A Moment in Time/Day 6: Frozen in Time



Frozen in Time

Taken with a Canon Power Shot SX200 on SCN Feature with Snow Setting and Macro.  I had to underexpose it in order to see anything on my screen.  The photo was taken at about 8:30 am with a fairly clear sky (overcast an hr later at time of posting!).  The picture still wasn’t right, so I used the Auto Contrast feature on Picasa 3 to sharpen it up.  Specs: 1/25s, f/3.4, ISO: 80

When I went to put the heating on in the living room, I noticed there was frost on the glass panels of the balcony.  I took quite a few pictures, but I really like this one as it sort of looks like a spider’s web.

Here is the same picture retouched in Auto Color, which is more the way it really looked, but I really like the blue effect one can get when taking photos of snow.  What do you think?

  1. Yes, the blue conveys cold. Have you tried shining a light through the frost? Haven’t got it here at the moment, but I will try that when we do.

    • Thanks Chris. I was out on the balcony in my dressing gown! Too cold to think about shining a light, but will keep that in mind for next time!
