Helaine got home from the airport early. She has not left the house since. I’ve been in pajamas all day. It is snowing.
As much as I dislike snow, right now I am upset my forecast came in heavy. Yeah, that’s right. I’m upset we didn’t get more!
This is a sweet looking snow. The flakes are very tiny. There’s been little wind. Right now the fallen snow looks like a blanket.
I took the photo that accompanies this post at 11:08 pm. I just opened the door and put the camera on the top step. It’s a 10mm lens–wide angle. I used no flash, but kept the shutter open 30 seconds. It’s been color corrected, sharpened and brightened in Photoshop.
There was snow falling at the time, but lightly. In a 30 second exposure no portion of the frame is covered long enough to spoil the view. The snow disappears.
I like the fact that the snow was totally untouched when this was taken.
