Shot Of The Day

One of the things non-photographers don't understand is why we just pull over to the side of the road to take a picture or show up late for an appointment because the light was really great. This is 100th of a second of something that lasted about 10 minutes after the first snow this fall. After I shot this the wind picked up and it was gone. It's not technically perfect. It was nearly dark out and I was trying to balance the flash with the natural light before the snow blew off or melted. If you don't take the shot and it goes away you can never get it back.
