Let it Snow

3 Aug

For the last week there has been the promise of snow today.  The predictions varied depending on which ‘expert’ you listened to – the media hounds and those who wish they were forecasters and the experienced staff from the Bureau of Meteorology @BOM_Tas  Either way the chances were looking good at waking to a winter wonderland at our home.

At 5am a sneak peak in the cold proved that snow had indeed fallen and the temperature sure felt like the chances were good it would still be there at daybreak.

By the time I decided to brave the snow well rugged in two woolly jumpers and my ugg boots I found plenty of white fluff to photograph.

I don’t think we will be sitting on the deck having a bar-be-que today.

The outdoor table had a lovely coating of white.  Mumma Bear and Baby Bear paw prints, oh my how much Baby Bear has grown.

I’ve taken similar shots to this in the past with frost on the railing.

Seems someone is happy to see the fluffy white stuff.

Trying to capture snow falling and a neutral density filter.  The first time using the filter, so I’m only guessing at settings.

It was snowing in this panorama.  The sun is out now and the snow is melting as I type.
