White But Not Snow

Our son just sent a photo taken after he cleared a foot of snow from our driveway. There was a lot of white in that one, but you can bet most everything you own that with the cold temps I wouldn’t be out taking photos of that kind of white. I had dreams of taking lots of snow photos while I was north for 5 weeks. Nature cooperated with many snowy days but I had forgotten that snow doesn’t come in 70 degree weather. I’ll leave that pleasure to all of you younger folks in the northern half of the US and will look forward to seeing them.

In the meantime, here is a white that I didn’t have to freeze my nose and fingers to take. I consider it my duty to post photos of sunshine for all my friends who have to endure the grey skies in Michigan and the Northwest coastal areas.
