Weight of Winter

Hagge Feb HDR Efex6-10A My cousin Edie suggested I need a seasonal picture from the same vantage point atop Lynd's Hill as the nice summer shot posted yesterday. I did do one last February when at least 2 feet of snow blanketed the high ground. Actually, this was the first time at this location for me and I had no idea what was beneath me and only the top of the rock was exposed. The weather and been snowy but late in the day the cloud cover to the west was breaking and the sun began to filter through. The sun is about the same height in both pictures but the summer picture was taken 2.5 hours later in the day. Nikon D300 with Tamron [email protected], f20, ISO 200. Below I show the pictures side by side and BTW the adirondack chair is under the deck.

I love both shots for different reasons. Amazing what difference a day, or in this case a season makes.

I can't believe this is the same shot several months apart. Beautiful in both settings. Now we wait for another one this fall. Like Edie suggested could happen, we are just glad you did not drop off the rock in the winter.

What a sharp contrast. The snow drift in winter is impressive - You could have fallen deep in the snow, and not been found until spring. I definitely prefer summer! But the winter shot would be enhanced and more personal with the adirondack chair ... to me, the chair makes it much more than just a beautiful scenic shot.
