It snowed most of the day, but it was a warm, wet snow that covered the ground with white while turning to glittery drops on the branches.
I did play with the tones of this one in post processing -- just tones, no texture. I'm using the trial version of Nik Silver Efex -- I love it, and I want it so badly! I can't afford it though. Expect more b&w or desaturated photos in the next week, while the trial lasts. I also applied a free action I just downloaded -- Nelly Nero's seaweed. I adjusted it quite a bit though to fit the photo.

February 14, 2010: I'm a finalist on Pioneer Woman's blog! Please go take a look at all the wonderful depth of field photos there (and her previous entries as well -- there are more fantastic photos there!).
