Project 365, Day 18 ("In The Garden", Day 2)

This was actually taken late last night, when I saw the snow come down. I wanted a photo of something with fresh snow on it, since most of the snow had melted in the past day or so. Of course, this meant flash, and I try not to keep my flash on the camera if I can help it, since head-on flash is, well, kind of flashy.

This twig with fresh snow on it drew my interest, since it was the only thing with color sticking out of the white landscape. I did some minor boosting of color on this one, since it would have been a fairly lifeless photo.

Lens and camera settings:
50mm f/2.0 @ f/5.6, 1/125sec and ISO 100. Flash off-camera left, 1/16th power, set off by pop-up flash at 1/64th power.
