- Description: Often in CT the snow is so long in coming that the lakes and ponds have been frozen over. On occasion, however, we get lucky and have a few times to have snow while the water is still open, This was one of those times - an early December snow. Knowing ahead of time of some good locations, I grabbed my gear and headed out to the small boat launch area at the nearby state park. This was one of my favorites of many that day.
- Gear: Canon XTi, Canon EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
