March Ice, Sunset

PHOTOGRAPH INFO

This photograph was taken last night at 7 p.m. (I love Daylight Savings Time!) The yellow stuff in the rows are oats which were planted last fall to hold the soil for a spring crop of timothy (hay for horses).

We had a rather surprising eight inches of snow & sleet on Friday -- most of it sleet. Shoveling the walkways was insanely exhausting! Each shovel-ful weighed about 20 pounds, no exaggeration. Usually we've seen the end of winter storms by now, but the winter of 2006-7 has been very unusual.

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L at 17mm, ISO 200, 1/100s at f/16. Basic curves adjustment and color balancing.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
