What do most people do when the next snow storm comes? My guess is they stock up on food and hunker down. Me? I grab bird seed, my photo blind, camera gear, and head out to the local park. And since I see very few vehicles while I am out there, I am guessing I am correct on my “hunkering down of others” theory.
Unless I HAVE to travel, I always look forward to the next heavy snow storm; even in March, April, May… Yesterday’s storm was awesome, from my standpoint. We had approximately 7” of fresh snow, with big flakes.
There is a place at our local park where a person or people put seed out on the ground for birds throughout the winter. I took bird seed along to sprinkle it on top of the snow, where the birds could find it easier. And the birds put on quite a show.
I spent 2+ hours sitting in my ground blind taking photos. The blind was mainly used to keep the snow off of me and my camera. But it also helped mask some of my movement. The photos below represent only a very small portion of the 1500 images I took.
I am glad I am very familiar with the park and the roads back into town. Everything was white and heavy snow was falling. My knowledge helped me judge where the road was.
More snow if forecast for this coming Sunday. Sadly, only about 1” of new snow is predicted. Hmm, I wonder where I will be.
