The Day After, the storm

This movie requires Flash Player 9

We woke up this morning to a grogeous, warm sun bouncing light off the new snow. We had a pretty good xmas day storm that left another two feet of snow. With new snow comes new icecycles and my annual quest to make something photographic of them. Jake just happened to have his new 70-300VR from xmas lying around so I grabbed it and hung out the window.

The trick for me is to find the right background. What’s the right background? It’s gotta be dark, have some hint of color that translates through the icecycle and gives a sense of place. So finding a good looking icecycle, the drip and the background are what I stalk out the windows.
