Our first snow accumulation of the year came overnight. It’s mostly melted now. But when the dog had to go out about 2 this morning I grabbed the camera and snapped a couple of shots before there were a bunch of tracks to muddle the view.

Zeus had to come see what’s going on

Zeus wasn’t too sure about walking in the snow at first, but once he gets used to it he usually loves playing in the snow.

Just snow and shadows

This was as close to the snow covered ground as I could get without laying down in it.

Here I was playing around with Gimp2 and UFRaw to see what I could get to bring out in color without really distorting things and also as a black & white photo.
