The snow is changing
I remember learning in school many years ago that the Eskimos had many words for snow. Wikipedia tells me that it is an urban legend. Never having known an Eskimo, I don’t know for sure but I do know that there are different kinds or stages of snow.
There are two kinds of snow that lend themselves to great winter shots, heavily drifted and freshly fallen. Both kinds of snow have textures and unique shapes that lend themselves to photos.
Around Edmonton, it’s been a few days since we’ve had any fresh snow and it’s starting to show. The snow becomes flat. It loses its luster and sparkle. It also starts to look a little dirty where it’s melted down to leaves or blown dirt. So, with the warmer weather the photo opportunities become less obvious.
On the bright side, I’ve got a little trip planned for pics and hope to have some posted here soon.
All the best and happy shooting,
