    Reported by:

    The picture was taken with a point and shoot camera by Sony while coming from Crozet to Charlottesville at the end of a road trip on a stormy night with a heavy snow storm. My wife was really excited about the colors and the way the snow was splashing on our car. She spontaneously took out the camera we had back then and asked me to shoot as I was sitting on the front passenger seat.

    I wonder if this isn't all the better for having been shot with a "cheap" camera. The slow shutter speed and confused white balance, where the camera chose to correct the normally yellowish car headlights, leaving the rest of the shot unnaturally blue, worked together to create an great feeling.
