Sure, the rich summer meadows and rainbow spectrum of wildflowers may be a bit more exciting in a landscape shot, but there’s something calming to me about Mount Shuksan in the dead of winter.   Walking through compact snow that muffled each crunch of my boots,  finding beautiful frozen objects with each turn, I quickly forgot it was below freezing.  The fact that I had been cold didn’t even register until I was hit with the sting of warming fingers back in the car.   I just love this time of year!

    1. I appreciate that Mike. 🙂 There were some obvious challenges to getting a shot that is half shade, half sun. And all snow. Like I mention in a previous comment, I just need more equipment.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Nigel. I actually have a couple of versions of this with various shades of blue. It was hard to pick one that I was totally satisfied with – especially when you’ve been editing for a while and everything starts to look the same. I had a different perspective on it tonight when I looked at it again, too.

    1. Aw, thank you for the compliment, Lisa. 🙂 I feel like I have still have a long way to go and need a lot more equipment. Photography can easily become an expensive hobby.

  1. I sure like this shot 😀 I love the winter wonderland kind of an esq-ness it gives off! makes me want to go out there spend hours standing there enjoying the scene and walking around 🙂
