On the first day of 2020, I was scouting in the St-Anicet region. Suddenly a snowstorm started and I thought about giving up and returning home. And then I happened upon the ruin of the Presbyterian Church bordered by elegant trees in a nearby farmer’s field. I parked my car on the side of the road and installed my tripod. I used a zoom lens at 90 mm (35 mm eq,) to capture the scene. As the light meter is fooled with all that snow, and would return a too-dark image, I exposed to the right (ETTR) without blowing the highlights. In postprocessing, I decided to reduce the exposure by 1 stop and do a black & white photo. Even in bad weather there are always occasions for good shots.
