I trekked out to the Rexburg Nature Park in the middle of Sunday’s snowstorm to see what I could find. Turns out, there aren’t a lot of living, breathing animals here in January. But it was fun to hike around and I got a couple of shots that I thought were worthy of the blog. Unfortunately, because of the snow, the sky was grey and dreary so there was almost no color anywhere. But I was able to find a couple areas where cat tails were growing and then as I was leaving, I finally saw some living creatures: birds! They were so far away I had to zoom as far in as I could (200mm) to capture both shots.
I learned that shooting during a snowstorm in a barren tundra is difficult. Does anyone have any tips on how to capture more vibrant shots when the weather is dismal?
