A couple of weeks ago we had a modest snowfall, about 3 inches. However, the snow was of that wet, clumping variety that clings like soft, white diamonds to the limbs of trees. Immediately after the snowfall the temperatures dropped and the wind picked up. I drove out to Stephens State Park at near midnight, and spent a very pleasuable hour snapping away...

(I apologize for the small size and the degradation of detail in the following photos; the file size limit of the forum necessitated small images and some .jpg compression.)

Especially like the first one Very nice.

If you are worried about file size, try saving as a jpg in Irfanview (a really good free program available in the web). The jpg compression from Irfanview seems to produce a lot smaller files than Photoshop for some reason. For example, I saved your image as a 90% quality jpg in Irfanview and the file size went from 227Kb to 158Kb with no visible loss in image quality and it keeps all the EXIF information. I do all my photo processing in Photoshop, then do the final compression for the web page in Irfanview.

Cheers,
Ollie

What a chance of having fine illumination. İf you omit the ground on #1 picture, the rest looks like a 2d cutout of Unicef christmas ornaments. Looks like an abstact and surreal image. So, very exciting and beautiful.

Also no harm to mention again about the beauty of blue sky.
