    Yesterday I woke up to some overnight snow.

    DSC03593-XL.

    My daughter was upset there was no School delay; she had to hustle to catch the bus.

    DSC03595-X2.

    The snow made for lovely scenes.

    DSC03598-X2.

    and didn't lay on the streets, which is the best kind of snow.

    DSC03607-X2.

    DSC03609-X2.

    Another storm hit however, in the afternoon. This one stronger, making driving home an adventure.

    DSC03616-X2.

    DSC03617-X2.

    I was happy to be in my 4wd Honda CRV.

    DSC03620-X2.

    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.

    DSC03630-X2.

    DSC03632-X2.

    DSC03634-X2.

    Here's the snow's final damage. Nowhere near the 2 feet + we got in January but it was heavier, giving a different look.

    DSC03635-X2.

    The camera has now replaced the sled as my favorite snow toy. Signs of middle age.

    Love 'em all, especially the last two!
    Should I presume those were with your trusty Sony/Zeiss 24?

    Terrific images! I have never thought to use a flash to bring out the snow flakes.

    One minor suggestion would be to crop out the light on the far right. Other than that, I agree, a fantastic image.
