My day#9 photo was taken with the help of an LED flashlight. I used the flashlight to highlight the main subject in the frame, while the rest was left dark. I figured that if I looked hard enough, I would be able to take a photo with similar characteristics without having to use a flashlight. Basically, I needed to look around for a light source that would play the role of my flashlight.

I took this photo from my balcony. I decided that a downward perspective would be good for a change.

Some of you may have heard about or are experiencing first-hand the heavy snow fall in Europe. I tried to capture my experience with this photo. The warm light seems to make it a little cozy while the snow-covered tree makes it a little spooky.

We got very heavy snow fall today. It was delayed by a couple of days though - initial forecasts had shown that the weekend would see heavy snow fall. Those who ski would have preferred the forecasts to be right. Tough luck.



I couldn't decide which of the two was my favorite, so I decided to post two photos today. Let me know which one is your favorite.

Both photos are beautiful..

I love the one with the blue light, but the other has much more characteristics.

By the way, I'm forgetting to say this. Your comment page is not working as its supposed to. When you post a comment, you normally get some letters that you should fill in, but the field is invisible. I normally use the "Tab" key to get to it, but most people won't know that. Try changing the settings to pop-up maybe?

That might also be the reason that you're not getting any comments apart from me.

Thanks for the compliment and the tip, Hassan. I didn't realize there was a problem posting comments. I hope it's fixed now. Do let me know.
