More Focus on Winter

Winter continues on..... So I thought I'd post some more shots of winter in my town. The last few days have really been dreary. These photos evoke that mood, I think. That' s January for you!
I had my white balance set wrong when I started shooting. Thank goodness for RAW!


This bench is not looking very inviting today! Settings: 1/320 at f/5.6 100 ISO. 24-70L lens.




This is a shot of the Bountiful Tabernacle. It was built in 1862 and is still used for church services each Sunday.

Settings: 1/640 at f/4.5. 100 ISO 24-70L lens.
