Erratic weather has plagued us up north, and we've gone from heavy snowfall to rain and a case of the "brown uglies" like a teetertotter lately. Went to one of my regular haunts, Telechick Creek, after a thaw, rain and new snowfall last Tuesday, to see if the new snow could give me some new shots.
A couple of Tuesday violin lesson cancellations gave me about three hours of playtime during daylight, so I packed up the Linhof 4x5 and went West to the Norman Lake area, where Telechick Road parallels the creek flowing out of Norman Lake. I got three keepers, which I also duplicated with the big Linhof 4x5. I'll be excited to see how those come out.
In the meantime, the present snaps were taken with my Canon Rebel 2Ti, kit lens, all at 1/125th at f11. This is about a 2 stop overexposure, so I had to work at bringing out highlights in the snow with the RAW files, with only moderate success. However, the exposure is bang-on for the HP5+ I was running in the Linhof, which was the point of the whole exercise, anyway.
Thanks for looking in!!

Beautiful images. Also great inspiration to learn photo composition. Not easy to expose in snow, most often 2 stop overexposure will do it. If you have any tips to learn composition, we are most interested. I know it is a long Journey, I have just started.
