Day 20/365 9 inches

Yup- 9 inches and counting.  It's still snowing and I can't believe it!  I don't think we've had this deep of snow since I was little in like 1982 or something.  I want to go take pictures outside really bad right now, but I'm going to try and take a little ride to Walmart first to see how bad the roads are.  I'm hoping (praying, begging, chanting, whatever) that we don't have school again tomorrow and then I will definitely go out to the Botanical Garden or something and get some sweet snow pictures.

Snow is obviously very hard to photograph.  I think I have the right color of snow in this picture.  Since I'm shooting in RAW now I can adjust the white balance very easily.  It looked too blue when I saw the shot and so I changed the color temperature and white balance.  I just never know if what I see on my screen is the same as what others see. 

If I get some awesome pics later I will post them as a Day 20 part 2.
EXIF info: Canon T2i, 100mmTokina lens, 1/1000 sec, f8, ISO 400, flash off.


  1. A very good thing...I can only handle work everyother day or so. Hope you get that chance to get more awesome snow pics...don't get this chance very often.

  2. Great minds think alike! I just posted a similar picture. :)
    I think the snow color looks good. On my monitor it has a very slight tinge of green, but I know mine's a little off.
    Can't wait to see what pictures you get. Here's hoping for another snow day!

  3. Thought I commented here but guess it didn't go thru.... This would be the only time I would complain about getting 9 inches..tee hee

  4. Paige- I got your other message earlier today, but I always forget to "publish" it when I'm reading it in email. Sorry.
