The Photoblog of Jay Williams

I awoke last Saturday to a winter wonderland. All of the grass was covered, and the snow was continuing to fall. My wife and I got bundled up, and spent the whole day playing outside in the snow. We even built a snowman!

In Alabama, snow is a rare treat, so you’ve gotta enjoy it while you’ve got it! Within a few days, all of the snow was gone, but amazingly the snowman is still holding in there, barely.

As far as photography goes, I’m finding Manual is steadily becoming my mode of choice. It allows me to lock down the exposure to the brightness I want. And when you’re shooting in a high-key environment, like snow, that’s a big plus!
