There I am destroying the pristine snow just to get a photo of my shoe

We've had so much snow this year. It's been beautiful but unfortunately hard to photograph because the temperatures have been sub zero, which makes my little cameras cranky. One day it warmed up to the 20's (fahrenheit) and while the snow was falling I donned my winter coat, grabbed my new Diana (courtesy of the very generous @clickiemcpete) and headed out to Lincoln Park to take some snow shots. Some of the photos have a smeared texture to them but that's just the snow falling on the lens creating snow filter of sorts. I kinda like the effect!

Ah . . . and I had this song in mind when I shot this album www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cNeXWpTVlo Gotta love some Hazy Shade of Winter!
