"Cold as Ice" (Ice Crystals on Window) Nikon D300, 70mm, F/8, 1/200s, ISO 400

White Balance, that is.

It is so cold outside that sheets of ice crystals are forming on our windows! 

The patterns are pretty darn cool, especially when backlit by the sun, however, when photographed using Auto or even a Daylight white balance setting, all sense of  coolness is completely lost.

Hmmmm, what to do?

No worries grasshopper… this one is easy. 🙂  

Switch to Incandescent white balance and boom!

Instant feeling of brrrrrr.


  1. What a fantastic photo. Thanks for sharing and happy new year!

    • Why, thank you Peter! Much appreciated!
      A happy and healthy New Year to you as well! 🙂

  2. It’s interesting to visit a blog of someone so close by, who is going through the same weather, and to see how you too have been affected by the climate.

    • YES! So true! I have found much inspiration in your photos. A good shot in the arm that I desperately needed today! Thanks!
