that's alotta snow

Heard the plow coming up my street last night as I was heading to bed, so I thought I'd see if I could catch him streaking by.

This was on a tripod - 8 second exposure at f/6.3 and ISO 1250 converted to B&W in lightroom. I used the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lens that hardly ever leaves my 30d. The two are nearly inseparable. I shot this from inside my house and had to shield the window from the lights from my router as the reflection was showing up in the shots.

We ended up with nearly a foot of snow. Took me over an hour to clear the driveway this morning, and we're expected to get more tomorrow. I knew the first winter I came back from California was going to be a good one...

Nice shot! Very peaceful (even though there's really a plow going by). I love it in b&w. I find myself never converting to or shooting b&w. Makes me miss having to buy film and make the decision AHEAD of time.
