Three days prior, this area still had 4-6″ of snow on it. Snow that had fallen on Christmas Eve.
But thanks to a couple of days of rain, then warming up into the 50’s (10-14C), the snow completely disappeared.
Playing with the camera to get this image. It’s a composite of 51 separate photos, all shot through my EF 200/2.8L, c0mbined to give the look of being shot by a larger medium-format camera. Very shallow depth of field, silky out of focus background (and foreground if done right).
Doing the math and assuming a field of view approximating a 35mm lens, this would approximate an image shot with a 35/0.5. But that’s just a wag.
The original composite in .jpg format is 8763×4945 pixels (18.6MP) and weighs in at 68.2MB. A bit big to upload here.
