The First Snow..if you can't beat it..

We had our first significant snowfall of the season this winter..which technically it isn't yet..it is still fall.

I woke in the morning to behold a heavy, wet, snow covering everything outside. I grabbed my camera and started snapping like mad. My husband had taken the screen off the windows so it was easy to open them and get some great shots.

In the first one I used my regular lens and created the mood I wanted in Photoshop.

In the second I had my telephoto lens attached because I wanted a close up of the branches laden down with snow.  

I really don't like winter but I figured if you can't beat them you might as well enjoy it.
