In getting home on Wednesday evening I received a text to say that work over the next two days would be cancelled due to a status red weather alert.
So what else is one to do but head outdoors to the local park and greet the storm that was starting to get stuck into Cork.
I’d been wanting to capture this bent tree for a good while, but either I didn’t have my camera on me, or the light and weather did the scene no justice.
At last I think Storm Emma and The Beast from the East combined to bring a shot deserving of the tree. Conditions were blizzard like when taking the image.
The above image has been processed in Lightroom, while the original is set out below.
So which do you prefer “Start of the Storm” or “Original Cold”.
Don’t know how I managed to avoid getting snowflakes on the lens.
