We are probably staying in Virginia for the winter which has very mild winters by Vermont standards. And I have become accustomed to being able to do winter landscapes right out my front door. Luckily yesterday we ended up on the southern boundary of the snowstorm that hit the northeast and we received a dusting of snow (2-3 inches). That was all I needed to decide to rise early for some pictures and the forecast was for a clearing sky. Landscapes are almost always enhanced by sunrise or sunset. Just 2 weeks after the winter equinox means photographers can arise at a decent hour and still catch the sunrise - 7:27A today. This lake/catch basin is a 7 minute walk from the house which made for a picture opportunity "almost out my back door". Olympus OMD E-M5, m.zuiko [email protected], 5 shot HDR, f8, ISO 200, 1/50s +/- 2 EV. The disadvantage to winter sunrises -it's colder (16 F and windy today).

Lovely - worth getting up early and out in the cold to catch the sunrise :)

David, your picture has all the possibilities of a winner except for the division of warmth. At sun up you are out there thinking about a picture when you were probably freezing. I do love the contrast of the sun trying to come up on a cold morning with a covering of whipped cream snow on top of a bed of forgotten grass. I would love to see you do Chestnut Ridge during a snowstorm or go over to Charles Co Maryland for a look at the Lee's first land called Ward's Corner. Now that would give us memories tugging at the heart.
