Saturday Snapshot: Ski Lift

Ski Lift By CRash

Second snowmobile trip to Mt. Spokane.  It was cloudy, but the ski lift rose out of the clouds.  So did we, climbing up to take a look at the view.

Saturday Snapshot: The White Tree

The White Tree By CRash

First snowmobile trip of the year!  That means lots of snowy pictures. :)  This spot on the mountain was treated to the full force of the wind, so my fingers went numb.  However, all that wind meant that trees like this one got a heavy dose of flocking.

I particularly like this photo because the white tree has a face: two dark vertical spots midway up the tree form the eyes and the larger horizontal spot below them serves as a scowling mouth.  The errant branch sticking out on the left side might be interpreted as a shaking fist.  Overall, I think its expression is akin to: “Get off my lawn, you whippersnappers!”

Saturday Snapshot: First Snow

First Snow of 2012, Mead WA

Photo of the first snowflakes of the year at our house, shot on the night of my birthday using my birthday present: a new Canon digital camera.  It captured falling snow at night, which my old camera would have been hard-pressed to manage.  I did a little more processing on my computer because I liked this one with high color saturation.  Thanks Mom and Dad!
