The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #55

Surprise!
Well...not that much of a surprise as the
weather folks have been telling us for a few
days to expect these snow flakes. It's fun to
wake up to a bluish white world.
I can hear the kids now, "Snow Day!"

Nice shot!

I'm of two minds when it comes to the bluish tint we get in snow photos.

On one hand, it's very pretty and makes almost anything look nice.
(It worked well in this case, for example)

On the other, the whiteness of the snow isn't what it could be, which is also very pretty.

Eric- you are so right- I raced out and took another shot and now have it posted as #55.5. I like it a lot better! Once again, good advice from "Bubba"
