Apologies for being the straightchuter.com slacktart over the last few days.  We have been fighting off a neighbor who is trying to slip a duplex in next door and I’ve had a bunch of emergency design work to do.  I hate it when these things get in the way of skiing related activities.

But, winter is on its way and the Wasatch had a nice little storm the other day to let us know it is coming soon.

A little Wasatch Mountain stormlette, Oct 12 2008.

As a little photographic aside, I’ve found that using a flash to shoot snowstorms helps pump up the visual snow volume as it captures the snowflakes in the immediate foreground and leaves a bit of streaking. Without a flash, all you see are a few individual flakes.

    Hi Andrew-
    Thanks for the photo hint – I never thought turning the flash on to really show snowfall.
    Do you have a set of plans for that cabin – or can you point me in the direction for them? That looks like the perfect size for a project I have in mind.
    Chris
