2012, Day 18 - Snow day

I woke up this morning with proof that my decision to take pictures of the snow last night was the right one.  Overnight the temperature rose steadily and by this morning most of the city was covered in slush.  Sadly our snow didn't last long but fortunately I went out and took this picture last night at Laurelhurst Park.

There were a lot of people in the park, many with their dogs, and because of their furry companions their ghosting movement through the frame looked jerky so I have thus far opted not to use those shots.  I like this one because it conveys the tranquility while retaining some urban elements like lamp posts and picnic benches.  Although I didn't get the week of snow I wanted I am glad we got what we did.
