Winter never goes out easily here in Colorado. Our early Spring storms usually bring wet, heavy snow that causes a number of problems. Luckily our last one did not work out that way. We did get about 6″ of snow on the grass, but the flakes were big and fluffy, lending themselves to a little macro work. I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do. In fact, I am starting to build a decent collection of snowflake images now.
After 403 consecutive days of taking a picture every day, the inevitable finally happened. There is no photo on my camera for yesterday. Part of me is relieved. Part of me is lost. Part of me wants to stop for a while. So really, I just don’t know what to do.
I have been proud of the fact that for each of my “photo-a-day” series, I was actually shooting a new photo every day. I might shoot for a week (or 3) and then upload a bunch in a short time frame, but at least the images were shot. This definitely became more challenging when I switched (on January 1) from doing an iPhone photo a day to doing a shot every day with my Olympus dSLR, as a Prime Lens Photo-A-Day. The dSLR is much larger to lug around for starters. But in the last few days, I feel like I have been shooting just to shoot, and the quality of the pics reflects that. I think it is time for a quick break and then a change of course. Maybe for this year it should be a photo a week. That might be more manageable and help me shoot meaningful images again. I’ll take this weekend and think on it some.
Photographers – have you ever run into this? Let me know how you dealt with it.

Prime A Day 32/365 - Beauty is a very subjective subject. Some people would look at this photo and get tense, worried they might have to drive in it. Others would get excited about the opportunities it affords. Still others will look closely at the faint details that describe where this scene was shot.
For me, this is a beautiful image from a beautiful day. Others are welcome to disagree, but days like this are where I find my peace.
Do you see the detail that gives it away?
