Images of Late Autumn Snow

Before I left for school today I tried to catch a photo or two since it is often too dark when I return home. We didn't get the big snow that was predicted last night, but there was enough to add beauty to the trees.
The covered basketball courts by my classroom waited in stark silence this morning for the hustle and bustle of middle school students as they began to arrive at school. They often shoot a few hoops not minding the below freezing temperatures or the blanket of snow.A group of girls just walked around quietly at break time making distinct trails in the snow. When they headed in to get warm and begin class the footsteps remained intact. With the cold weather that is predicted the footprints may remain for a few more days.

  1. I love how the first substantial snowfall of the season muffles outdoor sounds. Perhaps that was how the world sounded years ago before interstates and airplanes and industries!!

  6. Thanks eveyone for the comments. I think snow can create that quiet, hushed atmosphere. With what was going on with my students this week, I think the quiet was appreciated.
