This picture comes from almost exactly a year ago in 2015, when my fiance and I rented a cabin in the New Hampshire woods for her birthday weekend. The cabin sat on a hill overlooking a lake, and almost as soon as we arrived is started snowing, and snowing heavily. This was a year of legendary snow for the New England area, and the snow we got while up there only piled on top of existing snow.

Lake Cabin Snowstorm

It was a perfectly picturesque setting for a winter weekend at a cabin. The lake below the cabin had a small island on it, with a tiny cabin on the island itself. One afternoon I wrestled the tripod into the snow to get this shot of the lake amidst the falling snow, which quickly became one of my favorite winter shots.
