    Neat capture! I really like the effect of the sunbeams through the clouds!

Thank you Brenda!
As you learn about exposure and the latitude of your film or digital image sensor, you know when you can capture shots like this - where the sun is enough behind the clouds to be overexposed in order to capture detail in the rest of the scene.
Plus, the snow acting as a fill card, bouncing in light to your subject doesn't hurt too.
All while the storm light changes every second, and you have to capture moving subjects in knee-deep snow!

Stunning capture, Sean! Definitely tricky lighting situation which you've mastered here quite well!

Thank you Lisa,
Learning exposure takes time, practicing in a variety of circumstances. But as you improve, you find ways to use your limitations to your advantag e- and that's when you truly begin to create images.
