Winter Roundup

I must say it was sooo nice to get that one good snowfall back in December. I didn’t get to make an extended trip during the peak of it, but I did some local shooting. Here’s some highlights.

In mid February I was finally able to make a trip south. I had business in Boise and Twin Falls, so only had one good evening of photography and a few travel stops.
