Another of those 3:30 in the morning shots. Pretty much a 'what-if' shot; as in what if I tried these camera settings or those ones and then fight to get the focus correct once details started to emerge from the darkness. Lighting courtesy of a distant street lamp casting a warm glow on the snow covered ground. Shooting interrupted occasionally by the wayward lights of a passing vehicle. It wouldn't do to be too illuminated at this time of day.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

In my opinion this is a good entry for the focus contest. The courtesy of the street lamp is not to be underestimated by no means ! :)
Snow makes for the pinkish orange tone.
Neat and most pleasant and not too cold which is of some importance these days.

You must be a night person Wendell, I think you did a fine job, I like the background color tones, adds more elements to your image.

Either great planning or blind luck in getting shot!

(Wouldn't do to be illuminated at this time of 'Night' either eh!)

Great idea, and purfick for the current contest

Your experimenting paid off nicely Wendell. I too set plans in my mind to awake very early and head into Venice for morning light photos (and no tourists). I always forget to set the alarm!

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Beautiful looking photography and i love the warm colours in this photo and the detail in the leafs is just right and nice composition too.

There is a real warmth to this despite the little frost on the leaves - a successful experiment Wendell - nice work.
