12.30.2022 An island in the snow

There is a bit of light snowfall going on which you can sort of see in the darker foreground.

  1. In the enlargement I do see the snow. I couldn’t really make it out in the smaller version.

    The snow dusting the lone rock in the water is an especially nice touch. It’s a beautiful setting; black and white does suit snowy landscapes.

    • Deciding whether to go black and white is sometimes a challenge but the lack of color in a winter landscape makes it a little easier. That rock balanced everything out. The scene might have been a little sterile without it.

    Absolutely gorgeous. This is such a beautiful photograph. That light dusting of snow does so much to affect the feel of the photo and the composition is very well balanced, from the reflections to the rock in the water and the smaller clump of trees on the right. So nice!

    • Thanks, Todd! It was a beautiful and enjoyable few moments while I made the image and several others similar on this day. Sometimes I get lucky and am in the right place at the right time.

    • It has and I try to be good to it. 🙂 Thanks!

      Maybe posthumously? LOL I tend to stay in the west, south (where the park is), and north parts of the watershed but if I want to do a book, which I do, I need to start visiting the east portion as well.
