Looking at life through nano-coated lenses

I’m not a big fan of going out and taking pictures during the winter; it’s generally cold and I’d rather be skiing if I’m going to be out in the elements. But this has been a particularly cold and snowy winter, so if I want to take pictures I have to just bite the bullet, dress warmly and get out there. Here’s a sampling of winter photos; click on any image to see a larger version.

Snow-filled Lane, 2/26/2011

 

In early March we had an ice and snow storm. Usually the ice quickly melts after such a storm, especially one in March. But this time the temperature didn’t get much above freezing for a few days. Combined with the March sun, this led to a subtle thaw and refreeze cycle that led to some interesting effects.  Here’s a sampling…
