Winters End by David Robb

March 2020 - Winters End

About the Image(s)

Nikon D750, iso/100, f/18, 1/250, handheld, manual.

The last run of the day today. Sun Valley Idaho.

I was struggling to come up with a shot that I thought was PSA worthy. 4 o’clock light, some what overcast and nothing was singing to me. Till I found these patterns, only a hum, in the mountains of receding snow and tree lines along with the grade of the mountains.

It is very beautiful landscape. High light, mid tone and shadow can be seen clearly. Texture provides the cold, at the same time, I receive the warmth from the sun.   Posted: 03/10/2020 07:43:49

I like this very much. Love all the different shades. If it was all snow, don't think it would have been that interesting.   Posted: 03/11/2020 10:01:49

I agree about the snow. Though skiing would of been better ).   Posted: 03/12/2020 13:37:25

Great place to be but it must have been cold. Here's another version.   Posted: 03/15/2020 15:45:29

Improved cloud reflections on the snow, definition.. I was struggling with that when editing and balancing with the rest of the image.   Posted: 03/26/2020 13:57:18

Nice shadows. Sol's enhanced contrasts and brightness are good, but I would like something in between the almost flat light of yours and the brightness of Sol's. Beautiful mountains, though.   Posted: 03/15/2020 16:15:05

David, nice lines in this scenic. The clouds might be intensified. Great place to be.   Posted: 03/17/2020 14:00:48

I like the patterns made by the bare spots on the hillsides.I do think it looks somewhat flat. A boost in contrast could be added.   Posted: 03/17/2020 23:00:42
