Valley City, ND (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The same place, more or less, as in my "Thanksgiving Sunset 09" picture, but with 18 inches of snow added. The snow all fell in one record-breaking storm over Christmas.

When I take these photos without a flash, the camera washes out the sunset colors (to compensate for the dim light), but it leaves the sunset color reflected on the snow, which I lose by using a flash. So I am not sure which I prefer! It probably depends on how much I want the colors to show in the sky vs. in the snow.

About sdianas


I am primarily a musician (full-time arranger and occasional performer), but also love to take photos! How I would love to be able to capture details of trees, etc., against a sunset or in other dark conditions! I have a Canon A510 and a Canon S40, but neither of them can do it, perhaps because there are settings I am unaware of. If anyone can advise me how to get this effect, which I see often in Wunderground photos, I would be very grateful.
