Photo Monday – Snow Day

I woke up to falling snow on Saturday morning. I thought I’d get up early and go take pictures but things happened and I was only able to leave the apartment around 9:30. I headed straight to Prospect Park with the lens that was on my camera (wide angle zoom). Turns out the macro might have worked better to catch the wildlife that was out in full force. I heard so many different birds and saw what I think was a tufted titmouse. It was like a small grey blue jay. Definitely not a female cardinal. Smaller and not a hint of reddishness anywhere. I tried to get a picture but the wide angle did not help.

Anyhow. By the time I got to Prospect Park, people were out on full force. See, the thing with snow here is that it doesn’t last. We’ll get a good snowfall but then it gets warm and it melts away in a day or two. Once it’s all gone, the weather goes cold so you’re freezing but it’s just grey and blech. And this was the first good snowfall of the year. People know it might be the only one so they go out and the park is the best place to go. Not a single hill is without children sledding. Dogs running excitedly. Snowpeople making by children and adults alike. It’s an event.

I hadn’t originally planned on it but I made my way toward the boathouse. There were a few other photographers there who had better lenses to capture the water fowl. One swan let me get close enough. I’d creep closer each time it dived for food.

The other swan had something against the geese and kept chasing them away. Never thought I’d feel pity for geese…

At that point, I was close to LeFrak Center where the girls skate so I went there to meet up with them.

And yes. Always one of the lampposts. When it snows, they make me feel like I’m in Narnia…
