How lawn furniture hibernates. This will be the last of the 4x5 large format pinhole shots featuring snow for a while. We are supposed to get one more really good snow storm on Wednesday into Thursday and then the forecast around here is calling for temperatures in the upper 30s to 50s on some days so hopefully the snow will all melt and I can get on to some more interesting landscapes with the regular 4x5 camera. Have I mentioned how much I hate snow ? I probably have.
