First Snow–The Girl Child

A little over a month ago, we had our first snow. (Fortunately, it was nothing like the 10”-12” we got last year, because I’m just not ready for that.) The Hubs was taking a nap before dinner, so I asked the Girl Child if she wanted to tag along while I went out to play with my camera in the snow. It was nearly dark, we were due at my mother-in-law’s soon for dinner, and I still had to wake up The Hubs, but we headed out to a nearby park anyway.

While I was aimlessly shooting, the Girl Child walked around in the snow. It was nearly dark and I turned around just in time to shoot this. It has become a personal favorite of mine!

I processed this in Lightroom to achieve the slightly hazy effect, but the lighting was odd that evening anyway. I just love this picture.
