I shot this image at 12:43 am and seemingly forgot the meaning of getting some sleep. This shot is the result of lamp posts along a walkway that give off a very strong orange glow. The snow clinging to the fence details made a nice foreground element.
Could hardly believe it when I made my way into our local park and no one had been there before me to track it all up. I thought I liked this view when it was in complete shade but when the sun broke through, it added another dimension with the shadows. One of the prettiest storms I have seen in a long time.
This is a part of the rail trail that runs through my town and it looked very peaceful with the snow-covered trees. If you look at the light post you can see how heavy the snow was falling and I found that as long as I was shooting toward the shadows, it looked like it was a clear night. An umbrella is a key element on nights like this.
