Macro Winterscape

Today we got a little bit of snow near the foothills of the Cascade mountains just outside of Seattle. I thought I would try some close up photos of some of the plants trying to reach spring time through this weather. The main thing I walked away with from these pictures is that I need to be more patient and use a tripod. Trying to handhold the camera for shots like this is a real crap shoot and most of the shots are throw aways.
