Patterns in the snow

Early this morning I took some photos before the plough would come along, before the busyness of the day would trample the clean snow underfoot.

DSCF6653 I used auto-enhance to show the drift patterns in the front yard

DSCF6656 Like a seam in the snow

DSCF6659My neighbour teen already out clearing snow from the family driveway

DSCF6662And look what turned up when I began to shovel snow, right near our house foundation, blown by the wind, preserved by the snow

More snow a’coming.

      Exactly what they remind me of. It is a certain directional wind that creates those dunes. Leaves get blown up in heaps there too, only they get scattered. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Will check your blog too.
