2011 - Day 314. Nov. 10, 2011.
It's quite understandable that the Inuit have many words for 'snow'. Today we experienced snow showers, not our regular snowfall that blankets everything in sight, but isolated pockets of snow that come in quick bursts.
This is not the shot I intended to take, but I'm posting it as a 'note to self' to stop overthinking things. When I first saw the Cumuliform cloud that was dumping snow, (see my note), it was close and appeared to be massive. I should have just pulled over to the side of the road and taken the shot. No, I decided I'd get a better view from the top of the escarpment. By the time I raced up there, parked my vehicle, put on my polarizing filter, and set up my tripod, the cloud was on the other side of the bay, over Wasaga Beach. My new mantra...just take the shot...just take the shot...just take the shot...
