Snow blowing

November 23rd, 2010 Permalink

This morning I was grumbling about my working conditions of having to go out in the bitter cold to find a snow feature photo. But seeing these two guys snow blowing bridge sidewalks made me rethink my plight. They were clearing the sidewalks in front of Spokane City Hall when I spotted them. Visually boring and not an interesting enough photo was my first thought. I soon realized the men were going to turn the corner and head over the Monroe Street Bridge. I chased after them. Most of the snow blew right back at them, which made for a better snap. Having the sun peek through the clouds was the icing. Nikon D700/ Nikkor 17-35 mm 2.8 lens
