It was cold and rainy and had snowed during the night. I was in the yard looking for interesting foliage. I saw our ornamental hanging spinny kind of sculpture thing. It held the snow nicely, glistened from the rain, and was my final impulse shot for the day’s TAD.
Today and tomorrow are supposed to be very cold. Well, today is cold….so cold that, my idea for a TAD required me to quickly jump out of the car, make a few photos, and hope for the best. Parking can be a problem on such days, too. If it’s slippery and/or the road is very narrow, it’s just not worth it. Fortunately, I know of a place where there’s little traffic and I’ve photographed there before. I just didn’t know if I’d find something interesting.
What caught my attention when I arrived was the snow blowing across the road in front of these tobacco barns. Unfortunately, by the time I spotted it, parked, got out of the car, and shot, its intensity had diminished. Still, you can see a hint of it. It looks like the road is foggy or out-of-focus at the crest of the rise.
I usually run my photos through a post-process that applies painterly effects. I liked just one. So, I don’t know if I prefer the photo or the painterly version…
