Snow & Frustration

A tip of a branch I am sure when you read this title and if you have live in an area where you have gotten snow lately you think I am going to talk about how frustrating it is dealing with the snow. Driving in it, shoveling it, scrapping windows,salted roads, dirty cars etc.. I am afraid you would be wrong. Although I have to deal with those frustrations like everyone else when it snows, my frustration comes from the fact that it seems to snow on days that I have other commitments and appointments that prevent me  from spending  hours photographing the beauty just outside my door.

Today is such a day. It snowed here in Littleton, Colorado about 8 inches and everything looks white and soft and beautiful. But I have appointments and things I must do and I am so frustrated because it has happened on a day when I am booked with work that can not be rescheduled.  Today is such an opportunity sent by nature and  for someone like me who just loves snow.

It is my hope that it will snow all day and maybe late this afternoon I can get out and explore and create the beauty  of this wonderful gift from nature.

But until then I just will get ready for my appointments and feel the frustration.

Here are some previous photographs I have taken on a snow day.
