Sun, Wind and Blowing Snow

I went up to Rocky Mountain National Park on Friday.  I first went to the Sheep Lake pull off to duplicate the fall shot I posted here earlier with a snow version..  However, when I arrived at the pull out for Sheep Lake the weather was brutal with 40 mph wind gusts.  I got out of my car and braced against the wind and took a few shots.  No art works here, just a study in persistence and grit!  SD1M and the 24-70 mm lens.

The first shot is looking west at storm clouds:

The second shot is looking east at partially clouds and sunny sky.  The wind is blowing up sheets of snow.

From there I drove over to Moraine park which was mainly shielded from the wind and took a few more shots.  Not the most photogenic situation, but I never let poor conditions stop me from wasting 'film' ;O)>.  As you can see there is still lots of snow in the park.
