Snow Capped II


The Lenten Rose post yesterday was a cruel joke I fear, because today, we're right back to the snow photos.

As many of you know, I am presently teaching a photography class. I pleased to be featuring some of my talented students' work right here. Today, Tom Cronier's grand view of the historic Alabama Theatre in the midst of last week's snowstorm. Tom is an terrific volunteer at the Alabama, so he didn't mind a bit braving the cold for this shot! ( He also thought it would earn him some brownie points with the teacher.......it did! )

You're teaching a ladyshutterbug class? Sprinkle some tips around here. At least one dog reader could use them.

That's a nice snow cover tree. You're area is great for snow pics.

Oh....more snow...and way down there! What are we in for now? Our snow has melted, but...

Good for you and your photography class!

My word verification is 'purti' and mighty 'purti' are these photos.

I believe next year I'm gonna shoot that groundhog. I'm ready for spring. Great shots, yours and Tom's.

Picture post card perfect - both shots!

«Louis» will e-mail you both a hot chocolat à l'ancienne to ward off the chill....

Excellent shot Tom! I like the perspective.

Just for the record, these photos are from last week's snow. Thankfully we've not had more. I just have a stash and you're going to have to look at them all! :)

Oh, I wish I were in your class; then I say things like image and aperture.

Wow, you can see the wind in this last picture.

Nice to have talented help, V. I like the theater photo very much.

ACK! Just when you think its safe to put away the boots and snow shovel ... we're due more wet white stuff Monday into Tuesday .. oh joy

Daryl said...

Tom's photo is perfection .. bare trees, snow and a slightly out of focus sign .. works for me!

Maya said...

Both of these shots are amazing! What makes them even more so is that you both managed to capture the snow falling too. Wow.

Jacob said...

Tom did well! You taught him well. I always like teachers who award brownie points!

Petrea said...

Nice work, the both of you.

Mme la Vache (being from China originally) loves the lanterns in the masthead photo!
