Considering that it was snowing my preferred viewpoint for taking pictures was from the inside of my car. This photo was taken at a stop light in Fayetteville.
Basic editing was done on Picasa 3- cropping, color correcting, signing
I got rid of of distractions using the clone and smudge tools on GIMP
The borders were added from PhotoScape
(Both PhotoScape and GIMP are freeware that I downloaded from cnet.com)
