Sand Creek, 3:30 pm, January 2nd



Looking east from our road



Looking southwest from a tributary about a mile directly across the swamp from my place. You can just barely see the outlines of the white pines at my home.

Note: I edited the original photos for color saturation and reposted them today. They look much more like the original lighting now, way less blue. Digital photography is so fun!!

Beautiful pictures. Something very moving about the mid-winter snow in the North. Still… glad to be in 70-degree Arizona.

Beautiful and serene. It's 72 here, but we are bracing for a line of storms (with red tornado box) sliding towards us.

That's beautiful, Deb. We're having a lot of gray skies right now, and too warm-ish to snow. There is something about snow that takes the edge off of the ongoing gray. Lovely view and great photograph.

we haven't seen the sun in weeks...help...

There seems to be a preponderance of blue tones in the photos, which still works, but in reality everything was quite void of color.

The landscape is so similar to ours. And the lack of light, too, of course... only we're a little "lack-er" at 3:20 p.m.

It's been a very brown December in these parts, but I'm looking for a little snow cover in the next few weeks, hopefully. Not that I'm a shovelling addict, but it looks a little less depressing that way.

I believe the excessive blue is due to chromatic aberration of your lens. The blue end of the spectrum is refracted more than the red end. Ah... physics!
