Procrastination - 19/365

While at the dog park I noticed the clouds would make a breathtaking long exposure landscape.  I have not used my 10 stop ND filter nearly enough and I was already getting excited to get it on my camera.  However, I decided to chisel some more ice from the front of my driveway and then I dilly-dallied inside getting my gear ready.  By the time I managed to get outside, my perfect clouds had been blown away by the wind.  

I still headed out into the park and found a couple of small wispy colds.  As I trudged along up to my knees in snow, I noted for the second time this weekend that bringing my snowshoes would have been a great idea since I rarely stay on the path.  

This image was taken with my wide angle lens equipped with a 10 stop ND filter.  I processed this image in analog efex using the wet plate filter.

Whispers of Winter

Snow is often a dreaded part of winter for many people.  In fact, my planned hike for today was cancelled due to the falling snow.  Rather than stay inside, I decided to embrace the winter wonderland.  After an hour and half in the dog park with Big O, and a 45 minute on leash walk with Little O, I grabbed my camera and headed to Fish Creek Park.  There was not a soul in sight.  The landscape was so peaceful, I could hear the whisper of snow falling all around me.
