Snow and More Snow

Sony Nex-7 w/Leica 35mm f2 ISO 12800 at f2

Last night as I drove home in near blizzard conditions a hauled out the Nex-7 to see if I could get some cool shots. As you can see the shutter speed was pretty slow but it was pretty dark. For small images on a computer screen the resolution is not to bad. I was surprised by the results. The focus was set to infinity hoping to get as much in focus as possible. To bad the shutter speed was to slow.

As I got closer to home there was more snow on the road and as I was going slow so I tried to focus on the car in back of me through my rear view mirror. I was very rushed as you can image and I was trying to do it with the camera in Live View. What a pain trying to see what was fringed and what was not in about 15 sec. Kind of interesting but does not quite hit the mark. In hindsight I probably would have been able to make a better shot with my Canon G15 as the ISO goes up to 12800. Then with the auto focus and easier control of the shutter speed it just would have been faster and more accurate. Fun but a little dangerous.
