Seasons First Snow

This past weekend included a great clinging snow and the timing was perfect. It started snowing Saturday morning and continued into the evening and the reason this is perfect is because often times the cleanup crews wait till it stops to clear sidewalks and this was exactly the case. I was out for five hours Saturday night and then could not sleep because I was thinking what I could get Sunday morning so I woke up at 3am because I could not sleep as my mind mulled over my options. I just talked a friend this week who asked if I was doing anything Christmas related with the local town this year and this was the perfect chance to fill that request.This shot took an hour to do as I started in the dark around 5am and lit all the trees and buildings and then had to wait for some color to appear in the sky. Often times snow like this falls off right away but I had a good 24 hour window to capture some neat scenes.
