Christmas is over, but this scene was so festive I couldn’t resist snapping a shot. I was scared of using my camera in the snow, so I did some research. If I want to shoot in that cold I need a plastic cover for the camera and my new UV lens filter. Also, I need to buy an extra battery if I’m in the cold for an extended period of time. It’s a lot of hassle, but the snow offers a fantastic subject and makes otherwise boring scenes full of interest, so it’s worth it. I just hope we get a bit more snow for me to practice with!
