We had a once in a decade snow storm last night. I estimate we got 5 to 6 inches total. Schools were cancelled by 7:00 pm due to how much snow had already fallen and stuck to the roads.

All of these photographs were taken at night. The first nine were shot around dinner time with a high ISO setting, which accounts for the large amounts of noise in them. The last six were taken on a tripod at 9:00 pm long after the sun had gone down. There is a parking lot near our neighborhood, and the sodium vapor lights spill over lighting up the night. When it snows, those lights kind of give everything a "natural" sepia tone. It is very odd lighting, and I wanted to see if I could capture it. I processed three images two different ways. The first is generally how it looked with the sodium vapor lights. The second version is color corrected to remove the sepia color cast. I found it interesting how the same image looks different depending on the color of the ambient light.
