Wordless Wednesday - Sunrise in Snow Dust

Shyla takes off at sunrise

Meadow floor covered in ice crystals
The second photo is my Dogwood Week 3 Challenge photo - the challenge was to use either aperture or shutter speed to enhance my creative intent. In this case, I used a wide open aperture (very low f number: f/2.0) to make a single blade of grass covered in frost stand out from the forest of grass blades on the meadow floor.

I used a similar technique for the first photo. I used a wide aperture (f/2.5) so that Shyla would be in focus while the forest behind her was not.

  10. Oh dear friends you should be in NC it has been snowing since 9 am...and continues to do so. Expecting 2-5" A LOT for us. Sometimes we don't get 5" in an entire winter. AnyWAYS it is gonna freeze over tonight and be quite messy tomorrow. We 3 seniors are hunkered down. Good news it is will be in the 60's this weekend
