The first snow of the season, here, melted quickly. Turns out you don’t need many daylight hours for most of the white stuff to evaporate.
This is what it was like the night before. It wasn’t deep enough to warrant shoveling, but the coating was a thick enough to paint the town white. At least for a short while.
Double exposure in the process of HDR can produce some interesting effects… A car’s brake light stands out — one exposure has the car / light / shadow; the next, no car.
Low-light conditions start to get pretty grainy with phone cameras. It’s a consequence of the physical size of the camera “retina” (besides the fact that semiconductors are used); the smaller the pixels, the fewer the photons can be picked up, hence noise. (Professional cameras have physically larger pixel sensors.)
But this story doesn’t end there. Tuesday, I took the opportunity to revisit the path near our house. Can you believe it’s been a year since I first began to explore that area?
It’s no wonder I heard chainsaws after the storm.
It something else, to see patches of snow on a landscape of brown leaves.
And those crisp leaves you only see through the colder months. (Click a photo to enlarge.)
Sometimes, I think, hey I could do NaBloPoMo. And then, the ideas and unplanned events run out, which turns the abbreviation into: No.
With all the dropped branches from the winds went the bucket.
Hopefully, my life path will develop in the coming months…
The iPhone camera does a fairly good job with these scenes. The green skies (partly due to UV pickup), I don’t appreciate so much.
The neighbors have apparently been using that small area with the collapsed table (old summer resting area?) to store cut branches and logs.
Our own branch pile back home also takes on a different look with the snow.
Well, that’s it for now. There’ll always be more ahead, but now I must rest my weary… head.
Until next time…
