Yesterday I woke up to some overnight snow.
My daughter was upset there was no School delay; she had to hustle to catch the bus.
The snow made for lovely scenes.
and didn't lay on the streets, which is the best kind of snow.
Another storm hit however, in the afternoon. This one stronger, making driving home an adventure.
I was happy to be in my 4wd Honda CRV.
It didn't take me long to take more photos from the comfort of my home. I used the pop-up flash to illuminate the snow flakes.
Here's the snow's final damage. Nowhere near the 2 feet + we got in January but it was heavier, giving a different look.
The camera has now replaced the sled as my favorite snow toy. Signs of middle age.
I've had the A7 for a year now, just getting around to joining some forums. The majority of my use is for on and off-road motorcycle trips so the size/weight of A7 is perfect. I'm not a sophisticated user, my pics are point and shoot in-camera jpegs shot mostly in Program. My stuff is geared toward sharing our trips with friends/family via the Adventure Rider forum. Anyway, I'll use this thread to share a few shots with you folks.

I have not posted in this lovely forum more than 6 months. I have decided to go and hide back to my dark wet dungeon to work my craft.
I have decided to stay in isolation to try to put things together and work the gear as much as I could.
During that time I have put my self two restrictions that I have followed up to today.
1. I could not risk family economics. No charging credits cards 1k euros in an evening. Use what you have until it breaks
2. I should not see the sun if I could not see me improving.
3. Limit forum precense and spend the time with improving my photography ability
During these months I have tried to increase my exposure to failure considerably and I am proud to report that I have failed in many different ways over and over.
Current future focus is to improve
1. my reaction time
2. time I need to shoot a scene. I should be able to shoot different scenarios and settings within few minutes only
3. increase my exposure to human beings
I try to share my experience, my failures of my trip how I found my ideas how to shoot and where over my facebook account. Pretty much is like a small trip of what I experience (if someone wants to hear about my failures and how I try to put pieces together let me know).
Thanks a lot this lovely community for all the support
