Winter Road

Winter Road

The snow is going away with the warm weather – might rain tonight!  We’re now getting into the only part of the year  I do not enjoy – late Winter.  Still dark, snow, rain, warm , cold, wet, a nice day and then a bunch of sloppy ones!  Oh, well, Spring is on its way; global warming don’t fail me now!

This shot was taken with my newish 100mm macro.  You don’t normally think of a macro (or a 100mm) as landscape lenses but I think this really works for this photo.  The 100mm compresses the scene and gives a wonderful sense depth and distance.  The macro prime is extremely sharp – in fact I softened it up a bit in the upper trees to keep each branch from being a distraction.

Frosty Morning on the Wiouwash Trail

Frosty Morning

A cold and frosty morning on the Wiouwash State trial – Neenah.  Last night it was really damp and the frost was everywhere this morning.  And then around luch time the snow came in and dropped 4-6 inches.  I took this before work and you can see the mist hanging in the air.  As always I over exposed by about 1/2 a stop to get the snow to white.  I also did a bit of burning in photoshop to smooth out the trial.
