Those two words are not normally in the same sentence, but they came together yesterday as Austin got hit with an unusual but awesome snowstorm. It was not a big snowstorm that snarls up everything, but it was soft and consistent and actually stuck around for a while. There was still snow today visible in a lot of places. Like many folks, once it really started coming down, I abandoned any hope of productivity and went out with the camera. I got this shot from the outlook over the 360 bridge. I also did a bunch of other shots that I will share in time, like maybe in the summer when we are sweating to 100 degree temps.
This is a single exposure taken at f/9. I made some adjustments in PSE and then ran it through Topaz Adjust just for fun. I converted it to Black & White once I got it back into Aperture. I thought the monochrome look worked well for a snow scene. One version that I got from Topaz is this color version below. Let me know what you think! It is a little bit unreal (our lake isn't usually that blue) but I thought it was fun anyways.
