snow play

I didn't take many pictures out in the snow today. It was glaringly bright and sunny and I don't have a clue how to get pictures to turn out in snow like that. Yuck. Then it got later in the afternoon and the shadows were messing with me too. Eventually I gave up and just grabbed the video camera instead.
Here are a few of the pics I did take... these first few are blah, but the last ones are fun!


Sawyer liked that the snow made him tall enough to sit on the swing...












Savannah was buried in a snow cave.
Later on, the snow cave was transformed into a "hill" for a sled launch...











Sawyer thinks the "hill" needs a little more work...




















here's a trip down the "hill"


















and another view...

Oh how fun! We'll have to take P out and do a snow hill this weekend. I hate going outside... brrrr! But I think he'd have a lot of fun. I guess we'll need a sled too.... LOL!

Love the pics! I am lousy at snow pics too... I hate trying to compensate for the bright glaring snow. Clueless, I am.

I am shocked that there are not 20 neighborhood kids lined up for a turn. That thing looks awesome!

We headed up to the school yesterday and had some fun. Unfortunately we have some sick kids on our hands today. Sophie is coughing and has a runny nose. Sammy is crashed out in bed and that is rare for our boy. I'm hoping we can get the girls out there later. Looks like they are having fun. Sophie was begging to get out there earlier when she saw Savannah.

Great photos, Heather! I don't know if the same trick works with the digital SLRs, but we were taught in my college photography course to increase the f stop by 1 1/2 stops for snow so the snow won't look gray and your photos won't be dark. The aperture wants to close up with the brightness but you want to trick it the opposite way by opening it up 1 1/2stops instead of what the camera says it should be. Let me know how it works for you -- if the photos turn out better or not. It is the rule for coast/sand photos also, when it is bright out. Good luck!
Love, Mom/Gramma Debbie
