February Snow

  • by

What a beautiful night last night.  The snowfall during the day had the sticky quality that you get when the weather combines light winds and temperatures around 32° F.  After dark I struck out to shoot a bridge over the Menomonee River in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  I had remembered the bridge being unique, but I had forgotten just how wonderful the stone structures were.  The cable supports held just enough snow to create visual interest.  What I didn’t expect at all was the location of a single snow coated tree in ideal framing from the stone arches.

I was interested to see what this scene looked like from the other end of the bridge.  I’m glad I looked.  The street light illuminating the bridge and path created an almost cinematic look to the area.
