Mom’s Snowy Smile

Mom's Snowy Smile

Yesterday we took the kids out for some sledding in the snow at a new spot. It ended up being a great one. I was primarily taking video and some still shots of the kids sledding, but I snapped this one of my wife carrying our youngest back up the hill.

I find snow scenes particularly difficult to capture with the bright reflectiveness of the snow throwing of the exposure and white balance. I have yet to purchase a good polarizing filter that would help in these situations, so I do my best to meter the people in the shot and hope for the best.
