Photo of the Week – February 5, 2015

Snow!  The long range forecast last fall called for a wet winter, but we’ve had very little snow so far.  This week, we finally got a couple good snow storms (and two days of cancelled school).  However, the high temperatures is rising into the 50’s (F) tomorrow and it will be warm all weekend, so the snow will be short-lived.

I took my camera for a short walk after each of the snows this week, and managed to get a few photos (mostly close-ups, of course).  Here are three of them:

Frost on prairie grasses.  Leadership Center Prairie.  Aurora, Nebraska.

    That ice on switchgrass photo is fantastic.

    Cool blue of the snow contrast with the warm beige of the little aster; I like the implied movement too, the way the petals are radiating out and the streak of light on the snow leads the eye out and away! Nice!
