    Some from the aftermath of the midwest snowstorm

    Treked out into a local park to get some shots of the blizzard we got the last couple of days. Was gloomy and overcast when I got there then as I was finishing my hike the sun decided to peak out.

    #1 By the entrance to the park - first thing I seen when I turned in



    #2 Same trees as above - walked up the road a bit



    #3 Entrance to the golf course



    #4 Edge of the 17th hole



    #5-6-7 playground fun







    #8 back to the beginning

    A very nice series Ben. I think #1 is my favorite, but I like them all.

    You nailed it with #8. That's a beautiful photo.
    It's not blurry. It's bokeh.

    Re: Some from the aftermath of the midwest snowstorm

    Thanks for the replies - I agree with JETA about #8 but I also like #4. Really made a difference when the sun came out at the end. When I went into the playground the snow was up over my knees. Was able to follow someone else that trudged back there first, but was still rough getting back there. It was a great day to go out and capture some of the results from the storm, upper 20's and no wind.
