2013 10-01 West of the River by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

Yes, it is October 1st but no, the snow hasn’t started falling yet. But it could do so soon. Such is the nature of living in the upper Great Plains. I’m guessing that some of my readers are more enthralled with snow than I am. I would also guess that many of those same people live in places where snow is a bit of a novelty. But it isn’t a novelty to me: I don’t like winter all that much, in spite of the fact that it provides attractive photo opportunities from time to time.

Incidentally, this isn’t the first time I’ve photographed this scene.

  1. Totally agree. The snow provides some impressive photo opportunities, but I don’t like it all that much either. A quick trip back to SD in January always reminds me of why I leave in October and come back in April!
