First Snow of 2012

Last night, the first snow of 2012 fell. First thing I do after breakfast: grab the camera-go photograph.

The roads weren’t too icy to drive on, though walking in worn running shoes made uphill climbs an unnecessarily difficult chore.

The first subject I searched for was crystals of frost… But there really weren’t any, so I had to resort to shooting macros of the snow itself. Proper exposure was about as tricky to achieve as proper focus.
