Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Canon 50mm f/1.8 II, ISO 100, f/2.0, 1/4000 sec.
  Something that is great about shooting in the snow is that it contrasts dark colors so much.
  When my family and I were out in the back yard building a snowman on Tuesday I grabbed the camera to grab some pics of it all.  After getting some shots of the snowman I turned to head back to the house and this knot in one of the vertical planks of our back porch stared me square in the face.  It begged me to photograph it.
  I really liked the way exposing for the dark wood and using a very small depth of field washes out the snow completely helping to draw even more attention to the knot on the wood.
