Taos in winter

We spent Christmas week, 2016 in Taos, NM. We arrived on Dec. 24, and that night it snowed a few inches. I got up early on Christmas morning and took a photography walk around the historic district.

(All that bare land around the edge of the lake is lake bottom. The lake is low due to drought.)
Lately, I’ve taken a lot of opportunities to sharpen my advanced photography skills. Composition-wise, this photo is nothing special. However, with automatic exposure, my camera was severely underexposing this scene. Therefore, I switched to manual to overexpose it somewhat. Nice colors.

Seagull
Last Saturday, we went on the Vanishing Texas River Cruise. I took a bunch of photos of seagulls as kids fed them off the back of the boat. It was a crisp clear winter day which provided a nice background. Since there was harsh sunlight, I was expecting the gulls to be heavily shadowed. However, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the reflection off the lake lighted them quite well from below.

I found this photo as I was going through my archive looking for something else. As long-exposure photos go, nothing earth-shattering, but I liked the lighted background and the fact that the sparkler-holder was still enough to be identifiable.
