A December afternoon snow squall rolls across Wabigoon Lake, obliterating the view of the shoreline on the south side. The sun still managed to burn a hole through the clouds, making its presence felt.

    Its amazing how bright the winters sun can be! Lovely shot Stan!! ;]

  • You’re right, Tracy. I was surprised how high a shutter speed I could use. Probably could have used a half stop, or so, higher yet.
    Thank ya, kindly ! :)

    Wonderful snowy capture, it’s snowing here in London too for the first time this year.

  • Thanks a lot, Don !
    Compared to an average winter, we hardly have any snow at all this year; only a couple of inches. I was hoping to get a foot or more before the cold weather hit.

    Excellent work Stan…

  • Thank you very much, Larry !
    Haven’t been around much, lately, and won’t be for a while yet. The family got me an photo course for Xmas so that will be my main focus over the next number of months. I’ll be peaking in, from time to time, but won’t be posting or commenting much.
    When I’m done, I’ll be back. :)
