I got a photo of falling snow! I tried several times before, but the snowflakes themselves never appeared in the picture. It was easy to tell that there was a snowstorm, but I really wanted to capture the snow in the sky. I began to think it was an impossible task. The camera just didn't seem to be able to see it right.
This time I got it. This was one of the last pictures I took when I was in my uh, desperate flight from the Woodland Hills park during a snowstorm. This was at the last big turn before the home stretch out of the hiking trail. It was just far in enough for some people to need a rest. You can just see a bench in the leftmost edge of the picture.
Those blurry white spots are the snow. If you look closely, you can see that they are at all different distances from me. It was light reflected off of the snowflakes that made them so blurry. I don't remember if I had the flash on or off, so I guess I'll have to find out again at another time.
Next time maybe I'll be able to get an even better photo like this. Hopefully it will be in a better, more controlled situation. Still, I consider this a good accomplishment, because I wanted it so bad. I wanted to know how to do it. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm proud of myself. Of course, it was also a lot of luck too, but I got it. Really, I was just relieved to be out of that little bit of danger right then.
After the last couple of posts showing some dangerous and scary situations, I really wanted to show something positive about my adventure that day. It really was a fun time. I'm also happy to share this picture with everyone. I hope it gives just a little bit of happiness to others. I know there are other photos of falling snow out there, but I didn't take them. Sometimes these are the things that make this all worthwhile.
I'll be back tomorrow.
