Another windshield shot taken Saturday evening during a brief but intense snow shower. I pulled over for this one, mostly because I had a car full of passengers. :)
"Onion snow" is a term that refers to a spring snowfall after the onions have been planted. We usually get one right around Easter each year.
There's a lot of detail in this image if you look at the larger version.
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 40mm, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/2500s, aperture f/5. Curves adjustment, color balancing for tone.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
Simply amazing... I just woke up and really wonder if my first morning web visit isn't stil a dream...
Amazing I'm saying... Sun and snow together... We never got lucky enough to have this in Paris !!! this picture motivates me to go and try freeze the falling rain once again... Picturing a nice blue sky is easy, but freezing snow flakes like this in a ray of light simply amazes me :-) Wonderful, Thenk you for this Kathleen !
Nicely done. And you didn't limit your speed to 45.
Absolutely amazing! This photo has such great atmosphere and color. Nice job!
Wow Kathleen. This is really beautiful. We saw some of this over the last few days.
Another nice tonal image. Nice trees, Nice diagonal alignment between the shoulder stripe and the power lines. Never heard the term "onion snow." Love it.
But for the absence of the dark circle in the center, I would have taken this for another two-and-a-quarter reflex shot.
Thanks for pulling over to share, it's so real.
This picture is absolutely dreamlike.
Nice atmosphere and colors.
what a great shot! i love the tones, the atmosphere and the snow! gorgeous:
Excellent shot Kathleen, really love the detail in this and the colours are perfect... has a golden feel to it.
Love this. Really nice mood.
simply beautiful. Such a simple shot, but with an awesome dreamlike quality to it.
Hmmm. I get sensor spots on my 5D too, but never this bad!
A great shot that just oozes atmosphere. I keep coming here to find your front page just takes my breath away.
Beautiful tones. That's a nice backlightning.
Beautiful fairytale quality to this shot. I've never heard that term before either (onion snow).
This shot reminds me of home in Chester County. I love the shot. It's the kind of snow where you can't resist cracking the window to feel it when driving through it. Kathleen - did I ever tell you that I started my blog after looking at yours for 2 years.
This is so poetically beautiful... Thank you.
