14/351

Yesterday we received our third snow storm since Christmas. While this storm was considered a mere dusting at 6”, it was a enough to create a marvelous winter wonderland. The soft powder lay still on all of the out stretched tree branches. Although temperatures were frigid, my friend and I could not pass up the opportunity to capture some photographs.
When the sun finally made it’s presents, I played around with creating starbursts. While this photo is over exposed for my liking, I am pleased with the starburst.

The starburst is awesome.

I think the exposure is nice, as it looks like the sun is so bright that it is causing the slight overexposure

Thank you for your sweet comment!

Your pictures are wonderful. The starburst is beautiful. Your pictures almost make me wish it snowed here - almost.

I love how the starburst makes it seem even crisper and colder than it would already look.
