There’s no picture like snow picture like no picture I know … (sounds like…)

Snow is a great opportunity for photographs. Yes, it helps if it has stopped falling first, so that you don’t need to keep wiping the snowflakes off your lens. And that heavy overcast sky is a bit of a pain. But when the skies clear and snow is still there, make the most of it. Especially when a good snow is no longer as common as it used to be. Yes, I know, it’s not as good as the snow in 2010, but let’s make the most of it …

And this photo would look better with a train crossing the bridge … but who knows, maybe one day they will again?

And reprising the quasi-musical theme that this post began with, here’s a “Snow Boat” … (sounds like…)
