    Took these pictures at New Salem State Park during a mild snow storm in Illinois. It's hard to concentrate on the photo when the wind and snow are in your face. But overall this was a storm chasers dream. Found a wood shed and took up shelter for a while. Made some adjustments on the camera. Tried Black & White photography for the first time . An awesome experience!

    Since lemons are yellow, for a second there I thought you were going to say, "Snow? Make yellow snow."

    Nice captures - #1 really shows the blowing wind.

    Thank you Jeff. That was my first time to do a b&w photoshoot. Maybe next time I will use a diffuser filter in the b&w. That might give it a older and dreamy appearance.

    I like them both and totally agree, its complicated to concentrate when the wet weather with wind hitting your face and even worse if you wear eye glasses, visibility become's almost impossible in seconds.
