Waking up to the first snow of the season is always a special moment. Looking out of the window and seeing the whole world in white stirs up a mixture of emotions. There is the excitement of the child that wants to go out and play; there is also a sense of dreadfulness - knowing that another long winter lays ahead. But for now I am enjoying it, giving me an opportunity for the first snow pictures of the season. Again, all images are taken with my 50mm lens.
