Photos: After a Snowstorm in Vermont

The day after a snowstorm in Vermont, snow still clings to tree branches while ice covers the river in the distance.

Photographing snow scenes is hard, especially while wearing snowshoes!  The result of attempting to crouch low for this photo was almost a face full of snow.

For the picture below, the goal was to capture the texture of the snow and make it as sharp as possible.  The camera was set to f/3.5 at 1/4000 sec with ISO 100 in bright early afternoon light.

In this photo, it’s almost possible to see animals tracks in the snow.

Photo of the Day: New York City Street Performers and Times Square Crowds

As the tourists focus on the street dancing performance in New York City’s Times Square, a few people look elsewhere.

The colorfulness of the original photo was overwhelming – just like Times Square can be in person. Going black and white seemed to make the photo easier to mentally digest.
