Fresh Snow


Woke this morning to a fresh layer of snow that had fallen during the night . So of course I had to go out ant take photos . I tried using my lens I always use my zoom 55-300mm but  as it was still dusk this lens was taking the photos way to dark no matter what I did so I went and got my   60 mm Micro  lens as it lets more light in this lens  doesn’t zoom  but it did do the trick for the lighting .

I just love a fresh snow fall ! It is mild out to not that frigid cold today so even better and it looks like the sun is trying to rise .  January 2014 (2 of 5)-2

  The for  these photos below I switched back to my 55-300mm zoom  . As for the sun coming out well there was a beautiful display of sun light as it was rising  .

              As it was rising the colour was brighter but yet almost muffled like the colour was being forced  .

                    Like the rays were being bounced back off of something  , could it be a Sundog sun rise .

Sundogs may appear as a coloured patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low.

                                                 I have no idea but what ever it was doing it was beautiful !

                                               Seemed like the higher it got the more hazy looking it got .

I love fresh snow, too. So clean. Untouched. Perfect for photography. Your images are beautiful. Sometimes you need to switch lenses to get the right shot, and those fixed lenses are often perfect for low light scenes.

Your fresh snow is beautiful. I had never heard of a sundog sunrise. I learn something new all the time.
We are having cold weather with a chance of sleet tonight. Unusual weather for us in South Texas.

Gorgeous shots!

I'd heard the sundog reference a couple of days ago elsewhere... I had seen them before, but never heard them referred to as that.
