Another January Snow Storm Photo

Snow wreck
Took this from the train with my little Fujifilm S000 finepix P&S somewhere in NY or NJ off the Amtrak line.  It was from the last big storm on 1/26.  Sometimes that camera gets some pretty good shots!  It does not like bright photos at all though.  It just blacks out.  This photo is also as is.  It was snowing and overcast but it came out with no color whatsoever.

Another Snowstorm Another Snowflake


January 21, 2011 snow storm in Connecticut.  Snow crystal photo taken on blue felt.  I'm still getting the feel for getting the focus right on the snowflakes.  Typically the sky is pretty gray while it's snowing and the light is low.  I'm using a 60mm lens with one extender, my Manfrotto Tripod, and a remote shutter release.  I'm still getting blurry snow crystals yet they are getting better each time.

While everyone in the area is already getting tired of the snow, I can't wait for the next storm to try some more photos!

January 2011 Snowstorm


January 2011.  At least 24 inches of snow between 1/11 and 1/12 at our house in Connecticut.  My seasonal favorite tree provides the background of beauty for this snow storm again.  Doesn't take too long before the wind blows and takes away the white glow again.
