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.
