Icy Evergreen

Snow in October can create some interesting photo opportunities. Walking around without a tripod, I wasn't able to get any good shots of snow and ice on colorful Fall leaves or Holly. To get the kind of shot I was looking for would have required a small aperture for depth of field and could not be handheld.

I did, however, manage to capture this rather nice picture of some leftover snow and ice on an evergreen shrub branch which should have been pruned earlier in the summer.

EOS 50D, EF 300mm f/4L IS, ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/640 sec.

The weather forecast for today gives us a Winter Storm Warning with 3 to 6 inches of snow predicted. With the leaves still mostly on many trees, that should be interesting.
