Snow in DFW

2015.02.28
pixel
Ten Mile Creek in Duncanville, TX from Joe Wilson Road at Cedar Hill Road. Cedar Hill road both direction is fairly flat but Joe Wilson leads downhill from east and west. Quite a few drivers didn't think about what the ice would do for the roads on the hills. Few made it to the top of the hills.

Speak of the devil, here are just a few. Three are on the wrong side of the road with a car approaching from the east. Fortunately he was able to come to a stop till the idiots got back on their side of the road. Funny I drive a turbo Hyundai Sonata, like the closest car and had no trouble at all.

As I came up from the creek bottom I these bright orange berries caught my eye. I circled around so that the road was to my back and had the woods for a background. I loved the way the orange stood out. Used a pretty wide open f/stop to blur the background.

Journey Baptist Church in Cedar Hill, TX. I've shot this church in all the seasons now and I like the winter best of all. The other seasons let you see some of the ugly of the church. The snow makes it look pretty pristine.

Relatively straight shot of an old sedan. Again I've shot in all the seasons. The land is posted no trespassing so I have to do my work with a telephoto. I'd love to catch the owner around to see if I could get permission to shoot closeups. Have to do it in the cold though, any other time, rattlesnakes, and a lot of them.
For some reason I always think of Bonnie and Clyde, who lived just off Singleton Blvd. in Dallas back in the day.

Same car, same spot. I took five shots and combined three of them in my Photomatix HDR program. OK which do you like the best?
pixel
Backed off the telephoto a little and this is what I got. Gives you a little different perspective on the earlier shots.

Another old auto, this time a truck. I couldn't get close, posted land again, but again the telephoto came through. I'm guessing early '50s, maybe Dodge with the shape of the cab. Pretty straight shot but I did cut back on the contrast and up the orange just a little.
pixel
HDR again of the previous photo. Used four shots to get this one. Again which do you think is best?
pixel
Really strange looking windmill. I've never seen one like it before. It was in a backyard and was apparently used for decoration only now.
pixel
Just a few shots around Southwest Dallas county. Duncanville/Cedar Hill area. Some are straight shots and some are HDR.

revenant They're all fascinating. I know you have it, but it's hard to imagine snow and Texas together. Stay warm and avoid drivers unused to it.
