First Snow

This shot is of the first snow in my hometown of Fairport, New York. My father owns a brewery located right across from this iconic village church. I was closing up on the night I took this photograph when the snow began falling very heavily. I drove home to get my camera and played around with the manual settings to try to capture both the snow and the church. I added an iPhoto filter and loved the way it made the shot look more like a painting than a photograph. The resultant dream-like, blue haze evokes a calm feeling of peace reflective of that I feel when at home and during the holiday season.
