Considering the Midwest is getting pounded by the snowstorm of the century (could be!), I'm thankful to be watching it from my living room window! Even with the blizzard raging, our bird feeders are probably as busy as they've been all winter and one of our feeders is in need of a refill. Just great!
Since there is no way I'm getting out for an type of photography today (except some shots of the crazy birds), I've decided to post another picture from the weekend.
What first caught my eye for this photograph was the fading sunlight painting the top of the tree in the distance. As I set up for the photo, I decided to try and get the contrast between the cold, snow covered field and the bright blue, almost inviting, sky. In my opinion, the fact that the field is in shadow helps give it a feeling of being colder than it really is. Finally, like the picture I posted a few days ago, the clouds add the final touch to the image.
