In Seattle, everything stops when it snows; even if its just an inch of snow. Schools close, life stops, people stay in. Not me though. Warm clothes, snow tires, and AWD (and a bit of caution I suppose). I had tried to go to a hardware store to pick up some wood and supplies, but even they were closed. I think Seattle should do better in snow.
I took these pictures at the Green Lake park some very snowpocalyptic night a few weeks ago. The pictures didn't turn out as sharp as I had hoped, but being that it was raining at that point, it is acceptable. Silly me without gloves! Things had to happen quick (wider aperture). I did use a long exposure on the first photo while I was able to hold out on the coldness.
People were cross country skiing around Green Lake and generally having a good night. With all the city lights on and the snow, it made for very interesting lighting. It was as if the entire ground had turned into a white reflector; it was very bright out. This is very different from the dark and gloomy winter rain that Seattle has.
