Winter in May

It isn't but a short drive to find a winter wonderland. These photos were taken on the 24th of May, less than an hour from my front door. Snow can be difficult to photograph because it is easy to over-expose the snow to get proper exposure on the subject. This is where High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography comes in handy.

HDR allows for both highlights and shadows to be properly exposed for. So the trees are properly exposed while the snow is not overexposed.

That is where HDR truly shines.
I love how in these photographs there seems to be struggle between Winter refusing to let go and spring fighting to emerge.

It was an amazing and beautiful day.
