Snow in the Dark

Again, the frost remained overnight and I woke up to a lovely snowfall as well. Off I went with my tripod and camera to stand in the middle of the street to take some shots.

I shot these in the dark, obviously, so I decided ahead of time to lug my tripod up the street to help with steadying my camera. The streetlights were helpful with casting the light necessary for focusing.
I shot both at a speed of 1/20 with an aperture of f/4.
My ISO was 500, which I normally do not choose, but for a snowy scene, any increased grain wasn't an issue.
Once on my computer I converted to black and white, ridding the images of the orange hue that often accompanies low light photos.


  1. Gorgeous, Carla! This is the type of opportunity that excites me.

    1. Yes! These opportunities are not to be missed!
