Into the SNOW
Posted By: cb750r, 11-09-2009, 09:53 AM

These are some shots from yesterdays adventure to find the snowline!

Green Lake, Whistler BC with what I think is Wedge mountain in the background

Top of the 3000ft ascent up the Duffey Lake rd, to find the snow!

Joffre Lakes is 3 lakes fed by the Joffre Glacier, this is the river from the middle lake to the lower lake

My wife and I both voted:

Her: #1 WOW, #2 WOW, #3 WOW, #4 WOW!

It's an eight-way tie!

I really need to work out decent Snow settings for my KM, it made a lot of dingy grey shots of crisp white snow. How does the second attempt look?

Absolutely lovely shots, makes me yearn for that 1st significant snow fall.

For ideas on shooting snow, check out the General Photography - Techniques & Styles area.

Well done with these.
The last 2 of the first series and the last one of the second are brilliant captures.
What a gorgeous environment to behold!

Damn Brit

The second shot is a very good composition, it has a lot of 'life' in it. By that I mean that it is very dynamic and sucks the viewer in.
