Official Snow Day

February 12, 2010

I guess I really wasn’t surprised when the district announced last night that all of the schools would be closed today due to inclimate weather. I woke up well before sunrise this morning and couldn’t wait for the sun to come up just enough to give me decent light to see what the additional snowfall overnight had brought. The yard which was a mess after yesterday’s snowball fights, snowman building and general horsing around was all fresh and new. In other areas snow like this wouldn’t be much to talk about but for Texas, this is substantial. Last night the single day’s snowfall record was broken and from what I understand I don’t believe we have ever seen this much. We are enjoying it while we can!!

Night Shots in the Snow

February 12, 2010

I took the opportunity to take advantage of the combination of the low cloud cover and the snow to get some good night shots. These were all taken around 10:30 PM last night with exposures from between 1 second to 7 seconds. Lots of fun!

Let it snow

February 11, 2010

According to local news D/FW International airport has received 9.5 inches of snow at 9pm. That’s blizzard weather by Dallas standards. These were taken this morning, about thirty minutes after the snow had started. I can’t wait to see what it is going to look like tomorrow morning!!

Lambo anyone?

We always run across something different when we’re off on photo shoots. Today was no exception. Of course whenever you’re in or around the Shops at Legacy in Plano you are bound to see something like this but when I’m there I usually don’t have a camera other than my cell phone with me. If my oldest son was there he would have been jumping up and down screaming at the sight of this little gem.

Clouds in McKinney

My daughter was amazed at the clouds over the city this afternoon. Being the budding photographer that she is she grabbed her camera and ran out to capture the moment.
