Photo Details

  • Title: Darkness Comes Rolling In On The Winter Wind
  • State/Province/Region: Wisconsin
  • Country: United States
  • Description: A winter storm blowing snow over a farm in Wisconsin; my wife and I were braving the below zero temperatures driving around the country-side looking for surreal composition and once I drove past this scene I ended up driving backwards about 10 feet to take a shot that I had initially decided getting out of the car for would be too problematic to take with the cold and wind. Shot handheld with very limited time frame (frigid cold and a car coming down the road required me to be quick)as I hopped out of the car and took a few separate exposures to test the light as well as perspective. My followers have thought this is a black and white photo however it is actually sooc with a custom white balance I use for snow and I absolutely love how the coils of wire conduit that seem out of place next to the tree have these wonderful swirls of impacted snow. Only editing done to this shot was a sharpen via snapseed. To date this is my most popular photo and my personal favorite of the year. Canon EOS REBEL T3i Exposure: 0.002 sec (1/500) Aperture: f/11.0 ISO Speed: 100 Focal Length: 43 mm with kit lens believe it or not
