middle of a snow storm
as soon as it began snowing on this orb, everything in my life went on hold for a few days. i hiked up and down the frozen mountain in the dark and stayed all day to record the evolution of the storm. cold. beautiful. made sure to pack a hot cup of coffee and hand warmers each morning. serious business considering my toe almost froze once. but sooooooooooooooo beautiful up on the side of a mountain inside the storm. thunderous silence! only other animal sounds i heard were the occasional hikers and a few crows that inhabited the surrounding forest.
to kill the suspense (kinda)… i destroyed this creation yesterday. tis gone. no more. finished. i’m free. but the total life after creation was 3 nights/days. started raining and then snowing the first night i left it. 3 days is the longest i’ve ever left one of these standing, for various reasons. this photo is from early on day 2 of the storm (Friday). this is the only time that day that the sun became barely visible through the clouds.
i have tons of photos of this creation evolving through the final 24 hours that i’ll post more or less in sequence. then a dramatic switch of scenery beginning in december. <3
