SKOL and the Snow | Minnesota Nature Photography

This past Sunday was an exciting one in Minnesota. Our beloved Minnesota Vikings moved on to the NFC Championship game this week against the Philadelphia Eagles. If you’re not a Vikings fan, you just don’t get it. And that’s ok!  No, it wasn’t the Super Bowl, it wasn’t even a championship game. However, if you’ve been a Vikings fan for as long as I have (and many more), it felt like it!  Year after year we have had heart break. So many games that were decided at the last minute because of a missed field goal, interception, etc. It NEVER goes our way. Until this past weekend. Not sure if I’ve come down from the high yet!  I am hoping to get a group together to head down to Minneapolis this week to catch some evening shots of some landmarks that have turned purple in honor of our Minnesota Vikings.  SKOL!

At any rate, while the Vikings were playing INSIDE in the warm temps, the snow was falling OUTSIDE in quite frigid temps. I wasn’t able to venture further than my own back yard (I live in an apartment so not much was available, and I was feeling a bit under the weather), but I grabbed a few pretties in the snow before the big game.  Enjoy!

52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 5 – Wide Angle

What a crazy week it was, stopping by to post my challenge photo. Grabbed this one morning almost a week ago now. We had some light flurries and the sun was peaking in the trees in just the right way. I used my iPhone for this one on the way to work. Sometimes it feels like that’s when I do my best – to and from work!
