Good morning everyone,
We were on the southern edge of this week’s snowstorm as it made it’s way across the U.S. this week. These photos are from Wednesday, February 26 at the local park a mile down the road from my home in Fishers, Indiana (adjacent city NE of Indianapolis). It’s Cumberland Park and the photos are from a Samsung Galaxy S8 mobile phone. The snow was heavy and wet, sticking to everything except the roads and sidewalks since the temps were right around freezing. It made for some lovely winter scenes today. These photos are all in color, although our typical midwestern grayscale does make it seem otherwise.
Very pretty. What is the mechanical object in the 6th photo?
@eclare: Looks like a Frisbee golf station.
Beautiful trees, especially the last one.
I don’t know that we had any snow total this year in Philadelphia PA. It’s to be 70 degrees today. The May flowering tulips are up and have buds.
When snow is heavy and wet, it creates quite the winter wonderland. Thank you for the pics.
Yes, Chris is correct, it is a disc golf (Frisbee) golf hole. The 9 hole course is mostly along the creek, so kind of problemmatic for inaccurate throws. I played it once and lost a vintage (had it since we played in college) frisbee over a privacy fence.
The wide open spaces are youth soccer fields.
Great pictures. Looks so peaceful.
Lovely pictures. We got very little snow in NYC this year, and spending Christmas in Canada made me realize that I actually miss it.
The only nice thing about winter. Pretty pictures.
Had various film photography folks recommend plain old black & white film for snow scenes since HEy B&W! They also pointed out that the B&W was actually more detailed than color would be capabble of
