First Snow

Filed under: Autumn,Landscapes,Monadnock Region — Tags: , , — Frank @ 1:00 PM

All of a sudden it is seemingly winter!

The foliage is definitely past peak and Saturday night we got about an inch of snow. Sunday dawned cold (the high for the day was 39 oF) and sunny. The sun made quick work of most of the snow. By the time we (Joan, her friend Sally, and I) headed out to hike the Bailey Brook loop in the early afternoon it was mostly gone.

However, during the couple of hours we were out, the clouds moved in and we experienced three or four periods of snow showers and flurries. The combination of colorful leaves on the ground and traces of fresh snow made for some interesting photography.

  1. Very interesting captures of the first DUSTING! #7 is my favorite of this mix.

    Hopefully our first dusting is months away!!

  2. Hi Frank…I like all these…especially for the memories it evokes of the first wintry walk of the year with the woods still awash in fall color! my favorite is the shelf fungus…the angle of your photo creates a nice rhythm with the relationship of the three ‘shelves’…and there seems to be an elfin figure perched on the top ‘shelf’ which I think enlivens it. I also especially like the photos that show the ‘pellet’ texture of the snow against the rocks and fallen leaves. sally
