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.
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!”
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!
