We had experienced a modest 8 inch snowfall overnight and wanted to get some pictures with the new snow. I had taken several of the lake and the river by the house and was about to go back into the house. I then realized I could walk out onto my dock (carefully) and grab some shots from there using my tripod. I intentionally framed to eliminate the gray sky. The resulting image is a 5 shot HDR and my best of the year.
