God thundereth marvelously with his voice; great things doth He, which we cannot comprehend..For He saith to the snow, be thou on the earth...
Job 37:5-6

My plan was to pick up the snow and show it to the camera..but I wasn't quick enough as it was icy underfoot. Consequently the camera caught me about to pick up the snow...I decided to post it anyway as it is not posed. It snowed 3 inches last night and it was still snowing as I did this self portrait. The tripod and camera were in the porch.

    Two more to go Andrea!!! I love that this is not planned. A terrific capture. I don't now how you go out and brave that weather everyday. Your coat is the perfect touch of color.

    Unplanned is often the best, although in your case, every day seems to bring the best!

    I am going to have to take your word for it, Andrea. I went to "all fours" in the snow yesterday, but it was to cushion my fall! (No discernible damage, other than to pride) And now there are just two . . . Have you put the bubbly on ice?

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...Sometimes unplanned is the best in self portraits as it gives it more of a realistic approach..I am glad you didn't get hurt in your fall, Richard...Have I put the 'bubbly' on ice?, but I may put salt on it:)) Yes, just two more days left of my self portraits.

    I agree with the comments above. Sometimes those unplanned shots turn out to be the best! Your red jacket and gloves against the white snow look terrific! I can't believe that you're almost done with your SP series!

    That's usually what happens to my self portrait attempts, except that sometimes I'm not even in the picture yet. This is actually pretty cool!
