Early Snow #5 (Through the Windshield)


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!



This and many other of your photos are superb. I am a professional photographer and cannot match these types of images. I too use a 5D, but mostly with a 24-105 lens.

I have just discovered your blog, forwarded by a friend. Your images are delightful. But the fact that you can make the most of the distortions created by a windshield and come up with a very special image is just a wonder to me. I hope to follow your work and your eye for the extent of your blog entries. Above all, keep shooting. Thanks for the opportunity to view your work!

Wow you have the most beautiful photos. Everything you shoot is fantastic. When this photo first loaded and only the top half was showing I thought it was a photo of some faraway galaxy taken by the hubble telescope.
You work magic and I love your work.
