I’m not sure which is worse: snow that cripples a city, or endless rain.
I don’t usually shoot in raw, but I tried it today to see what results I could get from my old camera. Unfamiliar with Lightroom, I applied the same minor level adjustment as the jpgs. Regardless the format—film in a darkroom or digital on a computer—learning will always be required.
I think I got it! I think I captured a snowflake, or at least two stacked on top of each other. Check the gallery below to see it up close and my favorite—moss—with snow!
It was quite strange waking up on March 6 to a trace of snow on the ground. It was lightly snowing when I was taking shots, and I wasn’t at all expecting to see the actual shape of a snowflake in my photos. I didn’t think the kit lens was capable. What a fun surprise!
P.S. The image darkened after bringing it into WordPress. I’m not sure what that’s about.
If I lived anywhere else in the world, it would have to be in a lush valley where the forest is every which way, mountains are plentiful, and farmland extends for miles; where the ocean, desert, canyons, and lava fields are a short drive away; where every season can be experienced.
