Snow Piling Up: Mounds

Backyard Snow Mounds In January Storm

Here are two versions of the piles, mounds, or hummocks of snow in our backyard, taken this morning, January 16, 2023.

I added contrast and darkness to the first one below, in Photoshop.

The second one involved smoothing the snow in the Camera Raw Filter in Photoshop CC, achieving a bit of a blurring effect using sliders to decrease Clarity and Texture.

I know many folks are dealing with SERIOUS weather events and ours is only slightly inconveniencing and also much needed. (Snow is better than rain for replenishing drought-stricken regions.)

Wishing you well, and may the beauty I strive t share in photographs be yours.
