As we get closer to Christmas and the new year is right around the corner, I have made some resolutions. One of them is to take the time to grab the camera when I see something beautiful and get the shot, no matter how inconvenient it may be.
Recently we had an ice storm that cut off our power for a day and covered all the trees in a thick layer of ice. It was about 9pm and I was ready to curl up in bed for the night. It was freezing and windy but my husband looked outside at this beautiful ice covered tree silhouetted by the moon (image below). The cold wind and our ice covered lawn made it a bit uncomfortable, but I went out with my tripod and took a few shots. I used a long shutter speed and low aperture. It’s not a sharp picture, as the wind kept the branches in motion, but I am so glad I didn’t pass it by.
Make this your New Year’s resolution too and you won’t regret it! 🙂 Happy Holidays!
