photoblog image Avalanche

Avalanche

I also had a goal to capture the snow "pouring" off

of the trees.  It would happen so fast, I practically

walked around with the camera to my face, at the ready...

 

 

Continuing a series of images from a snowy walk through the woods on January 9th.  Flagstaff had gotten nearly three feet of snow the previous week, and then the sun shone gloriously on Saturday morning. There is as an extensive trail system around and through Flagstaff, and I'm blessed to live about 20 paces from the Sinclair Wash section of it.  My walk takes me through the forest, along a small wash that is the tributary to the Rio de Flag, next to the cattails of the Rio Marsh area, and the water management pond.  (I apologize that many of you may have already seen some of these on Facebook...)

You were in the right place at the right time Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Right place for sure... but the timing I'm not so sure about! It seemed I would hear the snow thudding to the ground behind me and turn around just too late every time - until this one! smile
You nailed this one perfectly E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Bill! It took several tries!
I thought at first that it was a snow geyser Elizabeth, now that would be a first.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well that would be cool!! Being from Wyoming- -geysers are something impressive indeed! smile
Sounds like a perfect day to me. What a great capture!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh you'd have loved it, Mary! Thank you!

I like your patience and determination to get this shot. Good share too.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Jacquelyn Ann! It was such a fun walk!
you captured this one falling straight down like a water fall Elizabeth... here they usually fall sideways because of the strong winds...
timing is everything....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I loved watching it do that! It was a pretty still day, just the occasional breeze... Thank you!
