It is snowing in Portland! Even as I type this the snow is coming down and it is sticking to the ground. I love how bright the world is, even at night, when there is snow on the ground. The dogs love it, Hubert dances around me for blocks attacking the snow. It was so pretty that I grabbed my camera and went to Laurelhurst Park to take a few pictures. I am sure that it will still be there in the morning but it will probably melt quickly and I didn't want to miss my opportunity.
Probably my favorite photo from my brief outing is the one below. I was getting ready to leave and I noticed a Japanese maple lit by a nearby light so I got down low and took a picture of the branches covered in snow. I like how the reflection off the snow serves to highlight the structure of the tree.
I hope it snows for days and it lasts for weeks!
