Wordy Wednesday #184 “Having a Snow Day”


Last week I made some interesting comparisons about the number of sunny days in Miami compared to the Denver area. It turns out there wasn’t much difference but I also predicted snow was coming and although I’m not a meteorologist, we had snow that night. By comparison, the Denver area gets 54 snow days a year, Miami get zero and the US average is 25 days.

Well, tonight we have snow expected, about three to six inches worth for the Denver area. Because Daisy Hill is at a higher altitude and south of Denver we will either get more snow than that or less—lots more or lots less.

So while the sun is shining brightly as I type this on November 10, with temperatures in the high fifties (F) I expect my back yard will look something like this before the day’s over. Shot with the unloved (but I liked it) Pentax MX-1 with its 28-112mm (equivalent lens) at 28mm and an exposure of 1/200 sec at f/2.8 and ISO 800. Shot as a DNG file and converted to monochrome using Silver Efex Pro.
