Out-Takes 2: Seattle Snow

No hiker in these out-takes, but it is from the same snow event (Christmas 2017). I have attached four captures from that shoot.  The first three were in the finals for the project I was working on and the fourth one was just a random shot that made a first pass and then got eliminated. But, heck I figured all out-takes are fair game…..

As we head into the final week and a half leading up to Christmas, I wanted to go with some more seasonal captures for the Holiday Season. What keeps pulling me into these shots is that it was one of those snows that produces large fluffy flakes that stick to all of the trees and plants. There usually isn’t any wind involved and a serenity takes over as the landscape quietly changes to the fluffy white look. Two particular times in my life come to mind anytime I have the priviledge to be in one of these snows. The first one that comes to mind was the first snow of the season during one of my college years in Iowa and walking across the college campus I was attending during one of these events. There was such a sense of peace and tranquility and the sheer beauty of it all. The other time that really resonates with me was coming out of a late Christmas Eve service when we lived in Denver. The snow had been falling during the service and had changed the look of everything. Again, talk about peace on earth….it was so beautiful and so quiet…true serenity!!

    Beautiful shot Kirt! Perfect photos for Christmas! I agree with you about the snow here in Denver. The Rockies bring that nice fluffy powder and it so peaceful to be in it. The resorts call it “white gold.” 🙂 God bless!

    AS much as I dislike snow and cold, it sure makes a fabulous photo or painting. These are all wonderful and would make perfect Christmas cards. Wishing you and your family the best of the season. xo

      Thank you so much Darlene!!! I so remember the years in Denver having to get up early early to shovel snow off a long driveway and fighting it on the commute into downtown on the freeway! I’ll stick to the occasional snow we might experience in Seattle on one of our trips up there from Southern California!!

    We all agree Kirt. These are beautiful images that capture the classic look of winter and what many of us associate with Christmas. I love those serene moments walking in fresh snow when the world is quiet and covered in a beautiful white blanket. Yummy!

    Oh, I love those snows that stick to everything. Your photos are super. We’ve had a couple of snows like that this year in New Hampshire and it’s such a photo opportunity.

    Makes me feel like you are at the back door! There is nothing like snow to add that magical beauty to nature. Your captures certainly portray that peaceful feeling. Best wishes over the holidays Kirt and all the best to you and your family.

    Beautiful seasonal captures Kirt! I love b&w imageries. Your artistry takes great skill. I love too your inclusion of color in the last image, color with b&w is an excellent contrasting. You have left out no details. May God Bless you and your family always and with the opening of this new year! Cheers!💕❤️
