And, went out again yesterday to do the entire loop again with my wife, who I think is now hooked on snowshoeing.

Covering up

Covering Up :: Chinatown NYC

Flickr member David Guest used his Fuji X100S to capture this great image of three people in Chinatown, New York City taking cover in the blizzard we’re having in the northeast now.

Note: Up here in northwest Connecticut we’ve got about six inches of snow on the ground if that. It’s blowing hard and still snowing but this is not THE BIG ONE the media has played it up to be. Weather happens and unfortunately between the Weather Channel and the internet things are getting a bit too amped up every time an event happens.
