Default Weather--Waves of Snow and Water

The first photo is from last years's winter. The fenceline drifts looked to me like waves of water
The second shots I took last week at Milford Lake near my home in central Kansas. It was a really windy day and the waves were coming in to this little cove at a good clip. I think I could have tried body surfing! The water was still a little cool though.

I love the first shot, that's some snow. The others are very nice, especially when you think that the waves are on a lake, not the ocean (those are pretty good sized!). But that first one is really special.

Hi Spedangie

I agree, you've captured some great snow waves / weather effect in the 1st photo. I've seen that with snow when I used to live in Europe, you caught it well!

Body surfing on those small waves? I don't know about you - but I find body surfing requires BIG and strong waves! (Here in Australia, I enjoy going to the beach and body-surfing or body-boarding, as opposed to 'stand up' surfing).

Hope you have fun with the warmer weather you have there now.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

To get that snow shot about did me in. I waded into the ditch to get parallel to the line of drifts, and then to get a sight line even with the "waves" I kept crouching lower and lower. The problem is that my knees just weren't happy and I ended up literally sitting in the snow. NOW I have to figure out how to get myself back up while keeping my camera out of the snow. It was a real struggle. I was afraid I would have to call my husband to come and help pull me up. How embarrassing! I finally managed it, and did get some great shots for my trouble!
