Green Leaves and Snow

Valley City, ND (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: We had 7 1/2 inches of snow last night, which has to set an all-time record for mid-October. The leaves were stripped from the trees before they had a chance to turn color. This morning, this tree was ON my car! Now it has risen a little, but left many of its leaves behind.

Thanks! I wish I could have gotten more color into the leaves, but it was a grey day, and the frost had turned the leaves dark. That snow lasted four days before it melted, and I've never seen snow stay on the ground at all in October. It was like having the spring thaw all over again.

We are still having unseasonable weather; today it is pouring rain, which may turn to snow tomorrow. Next spring may break our flood record that was set this spring, and the Army Corps of Engineers may wish they had left the dikes in place!

About sdianas


I am primarily a musician (full-time arranger and occasional performer), but also love to take photos! How I would love to be able to capture details of trees, etc., against a sunset or in other dark conditions! I have a Canon A510 and a Canon S40, but neither of them can do it, perhaps because there are settings I am unaware of. If anyone can advise me how to get this effect, which I see often in Wunderground photos, I would be very grateful.
