I thought it was interesting the way the rail shadow cascaded down the snow covered steps. It was also amazing that no one had yet disturbed the snow with footprints.

  1. I just want to stare at this all day. There’s something pure about it. I love the colour of the sky

    • Oh and you know I cropped out some of that sky, hated to do it, but the horizon was smack in the center and it drove me crazy.
      That little speck of white near the right upper hand rail is the moon.

  2. great shot! love the way your eye gets drawn up the stairs.

  3. Thank you Sheila.

  4. Another great snowscape, Kitty… I really like the wind patterns and how stark the contrasts are between the whites and blues and blacks. Which brings up an interesting point… it’s the white light that I can’t find. Our (Canada) municipal streetlights are yellow to cut down on light pollution, and cost. The only white overhead lights are on private property, like the new high school. I’ll have to get down there before everything melts.

    So… after you took the shot, did you try walking up the staircase?

  5. Gabriel, in your photo editing software, you need to remove the color cast. Most programs have it. Or you could fool around with the white balance settings in the camera if it allows.
    Picassa is free photo editing software on the internet that a lot of Flickr photographers use and they get great results.

    I didn’t walk up this staircase, but another that was about twenty feet away from it. That one already had lots of prints on it.

  6. Great shot ! I looks so peaceful… Beautiful constrast between snow-white and night-blue. The shadow of the ramp really catches the eye, too.
