More cold. More snow. Last night’s snow was a little wetter than we have been having lately so it was sticking to the trees.
Last night when I took the Sam out before going to bed I was amazed at much light was reflecting off the snow. It was a little past midnight I grabbed my tripod and shot from inside my kitchen. I spot metered for the snow that was on the ground. There was an orange-y color cast so I converted them to black and white. Check out those shutter speeds (just hover the mouse over the pictures for exposure info)
This morning/early afternoon the wind hadn’t blow the snow off the trees yet so I took a few more pictures. It was semi-overcast and I tried to meter for the sky.
I was about to try to shoot one more picture with the sun peeking out from directly behind a branch when a clump of snow fell directly on my head and splattered a few drops on my lens and body. I just know that picture would have been perfect 😛
