First snow

First sense of winter.

Yesterday, the first flakes of snow for this winter fell.  We’ve had a very mild and long summer, and autumn this year, so I guess nature felt like it was time to be ahead of itself, and bring some snow.

After spending parts of the day catching up on a show that SaSa tipped me about, which my tweet sums it up fairly well:

AREKUsnow(it’s a good show, I promise)

I felt like heading outside, to try to get some photos. It was however more windy than I first thought, with pretty obstructed viewing distances.

This was the only thing I got that was near decent:

Today was mostly spent with shoveling snow and changing to winter tires, so once that was done, the sun was already on its way down the horizon. I decided to head out once more, if only for a short while.

Below is a picture I took with a longer exposure, that’s how I made the water look like it does.
Since my tripod still is broken, I had to improvise and build a small one out of snow, haha.

I guess today could be somewhat understandable, as the snow was heavy and might have felled on a wire or something, but I can’t help but to feel a bit annoyed over how “often” we seems to get blackouts these last couple of years, versus how it was before that.
Before it only happened when it was stormy (which was often once or twice a year, most often in January of February), now it even happened on clear days and in the middle of the summer.
I took the time to sit in the dark with my lantern and edit the photos you see above. It was quite cozy.

And to end this post, I bring you the braid that my sister just did:
