Default E-3 hoar frost shots

Got up this morning, looked out the kitchen window and seen the mountain trees were white capped on top, had to drive to West Virginia first thing, so came back on the mountain ridges to see if I could get a couple shots. Fired off a few but soon realized I was way under dressed so only stayed about an hour. The first shot is e-3 with 12-60, the rest are e-3 & original 40-150mm.

And one of some winter supplies, for the mountain birds.

....nice Charles, it does look cold and an hour would be enough for me too, it brings to mind for me Lyle Lovett's rendition of 'Baby It's Cold Outside' that I recently heard. I really like the first image.

I particularly like the 4th and 5th ones, but they would have less meaning without the first one to set the context.

Hi Charles,

A very nice series of images. I think based on the amount of snow we're getting here and I'm sure you're getting, we'll both be able to go out tomorrow and take a bunch more landscape images with snow everywhere.

We're getting walloped pretty good here, at the moment.

I hope you and your's are safe and warm this evening.

Zig

The meteorologists in the DC area were stellar with their forecast for this storm, predicting anywhere from 4" to 14" of snow here. We got 4. Four snowflakes.

In fairness, the reason for the change probably was that I had brought my winter boots up from the basement in preparation.

Is everything OK at your house?

Good morning Ted,

We have power, so I could make coffee this morning. Life is good

Living near the coast has it's benefits as the storm swept up the coast, it brought warmer temps along with it near the shore. We actually got a lot of rain overnite. I woke up to less snow on the ground than when we went to bed last night. Now, we have the winds to contend with as there have been wind gusts up to 89mph recorded on the Cape this morning. Looks like the worst of the storm has passed, now the winds need to blow through.

Thanks all, Zig we are entering our 4th week with some sort of snow here everyday except for 2 days that we didn't get any. The storm that you east coast guys are getting is corralled east of the Appalachians, so we were protected from that part, but its 18 degrees here with gusty winds.
