The Cottage Awaits






This set of images were taken during the last winter storm of the season,and I shot these around nine thirty at night. The long exposure recorded some color in the night sky which surprised me but it helped complete the images. Usually storms like this don’t hang around long but the snow hung on trees for about two days,which gave me ample time to capture some nice images. This quaint home with its red door,lovely architecture and snow-covered fence made the perfect subject on this rather still winter night. The view of the front required me to light the snow with flash to overwhelm a very bright street light that was casting a terrible shadow across the snow. The bottom photo includes a trellis with a lantern and that is what originally caught my eye as I was driving by because of the warm light against the cold blue of the snow.
