So, if you live in central Texas, you know that last week it actually snowed! Real snow is not normal here. We do get sleet and ice fairly often, and I hear it widely regarded by locals as “snow”. About once a year, the sleet will freeze right before it hits the ground and scatter white little ice crystals about, but this is NOT snow. Trust me, I’m originally from Michigan! So, understandably, I tend not get too excited when I hear an Austin snow forecast.
So, imagine my delight about 2am last Wednesday, as I peeked out my apartment window to behold SNOW, actual SNOW! Real snow flakes were floating down into a fine powder blanket on the ground. Naturally, I grabbed my camera and tripod on my way out the door hoping to catch a rare sight. The lens on my camera was my Rokinon 85mm f/1.4. I love this lens and leave it on my camera most of the time.
The snow came down for about a good hour and then slowed, at which point I headed back. Inside, I warmed myself back up and went about doing something else. Distracted, I didn’t look at the footage until the next day. With a fresh outlook, I edited what I caught into this short. Hope you like it!
