The Perfect Light for Snow Photography

Today had it!


Conversation with Purgatory Brook

I love this light.  Clouds obscuring the sun, but not completely.  Just enough coming through to bring up texture and slight shadows.  I love this brook.  I go to shoot the falls, but so far no success.  The brook however, I manage to get.  Shot with the E-30, ZD 12-60mm and the tripod sunk in snow.  It was so quiet that almost all you could hear was ice pellets and tiny hemlock cones falling on the crusty snow and rolling downhill.  That and the brook, still alive and flowing under its icy shell.

  1. Great shot! Love the tones, and I agree the light was great. The composition is very well done too, with the inclusion of the tree on the left it gives the viewer real feet into the scene. Great job.
