Stilly River Sage BS: winter storm thread (2020-2021) (32) RE: BS: winter storm thread (2020-2021) 31 Dec 20

In North Texas we don't get snow very often and when we do it's quite remarkable but short-lived. I put on boots and winter climbing gear and go out with my camera. I've had neighbors flag me down and ask if I can take photos so they can send them to the family in Guatemala. I enjoy getting photos of the dogs racing around, when it's fresh and deep they're like a bunch of little kids. The trick is to set the camera for really fast shots in the bright light and pan with the dog so you get some stop action, like the famous photos of race horses running on the track. Dogs running in the snow are much more compelling images.

This wintery weather we're getting this week and into next week will be a road hazard, and overnight there will be some freezing, but nothing so beautiful as a snowy landscape is due. If there is a "silver thaw," as we in Washington State used to call the ice-coated branches after a sleet storm, that's another occasion to bundle up and head out with the camera.
