Default Winter- on Cape Cod

Means photo opps to me. The weather here can be ferocious one day and simply beautiful the next.
Here's a photo taken of Paine's Creek after a Winter storm.



Today, I went out to the Trout Hatchery located in our town of Sandwich. It's a great place to take photos of birds when the rest of the area is covered with snow.
And I got a surprise:

I wondered if you were here during the storm. How did you fair?

The first image is so perfect..the cape cod coast in winter...beautiful.

Love the second image...flight against a beautiful blue sky.

Did you notice if the boardwalk was damaged while you were in Sandwich?

Hi Vanessa,
Yes we were hunkered down at our house during the storm. Lost power for almost 3 days. But, the generator gave us a chance to keep the house from getting too cold. And a chance to get some water as well.

Have not been to the Sandwich as yet. But, also have not heard anything either. Which is usually a good indicator that the boardwalk survived.

Both pictures are just awesome! I love the first one, what a beautiful scene. Hope you are all well in the hard-hit east.

Thanks Leslie.
The biggest issue with this storm was the temperature was right around 32 degrees which produced heavy wet snow that fell for a very long time, When the wind started later that night, it just caused many trees to fall over. At one point 87% of our town was without power power I think the last section got the power back on today.

As much as I like that sunset shot at Paines creek.I'm really excited about getting a chance to catch that pair of swan flying overhead. It's the first time I've ever seen that.
