[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to the Trek Nature Photography Community! This photo was taken near Moraine Lake looking towards the South Sister in central Oregon after an early October snowstorm that kept us cooped up in the tent for 48 hours.
The tracks are ours from exploring our fresh white wonderland.

Hello Tim,
A gorgeous winter scene with the sun's rays illuminating the trees and distant mountains. The heavy snow drapes the branches in a thick blanket of white. Excellent detail and just the right exposure!! Great work!! "Merry Christmas"

Hello Tim,
You chose very beautiful landscape for postcard with splendid winter view.
Merry Christmas for You!

Hi Tim,wonderful view of the area near Moraine Lake,an iconic area for killer images anywhere in North America.On the subjective and emotional level this photo shows such a lovely and peaceful place it almost boggles the imagination as if reality were suspended and yet here it is with your well exposed and composed photo,a photo that is a total joy to behold.For as long as I have eyes,I'll always enjoy photos that show mountain vistas and even more so winter shots of the same.The trees look like silent sentinels waiting for their time to be free of winter's shackles and to live in the full once more in the spring,yet they just put up with the weather and show such dignity while they wait. A fresh, white wonderland indeed and Tim,thanks for sharing it with us all!


Dear Friend, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2011.

Hi Tim
great view of this landscape. I like the sharpness, natural colours and composition.
Great shot!!
Marry Christmas,

Bonjour Tim,

Slendid lensscape shot at the right moment where shadows and highlights create nice volume and perspective. Composition is well blanced and the trail add a human presence and emphase the vanishing point. I personnally beleive it is a bit warm on my monitor, but it could be only a difference of monitor calibration, nothing that reduce the value and the quality of your image. It is well worth a dark green smile and even more. Great work and TFS.


By the way, you got splendid images on your website.
