After spending a bit of time processing a few of those images I thought I’d share some quick thoughts about working with dull winter scenes in post.

Late Fall River Scenes at Wilkes Dam

There are some times of the year in Southern Ontario that tend to make it difficult to find some motivation to do landscape photography. Early December is one of those times.
