Pastel Snow Scene: December Waiting

Hello everyone!

I am continuing to work on my Pastel ColorPlay series, but as promised, here is a little something I worked on recently.  

I was inspired by the recent snows we received. 

And believe it or not, I didn’t have ANY reference photos with snow in them!!

So…that was soon rectified when I decided to snap photos with my phone as my hubby drove along the highway on a wintry day.

I happened to catch this photo:

While I love the composition of this photo, the day was very overcast and there wasn’t much color in the scene.

So I used my ipad’s edit function to punch up the colors–mainly in the fallen leaves and ground cover.  
(Unfortunately, my iPad wouldn’t save these changes, so I can’t show you the revised photo.)
