There are a few stands of snow-covered spruce in Conner’s Bog I have had my eye on for over a week. Each morning I have hoped that the sun would come out in the morning and give me the light I wanted, but each day I have been disappointed … until today. I saw the stars out last night and hoped that the forecast would hold true for clear and cold in the morning. Up early, I saw that the skies were still clear, so I grabbed the gear I have had at the ready for the last several days and, along with Michelle, headed out to Conner’s Bog to be set up for the first light. It was certainly as cold as it looks, but, with proper layers, head gear and snow shoes, I was set to go out and spend some time among the trees.

I think I will head out to Lake Hood and do some photographing later this afternoon. If the skies remain clear, it will be a good evening for shooting the downtown skyline. Then, off to Town Square Park to photograph the ice sculptures, which are supposed to be completed today.
