Blowing Snow on Billwood

Blowing Snow on Billwood

On This Date: Photo taken 2/15/2007.

I’m nearly (and early) to work and driving into the sunrise. The sky’s pretty, and there’s a bit of haze.

This photo’s got some technical issues–looks like both the lens and the windshield were dirty–but I like it anyway. Trying to clean the image up just rearranged the problems due to the sky’s color gradient. So here’s a photo with random spots.


The problem with February is the snow. I like photographing snow, but the result is day after day of drifts, and our driveway, and footprints, and the barn down the road. And cats. Lots of cats. About this point every year I begin to get impatient for spring.

I tried to break the pattern in 2012 with a self-portrait. I took 18 of ’em over the course of the day. Hated all of ’em. Still don’t like ’em.

Fortunately my birthday’s coming. By late Feb I prefer Traverse City’s snow to Mulliken’s.
