Snow Day!

Taken from my office window early this morning. When we get snow, photographers run for the desert just North of Phoenix to get photos of snow on cactus 🙂

Snow in the Preserve

More photos from Sunday’s snow appearance. We went out very early knowing it would melt quickly once the sun came up. Because we were trying to see all our favorite areas covered in snow, we moved quickly which meant shooting mostly handheld at a high ISO. Noise was easy to get rid of but the color balance still needs work. I’ll blame it on my monitor since it’s past time to calibrate 🙂


Totally unexpected but thoroughly enjoyed! Not much light but software helped. More images tomorrow.

Revised Forecast

Two days ago, NOAA forecast snow down to 2000ft. Yesterday afternoon it revised to 3000ft (we’re at 2500). I’m still holding out hope for a snow covered Saguaro but now I’ll need to drive a little north of here. So…here’s another shot from December 1998. (scanned from slide)

Ready? Set? SNOW!

I’m SO excited at the prospect of snow tomorrow night! The last time we had a couple of inches (in our area) that stayed long enough to photograph was in December 1998 which is when this image was taken. (scanned from slide) If we’re lucky enough to get this much again, I’m going to try to duplicate this image. The bad news is that all the plants that have spring up in the warmth of the past month are going to get knocked back down 🙁
