We had our first snow on November 18th and 19th and I took +/- 400 shots between the two days. This is another in that series of photographs.
This photo was taken through the windshield of my car along Durham Road, in front of my favorite tree in Durham Township -- it's a red oak and I'm guessing it's about 200-250 years old.
One thing I learned is that it's not easy taking a windshield shot with the 70-200 lens unless you put the seat back a bit! :)
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens at 70mm, ISO 400, f/2.8, shutter 1/640s. Curves adjustments, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
So this how you have redefined what VW means..... View through Windshield! Very winsome.
Lovely shot, neat effect in the middle of the photo from your windscreen!
Wow this is awesome! I'm jealous that it's already snowing for you, I wish we could get some here in New Jersey!
Surreal and beautiful. The effect is stunning. I think I like this even better than the previous one.
oh wow, again awesome shot.
Thanks for the photos btw, we went over the cds last night! quite amazing.
I have been loving this early snow series. Yes, I love snow, but mostly I love these photographs. I've had to rotate my desktop image constantly because each new installment becomes my favorite. Thanks.
TOTALLY DREAMY--painting with light, unreal! Thank God for adjustable seats and THAT seat was adjusted perfectly. Perfectly amazing. Can this be my favorite tree too?.....and my favorite double yellow lines?.....and my favorite house on the left?.....and.....everything?
Tip for Geoff, I avoided having to pick one by putting them all into one folder and having them auto rotate as a screen saver slide show.
Who would have thought a shot through a windshield could add such a cool dimension? beautiful shot.
My free issue of Pennsylvania magazine arrived in the mail this week. It was delightful to see your photos on printed on slick glossy instead of seen on the laptop screen.
just a beautiful gauzy dream-like memory of winters past. gorgeous.
"Through the windshield" often means sub-par quality, but not so here: this is amazing.
I'm really enjoying the snow theme.... and on top of that... this picture just keeps me wanting to look at it... fantastik!
Opened your page to a rust-colored blur that looked like guts, or drowned leaves. Then as I moved down the picture revealed itself. Worked like a Chinese scroll: a little at a time revealed through unrolling. Curious that it moved from what seemed sublimely abstract color lumps to the very mundane road.
And then I had to scroll up again to see what I saw.
Great shot, hard to believe it was through the windshield. Very creative way to make a great image.
This looks like a dream.
A very, very good dream.
Some of us may drive and some of us may be driven but we all move inexorably forward. We must not be afraid to pull off the road for awhile to rest, regroup and receive the "sustenance" we need to regain our strength. The fog may still be in front of us but remember that we have already traveled through it to get to where we now stand. When we are ready to accept the past, understand the present and face the future, then we will get back on the road and continue the journey.
I found your page through Clary Pfeiffer's blog... Clary is right. You are amazing. I think I'll become a regular! :)
Very cool shot Kathleen! You were very lucky to still have so much autumn color when this snow came through - by mid-November all of mine was pretty much gone.
