I know what the calendar says, but I’m still scrapping my car windshield and wearing winter coats. I’m also still working through some wintry images and enjoying it. We didn’t get much snow this past winter, but some of what we did receive was lovely. It was the kind of snowfall that left a visual impression of the land instead of overwhelming it.

The image below was made during one of our March snows and it was one of the most visually pleasing snows I’ve ever experienced. As a result I bolted out of the house the morning of and went to work. With the sun rising, there was both warm light and cool shadow to work with. I concentrated on those aspects of the land that excited me the most, contrast and form.

I used an Olympus OM-D E5 with a Panasonic 100-300mm lens to isolate and compress the composition. Working in RAW format, I then developed the image in Lightroom and finished it in Photoshop.

  1. It is scenes like you captured here Paul that make me miss a little of Winter. unfortunately they are usually far and few between the long spells of cold and not much else. I remember when we had a snowstorm in May once!

    1. Thanks for the visit Mark. I don’t need much snow, I’m glad we get smaller storms mostly. I would not want snow in May. I did photograph snow in April once in Colonial Williamsburg, VA.
