Shoot and Edit: Winter

January 11, 2011 Sarah Coggins

Yesterday while reading Jill’s blog, I discovered the Shoot and Edit weekly challenge.  Since I’m trying to improve both my photography and editing skills, it seemed like a natural fit so I’m jumping right in with this week’s challenge – winter.  It was a perfect fit with our forecast of snow and then, well, the snow never materialized so I dug back into photos from last month for an icy shot of the plum tree in our front yard.  Here it is straight out of camera (SOOC):

Join in the fun with Forever’n Ever’n Always Photography and Ramblings and Photos:

Of course, this morning I wake up to find a slight bit of sleet & ice from overnight! Going to stick to my icy tree shot from December though.
