After the recent blizzard started Robert ( ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', '/') + 1) . ' bear_music ) really, really wanted to go out and shoot for this challenge. I didn't, but agreed to go as he is not driving at the moment, but didn't bother with my camera. We went to our closest haunt, Red River beach, where the snow was blowing horizontally. For the route home I chose one of my favorite side roads, which for a while runs alongside a large area of wetlands. As Robert tells it, I slammed on the brakes, grabbed his camera, leaned over him, and shot this through the side window. I say he's exaggerating. I know he opened the window for me first!

Thanks for the comments and favs.

Beautiful shot, Penny. Since he's a captive copilot, why don't you head up here?

I'm with you--I don't go out in blizzards or even when it's wet and cold! But it all turned out great (and great story). Congratulations!
