The Fleeting Texas Snow

We had a brief layering of snow out here in Austin on Friday, just long enough to slap together a snowman. And once you have a snowman, you have all the ingredients for a time-lapse video. I shot this in the front yard, using my cheap digital camera and an exposure every five to twenty minutes. It takes all day for the snowman to collapse, from about 11AM to 5PM. I like how the snow-flesh dissolves away from the sunlight. Perhaps snowmen are part vampire?
