Springtime Surprise

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 April 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A mid-April surprise that caught many off-guard as snow fell on April 15, 2018. Thankfully, the paved surfaces were warm enough that plowing was not necessary. Snow still exists, but hopefully will disappear by week's end.

Photo captured April 16, 2018.

NIKON D7000 1/125 second F/5.6 ISO 280 80 mm

It is like in Finland. Sometimes the snowfall can surprise you in the middle of summer.

A beautiful scene. I keep wondering when this winter will end! We didn't get any snow, but a lot of rain and wind and now it is in the low 40's again.
