Antique Snowfall by L Hartley

Available to buy on…

Oklahoma City has had snow now for two days. Our pasture was pristine and white and still. I went out in it to recreate a classic snow scene, as people here have endured for generations. But then, the crunchy sounds under foot, the soft snow -I could not resits a little dash through the snow! Yes – I froze – it was 18 degrees! My camera became so cold, it froze as well! BUT it was FUN!

This photos is straight from the camera, as is, like all of my work.

  • I am delighted you noticed the diagonal!!!!! And yes – that white is WHITE! I love the way the black is contrasting………
