Snowfall Night in Geneva, Switzerland
Posted on 12 Nov 2013 ©2013 Debashis Paul Photography
This shot was taken in Geneva,Switzerland and had taken from my 5th floor apartment of 18, Rue de Crespin. There are lot of memory associated with this picture and how I took it. It was a chilled cold winter night of end of November. I never tried night picture after I purchased my first DSLR. Bought a Tripod few days ago and thought to try this kind of shot from Balcony/Patio. It was -10C outside just after heavy snowfall of evening and 2 O'clock at night. Manage to cover myself enough, mounted the Tripod in balcony, zoomed with my 18-200 lense till 200mm and framed it, left that shutter open for 3+ mins.
I love this picture not only because of perfect balance of light, nice and pleasant layer of snow, the reflection of tree branches and the glaring background with soft green effect, but also a wonderful memory associated with it. I used to take lot of pictures from my balcony and though most of them are sunset photos this one if quite different and kind of aerial view.
