Morning photo: More snow?

Going with the flow …

After a heavy, wet mid-May snowfall, I pointed the car headlights a willow during the twilight hour to create this illustration.

FRISCO — So it snowed, again, and again … It’s starting to feel like it’s snowed almost every day in May, so rather than taking pictures of the first wildflowers (they’re out there; photos coming soon), I found myself revisiting a few familiar spots to get one last look at them with their winter coats on. Is May snow any different from December or January snow? I don’t know for sure, but I do know that the quality of the light is dramatically different, making for some fine scenes on a recent morning around Summit County. Visit our online gallery at Fine Art America for more Summit County landscape and nature images.
