Winter has Arrived.... finally!

For pretty much the first time this winter, it actually feels like winter.  As I headed out the door to walk to the post office, I grabbed my camera.  All the trees are covered in spikey frost.  They look so pretty.  However, I did not like the way that they photographed.  Instead, I decided to spin my camera while shooting the frosty trees at a slowish shutter speed.  What I ended up with was a meaningless vortex.  It amused me, so here it is.  I do think with a bit of tweeking and maybe a slightly wider aperture, one could make a pretty cool portrait using this technique. 

When we got back to the  house, thoroughly chilled, Leo the Terrible was waiting in the window for us.
