We got 6 inches of snow in the Fredericksburg area yesterday! I thought I’d still be able to get away with not shoveling the driveway, but then I remembered my husband is returning home from a business trip tonight and he’d probably like to be able to drive into the garage. We have a 70 foot driveway, so it was a workout!
But after the work, we played. Here’s my snow angel. The snow was crispy and hard to break into.
I remembered to practice a little backlighting for this week’s Project 52 theme, as the sun was beginning to get low. I got a few I like, so watch for them next Tuesday!
Shoveling created artwork as balls of snow rolled across the snow-covered lawn, drawing lines and curves.
And yesterday the wind created these little snowdrifts (as well as some bigger ones).d
Rhiannon drew a smiley in the snow.
Caroline threatened me with a snowball.
I was glad to see that even Ian, who has not had much prior interest in the snow, cheerfully joined us for a while. I’m sorry I chopped off his hands here, but otherwise I like the photo for its emotion and action. I should have switched to the wider lens sooner.
The next photo is actually a still I captured from a video, in Lightroom, the first time I’ve ever tried the technique. Yay! I was impressed by my son’s sledding technique, especially considering his lack of experience. He jumped into the sled, making it zoom down the hill.
After a few trips down the hill with the sleds, the girls pondered fort-building. Ultimately, it was decided to wait until their Dad is home tomorrow so he can share his fort-building experience. Thankfully, there will still be lots of snow on the ground tomorrow.
