Day 46 – A bit of snow!

Well, more than a bit, but not a dumping. The morning commute was a bit of a bear, but we need the snow (and lots more, frankly).  It was  a busy, busy morning and I didn’t get to go outside until the sun was high in the sky and the melt had begun in earnest, but I managed to get a few good shots.  I’m torn between the two of these. I love the pine, but I also really like the second with its textures and delicate buds peeking out of the snow. I’m also very happy with the sharpness of both. Click on photos for larger resolution and you’ll see what I mean. The second one’s flowers have exquisite texture. Exposing for snow can be tricky, and I’m not quite satisfied with that aspect of my shots.  #2 seems a little warm, but neither do I want the snow to be too blue.

I’m posting early because after work I’m headed over to the UNR lighting studio to work on our third project with a couple of my classmates.
