January Snow

Ocracoke didn't get a lot of snow yesterday, but it sure was fun to see it coming down. I'm guessing we got about a half inch. I took the first two pictures yesterday afternoon as it was snowing. This morning Howard Street and the trees didn't have much snow on them, so I took the other two photos to show you a little of what it looked like at about 9 am.

    Great Pics! I sure love the snow!

  3. Oh wow, these pictures are absolutely gorgeous! It's nice to see a little snow on the coastal areas... I sure wish I was there to see it myself. Your blog always leaves me missing that place.

    You have a developing eye for composition . The first picture --if the fence led to a diminishing point a bit higher up on an established horizon it IMHO would have balanced the picture -- the fence is great subject matter the wreath tells us the season the subject matter in the second picture very good if it was to show the snow which it did two things could have been accomplished capturing more of a charming house being dusted by snow potential post card here I see aside line the fourth picture again excellent subject matter bike you think summer but her bike in winter great juxtaposition but perhaps a tighter crop and have the bike or a portion of the bike be the element of composition

    Developing eye my foot. the poster needs to read the notation --click on image for full size picture-- but they are right about the postcard business

    I think the pictures capture the mood of the island under its blanket of snow just perfectly. Don't feel any need to critique unless invited. I was taught that was BAD MANNERS.
