Snow Storm, Rocks State Park

Harford County, MD

Five days into spring the Harford County area had it first significant snow fall of the year. An unusually late snow event like this (March 25th) just had to be the first posting on my Spring Latest Work blog. This image and the ones to follow were made during the storm. Shooting in a snow storm is challenging in several ways including keeping the blowing snow off the front lens element. The high key scenery and reduced visibility of distant backgrounds makes for ideal black and white renderings. Colors tend to be lost in all of the snow leaving the original color camera files with a monochrome look. This file was converted to B&W in CS5 after DxO rectification which included a RAW file preset to "vivid colors" to deepen the blacks.

This photograph captures the sense of the elements within the stormy forest environment. The high res enlargement reveals much more detail, including the snow flakes falling from the sky. Zoom around on the high res image to see all of the late March flakes.

The Alligator, Rocks State Park

Well, that's what I call it anyway. I don't know if this rock has an official name; if not, "The Alligator" is just perfect.

Towering high over the Deer Creek valley is the peak of a rock cliff known as the "King and Queen Seat."
