2/52 [down by the riverside]

took advantage of our first real snowfall (finally!) and went for a walk down by the river (River Park, to be exact). Augie enjoyed running and playing around in the snow, not to mention all the smells, and even got to say "hello" to the ducks & geese. (I think it was hello, anyway.)


I shot this to overexpose for the overcast, snowy landscape, mainly because I knew I could pull down the dark end more easily than trying to bring up a darker initial exposure. I also went with a "cloudy" white balance to warm up the colors of her coat and the background, which is trees & shrubs reflected in the river. Also, I cloned out the leash line where it showed on her flank. It's so thin that it didn't really stand out against the snow, but the lead section and clasp was distracting.
