Don't really know what to say about this happy accident. A couple of hours after yesterday's shot I saw the snow had started. My wife arrived back home with the boy and her sister from a day of shopping. After greeting them and helping with the resettlement I realized I'd waited too long and missed a great photo opportunity...the storm was too far along, the flakes no longer random and fluffy. Ah well. With encouragement I jumped in the trusty AWD SUV anyway. In a few minutes I was back at the lake, and looking through the viewfinder I saw only white. In fact the snow was so thick that autofocus simply couldn't cope. This frame is one of the last of the few I took...the subject closer to me to minimize the massive number of flakes. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and again I've heard. Guess it's true.
