A Cold December Morning (23)

I thought the countryside might be picturesque when there was a heavy frost one recent morning. I decided to go out and take some photos. I had the scene I wanted pictured in my mind and this was the closest to that image.
I almost always use aperture priority and chose an aperture of f11 to get a good depth of field. The light was good, but the shutter speed forced me to use a tripod. I used an ISO of 100 to retain the best quality.

F11, 1/100 sec, 180mm

Simply adjusted the gamma a bit (and maybe could have pushed it a bit further) just to bring out more of the shadows from the low angle of the sun.
