First Snowfall
Sioux Falls South Dakota

Photograph of an early snowfall overlooking the Sioux River in SIoux Falls, South Dakota by landscape photographer Paul Heckel.

Photograph Details:
I’m not a winter person. Ok, let me rephrase that, I am not a snow person. I like winters just fine when they are warm and dry. Like in Arizona or Key West. Anyway, after an early snowfall, I drove around my hometown of Sioux Falls to capture some photos of the cold, white stuff. I photographed this scene from the 10th Street viaduct. Although I cringe at the thought of snow, I can certainly appreciate the beauty and the contrast it adds to landscape photos. Note the two little, cold ducks swimming in the middle of the frame.

“When I was a kid, I could literally spend 15 hours outside in the snow and I would still complain when my parents made me come inside. Now, after 15 minutes, I’m done.”
