Boulder After the “Storm”

I went out after the “blizzard” to make a few pictures of the aftermath. As you can see there wasn’t nearly as much snow as TV media had reported. This is what happens when TV has to do their own reporting instead of being able to use an already published print source for their information, but I digress. Pavement that otherwise would be a forgotten element in a picture becomes a great source of interesting light. Reflections from signs on buildings and cars can add depth to a flat surface. Shooting during the blue hour, the time just after the sun is completely below the horizon but still illuminates the sky, bathes everything in cool colors. Click through for a few more. Enjoy.

All of the pictures in this post were made using a Canon EF 40mm f2.8 STM lens and a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. If you don’t own any prime lenses I encourage you to pick one up and learn to zoom with your feet.
