This looks like a country lane, but it is actually in the City of Le Sueur--on the way to our compost area

Cool shots! Here down south we only got about 2 inches.

Decided to stick my head out the window and take a snapshot with my "new" SMC-F 28mm F2.8 with polarizer on:

Nice winter time shots. I like the 3rd one the best. I have a question though. I noticed that the color of the snow is different in each shot. In the first shot, the snow has a yellowish tint. In the second, there's a bit of magenta. In the last, there is a bit of blue. Now all of these shots were taken with daylight. Were they taken at different times in the day? I know that late evening shots will have that golden hue. Or did you add this affect in post processing? What white balance setting did you use? Auto, preset, or custom WB? Or did you just shoot in RAW?

All were shot using custom white balance (using an 18% grey card.) The second shot was taken right at sunrise, so that is where the tint is coming from. I didn't adjust color balance in any of them, although I imagine I could since I have the RAW files. The scene with the "lane" in it actually looks a bit blue, but this comes from the blue sky as you can see the snow in the bushes on the left is bright white.

We got about an inch last night after the rain, but it is melting right now.

At least it was someone else getting the snow. We in Buffalo always get a bad rap but this year the only snow we've gotten was the nasty storm in October. Otherwise the weather has been in the 40's and 50's with no snow in sight. You all can keep it this year.
