Photo: The view from our balcony after about 30 hours of snow. Isn’t it pretty?
Whenever we get one of those marathon snow systems here in Chicago where it snows non-stop for at least 18 hours, you can almost be guaranteed of three things when it finally stops:
- There’s a ton of snow on the ground,
- It’s going to be very frigid because all the moisture is out of the air,
- and the clouds will be all but gone and it will be super sunny.
That was the case earlier this week, and I took the opportunity to setup on our balcony and catch this shot in the morning before it got too bright out.
It’s an HDR image of 3 exposures, which was necessary since I wanted to capture the blue sky in the background and the snow down below. One of my HDR shots that doesn’t look like HDR, which is actually a big goal of mine.
