Soooo- what do I do with my time while staying snuggly indoors???
After binge watching some shows on netflix I decided to play on the computer. I have made a few jaunts outdoors over the past week, including yesterday (braving -50 windchill ), to take photos of the beautiful snow that has fallen on us REGULARLY for almost a month. Turning lemons into lemonade by using the massive snowfall for some awesome photos and using the BIG CHILL for time to stay in and play!
The above photo was processed with Kim Klassen's 'love' texture but actually it was such a beautiful sunset I didn't want to process it too much. Mainly just darkened it up a bit. I think when the sun hasn't been out for several days and it's really cold outside that the sunsets seem so much more spectacular!
|Shed Some Light|
Taken at twilight when the sky was a dusky blue/gray.
Again, processed with Kim's 'love' texture twice at different levels & opacities.
I also played with the levels a bit first.
|My Favorite Willow|
We have a lot of willow trees in our neighborhood. I love them in the spring when they are just budding. I love them in the summer when they are swaying their green fronds in the wind. BUT I really love them in winter! They have such a beautiful golden color to them. The snow seems to really make them shine!
This photo was also processed with Kim's 'love' texture only once. I also used the omni spotlight on it just to focus more on the tree.
Processed with Kim's 'love' texture twice. Different levels & opacities.
My garage door is actually gray but with the processing it turned it a nice vintage teal color which I really love!
Hopefully, tomorrow will be above zero and I'll take a ride to the lakefront to take pictures of the magnificent Lake Michigan!
For all of you out there experiencing the freezing temps-stay warm.
