A Cold Afternoon

I stopped short before stepping out onto the front porch this afternoon, as I glanced at the cement inches away from me. There was a fine powdering of snow that had crept up to the door. This will be my first picture, I thought. 

Upon walking out onto the porch, I became overwhelmed with the beauty of the white crystals that were covering our yard, and I wanted to snap away at everything I could see. I started with the old green benches on our front porch.

And then I progressed towards the railing.
 I love the bokeh in each of these photos. Is it still called bokeh when it's not circles? Or is bokeh just...blurriness? :P

Then I proceeded to the front yard where I tried to get a picture of the snowflakes as they raced to beat each other to the ground.

And then a self-portrait before I headed to the back yard.

I finally made it to the backyard, and look who's sitting there to greet me!

I can't believe she'll be five in June!

 No flash ^^
Manual with white balance set as either Daylight or Auto (I tried both, and they looked the same) ^^

Sledding down the steps? Sounds good. 

Then I went inside because my fingers were frozen into place holding the camera and clicking the shutter release. 

The End
