~Snow Blower~

Uploaded: January 17, 2010


I can't remember the last time it actually snowed for Christmas here in Dallas... either way- I was amazed and had to go take photos. So I dawned a ski mask, topped with a beanie hat, wrapped in a scarf because the wind was blowing 25-30mph, but it was all worth it!

This is a park by my best friend's house in Carrollton (suburb of Dallas), TX. Taken right after the sun went down, with a flash set at the end of the exposure.

This is a superb winter image - great use of the strobe. Well worth the effort expended to get this shot. #1228134
