Today was a gorgeous warm sunny day, with temperatures in the mid 60s (~18°C) and a warm breeze. T-Shirt weather. It's difficult to believe that just a few days ago we had lots of snow and temperatures approaching -10°F (-23°C).

A week ago I posted Snowy Frigid Ohio Morning, with lots of snow pictures. A few days later a storm brought a bunch more snow, and I went out early for some more pictures, from which I posted A Warmer Version of That “Warm” House Photo. This post has some more shots from after that second storm.

Early before sunrise, the light filtering through the clouds is decidedly blue/purple because it's lit only by the sky, which is very deep blue at that hour, and so the initial photos reflect that...

Once the sun comes up, the direct sunlight on top of the clouds filters through as a more true white, so for the rest of the photos I set the white balance to appropriately.

One comment so far...

Our winter in this part of Ohio has been lackluster this year. I can only count 2 snow “events” so far, I guess you were lucky enough to be here for one of them.
