Life Goes On

To hear the weather guy you'd think the end of the world was coming with this lastest winter storm....well, we all lived to tell the tale!! We were lucky to be spared the worst of the winter storm yesterday....we only got somewhere around 8-10" of snow but unfortunately weren't spared the high winds which made for blizzard conditions and some really big drifts this morning. It was a beautiful sight this morning though, no doubt about it and the sun shone brightly all day so I just had to get out this afternoon so I could get some pictures as the sun was setting.
Well.. That is certainly a "hope" photo. Love the colors and balance.

I love the blue shadows and the amber sun. Very nice shot. Did you use any filters for this one? The fence and angles make it very pretty.

The shadows and the blue cast on the snow are stunning. We ended up with about 16 inches and lots of drifting. Also had sun and blue sky today.

@wac Thank you Wendy for the nice comment. I didn't use any filter, but I should have to tone down that glowing sun. I adjusted the contrast, sharpened and a touch of HDR in Picnik.
February 3rd, 2011  
Beautiful happy shot! Sunny! =) Thanks for your kind get well wishes. Hopefully I will be back to my old self soon.

ooooh! The lighting is perfect, the lens flare and those oh so wonderful shadows. Gorgeous!
February 4th, 2011  
Thanks for answering my question. I think I am going to buy those filters. For landscapes and sun, etc. i think they would be good to work with.
February 4th, 2011  
Wonderful photo. Everything is just right with the balanced tones and lines.

Spectacularly beautiful shot. Love those shadows. I went out early yesterday morning and everybody was blowing their driveway's, the plow had already come and downtown they were hauling off truckloads of snow to the city dump. I said, "everybody was talking gridlock and disaster on the tv, but in Iowa people everybody just gets out and does what has to be done".
