Trees During Snowy Weather for @parul2411’s #ThursdayTreeLove

As I mentioned in my last Thursday Tree Love post, my camera (or should I say, my camera’s battery) has been a bit cranky as of late. And the light bit of snow that starting falling last night has been steadily drifting down all day, which given the fact I don’t have one of those fancy hoods for my lens, means that getting pictures of trees during snowy weather would be a bit challenging.

Good excuses for dipping into my archive of unpublished pictures, right?

Yeah, but also given that it’s not terrible cold out today (hovering around freezing, but without the nasty wind from earlier this week makes it feel downright balmy), and everything looks so pretty with the light fluffy stuff drifting down, I decided to give it a go. And I was rewarded with a couple dozen of shots before my Nikon died, thirteen of which I thought were post worthy.

After I charged my camera for a few, I decided to take a couple of short videos out my window so you can get a sense of how much it was snowing at the time, then I turned them into a gifs. I figured since there’s no audio, gifs would be a lazier better way of sharing instead of videos that are only ten & eleven seconds long. 😝

Speaking of, I always find it interesting that when I take pictures while snow is falling (at least with my current camera) that the flakes don’t typically show up. Which leads me to a question for my photography friends – do you find the same thing happens, or is your camera capable of capturing snow/rain while it’s falling? I ask because my husband pointed out that instead of buying a new battery, we might be able to afford a new Nikon if our car repairs aren’t as bad as we’re expecting. On the off chance that happens, I’m pondering the possibility, but if I do, I want to make sure I can up my photog game at least a little, so I’m trying to come up with a list of things I’d like to be able to do.

At any rate (and before I forget) – thanks, as always, to Parul for hosting this awesome blog hop every couple of weeks. If you want to join in the Tree love blog hop fun, it’s really easy – here’s the description from her latest post today, called #ThursdayTreeLove – 102

Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on this blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on February 11, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell me where did you spot the tree and link it back to this post.

If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. Please make sure that your post’s link is showing up on this latest edition. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.

Okay, last last thing, these were taken in my Durham, NH yard earlier today, using my my Nikon affixed to my tripod and cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey.

Trees During Snowy Weather, January 28th, 2021


Trees During Snowy Weather
1. A somewhat familiar view to Thursday Tree Love friends – this is the path behind our house, with one of the shagbark trees on the left.

2. This is a little bit further around the right of our house, looking towards another part of the conservation woods that abut this property.

3. Snowy trees and snow covered boulders.

4. The snowy view above – managed to quickly take this shot without getting any snow on my lens…

5. … then somehow after taking this shot of that same bit of woods behind our house, I managed to get a handful of wet flakes on my lens.

6. … which resulted in two different shots of the snow on this shagbark tree – one that had big blurry splots and this one (after I quickly cleaned my lens with my sleeve, while hearing my late father in my head, scolding me for not using my lens cloth instead…lol).

7. Snowy branches and bark.

8. Had I thought of it, I would’ve taken a video of this shot to show how much snow was falling, to contrast with how calm this shot looks. You can kind of see some blurry flakes if you zoom in a bit on that dark pine trunk on the left, but it doesn’t show how snow globe-ish this looked in real life.

9. I took a couple of macro shots too – this one of a snowy leaf….

10. … and this of the snow piling up on a branch.

11. Another familiar view to my tree loving friends, this was one of the five areas I took pictures of for my fall foliage comparison shots…

12. …as well as this one, of the trees next to our driveway.

13. And my final shot before my camera battery decided it was, “exhausted” was another of the five foliage views. I’m sort of toying with the idea of eventually doing another mega post, but this time with the five different locations in my yard at various times of the year. We’ll see how it goes.
