I had to drive to Waterloo to pick up my daughter today for the holidays. Iowa is fairly scenic country, especially with a little bit of snow on the ground. I would love to spend the time exploring the country with a camera and a tripod, and of course long underwear. My dashboard thermometer recorded a temperature of -15 F along the way.
But with about five hours worth of driving to do, I did not have the time nor was I prepared to do it justice. The best I could do were a few snapshots from my camera out the window, and a cold walk across a parking lot to shoot a house near the convenience store.
Enjoy the holidays.
