Surprise!


As I was leaving class Monday night it was snowing like mad. By yesterday morning everything was covered in white. I captured this snow covered bush on my way into the office. By noon it was but a memory.

A beautiful picture, Randy! Here in Romania is the same: some days seem like spring, then it is cold again or it even snows...

Oh dear! We are supposed to get more snow this afternoon, followed by rain, then freezing. Your shot is very pretty though! :))

Oh, wow. SNOW? Well, if it was gone by noon that is the perfect snowfall in my book.

It's the winter saying goodbye...

Pretty picture, but after a while snow gets too much and we all just want Spring!

That's the best kind of snowfall...one that leaves a memory quickly!

Beautiful shot, Randy!

While here we've been enjoying beautiful end-of-winter days, clear sky and sunny, though still quite cold...
I like your way to record this memorable morning!
God bless you!

I love this, endless fractals! It looks really interesting with a covering of snow.

Have a great day!

Winter's last mad burst in Santa Fe. It looked pretty while it lasted.

L.D. said...

A temporary marvel. How Zen!

Kate said...

What is so terrific about snowfalls in Santa Fe is that it disappears so quickly, unlike here in Minnesota.

JM said...

Now that's a beautiful image!

At least you had camera in hand, ready to capture the snowy surprise. Now the fleeting moment will last.
