blue crystals of snow blow across a drift on a cold winter day

Blowing Drifting Snow

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

Starting to think about snow. It snowed last night. Not very much. But it was there. Warm, wet snow. Not like this. This was a freezing sub-zero day a few winters ago. The snow was just dry little ice crystals. Drifting like sand across the fields.
