Instead of earthquakes today we had, in fact 8 hours of snow falling all day from 8 am this morning.
That was my driveway and garden 9.30am this morning. We had taken our work laptops home, and the boss text around 8am to recommend we work from home. Fine with me, I cranked up the pellet fire and the laptop and got stuck in. Lots of customers either stayed home or went home early so was a quiet but steady day.
Snow continued heavy and steady but I wanted to get out and get more photos. I stayed in last year, I didn’t want to drive due to all the other idiots out there, so I walked around the corner to a park with my camera tucked in the front of my jacket for protection. Out I went in the hope I didn’t slip over and break something.
I experimented with shutter speeds with the first photo, I was trying to get the falling snow in the image, and it took a bit of messing around before I got it right. I had my shutter speeds too slow, and I had to crank the ISO up to 1250 to allow the camera to take the shot as it was very dull and overcast.
For my walk, I ended up just setting the camera on P because it was doing a good job at that setting, still with the high ISO. I didn’t have too much problem with metering off the snow because the sky was so dull and heavy and grey, therefore correct exposure seemed to be handled by the camera OK.
Tomorrow is supposed to be cold and frosty and fine, and I suspect I will be working from home again as the roads will be treacherous tomorrow. The cat will be happy to spend the day asleep in front of the fire again 🙂
