As I wrote before, even with a digital camera, with its auto focus and no worries about running out of film, I manage to miss some great opportunities to take a good shot. Well, add to the list of digital advantages that I forget about until it is too late - motion pictures.
A few weeks ago, we had a surprise snow storm with no wind. That is unheard of where we live. There is always wind. In our old house, we even had wind in the house when the TV stations said there would be no wind that day. So, snow with no wind was a story in itself. But this snow also had larger than usual flakes. So when you looked out the front window in our office, it looked like a snow globe. The snow fell straight down very slowly and you could see the individual flakes. It was beautiful. I'd never seen anything like it - and probably never will see anything like it in the future.
