While traveling the backroads from Whitman County (super east side of Washington) to Spokane County (central east side of Washington) we hit a crazy winter phenomenon that can only be described as "driving through a perpetual eye of a snow storm." The visibility was two telephone poles in any direction. It was snowing, around us, but not in front or behind us. And it was so cold, 2*F-10*F, that if the snow hit the blacktop it was as if it was immediately freeze-dried and became a light glittery dust. Typically on a shot like this, I would go to my tools of dodging and burning to make the road look worn. I didn't here. The dust of snow in the ruts of the road made for the perfect worn road look naturally. To capture the detail of the scene, especially because I was surrounded by white, this was a 3 bracketed 3+- EV exposure, and then blended down to create an HDR image.
A gamer's way to describe this feeling; as a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, I often make game reference. In this case, it was as if we hit a real life loading screen, and was driving perpetually on a road in the Animus.
