Speak French?

On a quick day trip to Montreal and everyone speaks French to me. I don’t speak a word. Not sure if they are disappointed or not.

It’s been snowing on and off for the last 24 hours. Pretty cool. Also people are out all about doing their stuff. It’s nice. Down south it would paralyze most everyone and everything.

Getting First Serious Snow 

This Fall have been very dry in Colorado. In the last few weeks we had couple small snow falls here in the foothills but it melted quickly. It’s about to change, at least for a few days. We are getting some snow! Now I just need to get my Telemark skies ready before the weekend…Hopefully missing parts arrive in the next couple days.

Winter Paradise, Finally

If you recall, in my yesterday’s post I mentioned about grey skies and rain. Well, weather man was right, it started snowing in the evening and it actually stuck to the ground. This morning we woke up to gorgeous blue skies with everything covered in beautiful white snow.  This is the first for Winston-Salem during this winter. It seams like we had continuous Fall moving into Spring and finally we had some winter action. When I woke up I grabbed my camera and went to my backyard to snap a few photos. Have to document probably the only snow we will get here before it all melts down.

Mt Hood

Yesterday I posted an image from a very hot place. So in todays post it almost feels appropriate to post an image from an opposite spectrum, from somewhere really cold. Mt Hood in Oregon is perfect candidate for it and I have photo that will fit the bill. This photo was taken very recently during my short  visit to pacific north west. I took a ton of photos over one day period, hopefully many will provide slightly different perspective so I can share them without too much repeat of the same scene <sigh>.

This photo was taken about 30 minutes before sunset. I was staying overnight at the Timberline Lodge and went for some hiking before sunset and then the following morning during sunrise. As you can see I’m very near the top of the Mt Hoot alpine, this was taken somewhere midway of the last lift line that takes you up the mountain. They close lifts at 4PM, with sunset at around 5:10PM I was all along up there on the mountain. Pretty cool.

Most of you know it, but here is quick reminder, if you want to see any of my images in higher resolution then all you need to do is to click on it. They will open up from my photo gallery at smugmug.com. Enjoy!

Green Dots

Today we had our first snow, and snow it was! It was quite a surprise for me actually. I thought that it will rain some, but then around noon it started snowing, and it snowed for about 4-5 hours straight. Ground is too warm for it to stick, but it was very happy on the grass and trees. We took a walk and I did a few shots. I had to use my plastic camera tube to protect camera from the falling snow, I’m glad I had one because it was really wet.

This is on the grounds of Salem College in Old Salem. It was really pretty and peaceful there. I liked how these green dots were so visible down the line next to this fence. On the left side of the fence is an old Moravian cemetery.
