December Snowfall on Cook’s Pond


December Snowfall on Cook’s Pond
Denville Township, New Jersey
Taken during last week’s snowfall. I used the pop-up flash on my Canon camera to freeze a few nearby snowflakes as they fell.

Snow on Rock Ridge Lake
Denville, New Jersey
December 2019
The snow was steady at this point of the day. I had about 4 attempts at each shot before the lens was covered in snowflakes and condensation. Luckily my mirrorless camera also has an electronic level which I can utilize through the viewfinder.

December Morning at Lake Arrowhead
Denville, New Jersey
A quick snapshot on my way to refill the bird feeder this morning. Using the back of my camera and the histogram I set a manual exposure to capture the sky detail. The foreground of the image required some subsequent post-processing brightening to round out the scene.
