First Snow

A couple weeks ago, a little snow fell on the hills just south of where I live, so I took a drive one late afternoon, trying to catch some of it, before it all melted. As usual, by best winter images are made at dusk, when the blue sky light reflects off the snow on the ground and contrasts with …
