Okie-Dokie. Who would have thought that in WNY in the month of January there would barely be any snow? I’ve been living in this area for more then 60 years, and I’m witnessing the unthinkable. So now I have to hunt for snow? A photographer friend told me that south of where we live, there is 6 inches (15.2 cm) of snow on the ground, a whopping 6 inches (15.2 cm). Friends, we don’t blink an eye at 6 feet (1.8 meters) of snow around here at this time of year. For me to get excited over 6 inches (15.2 cm), is saying a whole lot!
I hope to have time to get in my car and drive southward to see for myself this snow miracle in order to bring to you snowscapes. Today, depending on how my morning goes and what I can find out, I may go even though it is my scheduled gym day. Gym can be on Thursday. That snow may not last to be here on Thursday so I must prioritize. And for you, my treasured follower, I’ll try. (smile)
I did manage to get some fun snow pictures last week when I ran out with my camera as white lay on the ground. I didn’t expect what I came upon as I was rewarded for getting out with my camera. Wanna see what I saw? Saucers with kids and yes adults too flying down a white snow hill is what I saw and now you see too.
Serious moments at the top of hill, getting ready to go down. Strategy is written all over the little girl’s face with the blue saucer (left).
Not sure about this …
Dad and daughter … daughter got twisted around, going down the hill backward while Dad was not sure if he liked sledding.
All right now this is more like it! SNOW!
OH OH! Three boy pileup with a potential oncoming crash. All kids were unharmed. I was laughing so hard when I saw this unfold.
Is this as fast as this thing goes?
Father and son flying downhill. Dad is enjoying. Not so sure about son who has his eyes closed. And yes, that man is wearing sneakers. Brrr ….
These boys got turned around too, going down the hill first sidewise then backwards. As I watched they both were grinning.
It may not look like it, but every picture seen here was of motion. I had such a high shutter speed that when I depressed my shutter, it immediately froze what I was shooting. I realized when I was viewing these images to edit them, it’s not easy to portray motion when the camera freezes the shot, unless there is a lot more action then what is seen here. Some of the shots snow was seen flying, and the little girl with the cute hat on in the second picture, her tassels were flying as well. Also, the little girl going backwards with her hair whipping her face with Dad trying to stop his ride with his foot portrayed motion.
Hope you enjoyed!! Are you smiling? Have a great day!
