A similar shot from a few days before, right after ~20 inch snowfall. Didn't quite catch the best moment for it, the sun was slightly too high for the best colors. This missed shot is the reason I went again a few more times & tried to get a better one. >>6476134
Using a Nikon D60 with a basic, bundled lens. It's beginning to show it's age (8 years+ old tech now), but I can't afford a better one for a while. There's a handfull of stuck pixels and the autofocus isn't always sharp anymore. When I can shoot at 200 ISO (or even 100), it does a lot better than 400 ISO and up; these shots were at 200 ISO, so some of the blur is the fact that the shutter was something like 1/60 second.
Still get a few good shots now & again when I've time to try. Working on my 4th or 5th time around the photo count now, so this is either shot #45,374 or #55,374. Definitely got my money's worth out of it.
