Week 40, Day 284, February 3, 2010, Snow Hand

As I walked by a window I noticed an interesting effect on the rail in front of the building.  The snow that was sitting on the top of the rail was beginning to melt.  The snow was warm enough to stick to the railing, and slide to the bottom.  I thought it was an interesting effect, so I took a photo.

Tonight is the 4th monthly meeting for the Greater Groton Photo Club.  We each had a challenge to photograph snow this past month, and bring in 5 of our favorite photos.  I can't wait to see what people bring.  It should be a lot of fun.

Lessons Learned:
  • Great subjects to photograph are around every corner, or maybe even every rail.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/60 sec, Aperture f/9.1, ISO 100, Focal Length 40 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, hand held, converted to black and white in Picasa.

That's really cool! It defies reality; it looks like someone did it on purpose, but that's impossible. Great shot, and looks awesome in B&W!

Great shot! Looks like the snow is hugging the railing! Snow is tricky to shoot well - this looks awesome!

Love this shot! It is really cool in person, too, as I saw it at photo club last night.
