If you want to photograph snow in this town, it’s best to set the bar low for snow depth. My bar is set at 1” for a snow photo shoot, particularly after the paltry amount of snow we received last winter.
The clipper storm system that arrived on Wednesday night dropped about an inch of snow across much of the immediate Washington area, enough to prompt me to make a quick photo trip out to Great Falls to shoot snow.
When I arrived at Great Falls on the Virginia side of the Potomac River, light snow was falling, the temperature was in the upper teens, and blue sky was visible on the western horizon. Within 30 minutes, the sky cleared and the early morning sun illuminated the snow-coated landscape around Great Falls.
Below are a few photos from the trip and an on-line photo gallery can be viewed here.
