A View From Western Maryland

1st Snow Of the 09 Christmas Season

It was early morning and the snow had already started falling as I was getting up. New, fresh, first snow of the season. I grab my camera and took several photos and these are just a few of the images I captured.

I used a DSLR and an 18 - 105 lens for these; ISO was 200 taken at various settings, mostly about 1 stop over. In Photoshop Elements I adjusted levels, resized for web viewing and gave a slight sharpening. Admittedly in a couple of these images I did add an aging touch, not much, just wanted to change things up a little. I hope you like the effect.

To bad it wasn't Christmas Day, this would have been perfect; for me at least. This is Christmas day type of snow, it sticks to everything.

Yeah, this is my world, literally, and you are always welcome to it :-)


  1. 1st-snow_09_a, really stands out for me.

  2. Thanks Marc,

    Yeah, I sort of like that one the best also. That is one to which I added a little aged touch.
