Twenty degrees. The heavy snow has stopped, for now. An occasional flake floats down now and again. Thick gray clouds block the sun. Perfect day for a hike, not so perfect for photography. I snap photo after photo anyway.
Back on my computer, the screen shows me what the camera captured: gray, monochromatic, dull. I suppose that IS what it looked like.
I am not satisfied. It is not a good representation of my memory of the day. I load the picture into Lightroom and play with the settings until the image matches my memory.
I mess with the other photos similarly.
But photographs can never really capture the beauty of our memories! ~Emily Schlick
