[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken from the side of the road, Highway 20, just west of Tombstone Pass in the western Oregon Cascade Mountains. It's about an hour and a half from my home in Salem. An unexpected spring snowstorm provided unexpected but welcome picture material. It's been a long, gray, wet winter here. Being the experienced photographer that I am ( not!) I forgot I had a polarizer filter on the camera! However the results are kind of interesting.

I used a -0.33 compensation.

We had rain instead of snow today, in Monreal's région. I like that photo because it has a dramatic atmosphere. IMHO. And that little tree in the middle add a depth of field.


And that snow was such a surprise here, we even had a school delay of 2 hours last week. The Gorge mountains are still frosted with the white stuff, it's so beautiful, I hate to see winter end, well not exactly, I love spring so. This photo does capture the beauty of a winter treescape, well done.

What a weekend of snow can do to your gallery! Almost out of photos and then you're lucky with the sudden change in weather. This is an other great photo, with excellent detail and POV. I realy like the snow against the dark sky.
Is the -0.33 a filter?

I love the color and the POV on this one, Evelynn.
I agree with you that the filter adds a certain mood to the picture. Another winterland classic. TFS. : )

Gorgeous color and detail! It really is enchanting- this and some of your other snow scenes. It looks like something you would encounter in Narnia. The formidable sky with its murky deep color- nice touch with the filter. Thank you, I like it.

I forgot I had a polarizer filter on the camera! Well, I've done the same thing many times. I find that most software, you can adjust for light and other situations. So, I don't use filters. Usually because I forget to bring the few that I have. I do use UV filter to protect the lens. Great photo and interesting galleries.

Great capture Evelynn, love the low POV on this one. Very nice work.

beautiful, Evelynn!!!
