Dad and Son

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 6 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

When I had big swatches of sky, I had to make certain that it wasn't snowing when I took shots. The snow showed up as if I had terrible sensor dust.

Nikon D700 F/9.0 ISO 200 44 mm (35mm equiv.)

exquisitie framing, awesome tones, and a funny and suitable title! i appreciate your difficulties in taking this picture - while falling snow can add to the charm of an image, it can also be a nuisance if not wanted!

@Franz: It would have been fine if it had looked like snow and not sensor dust.

A good composition with the tree placed so well. Fine capture of the snowy look. I can imagine how distracting the snow falling would have looked.
