I didn't practice today. I went snowshoeing with my dog instead, since it finally got above zero.

I think it was worth it.

Is the bottom photo what the light is like mid-day this time of year?

It's supposed to be warmer this winter(for the most part) in the lower 48......but colder than usual in Alaska. It was -65ยบ in Fairbanks the other day! Buurrrrrrrr!!!!!

It was snowing, and about 3:30 or 4:00 pm. Not very bright yesterday, but clear days are brighter. I really enjoyed the greyness of it. That photo is a little underexposed to get rid of some of the flat light. I have another slightly brighter one.

Randy, we had our third coldest January ever, with an average temperature of -3F. Fairbanks set a record for the coldest.

I don't have any idea what our average temp. has been this winter in Tn. but I do know that it has been from 10 to 25 degrees warmer than the norm. I can't stand cold and I empathize with you. You live in a very beautiful place but it seems there's always got to be thorns(cold) if there are roses. I actually love snow as long as it's in a picture!:)

I just want to say that your dog is fantastic! I also chose the snow over violin today and I really wish I had had a dog for company.
