[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After 36 hours of being holed up in our tent, we awoke to this scene. You can see by the drifted snow that we had some pretty good wind while we were there. Fortunately in the tail end of the storm the wind subsided and allowed for snow to bring a fresh carpet on the trees.
The original RAW file was double processed for highlights and shadows, then merged in Paintshop Pro 12.

I've loved this series of my state. You have the magic touch for finding the dramatic scenes. Of course you do work at it. I might balk at 36 hours in a tent. That was quite a freak early snow. I don't think we've had much more in the mountains since then. I love the light in this shot. I can almost feel the cold. Nice work.

Evelynn : )

WOnderful shot! Great light and dark.
WOW! Holed up in the tent for 36 hours...you guys must really love each other. ha ha That's close quarters for quite some time. :)

Holy cow...I have only seen it on TV...but I have repressed the memories...although I did do this one winter...for 2 months at 20 below, it was in a tipi. You sure have caught my attention here. I hope others will see and know what you experienced.

Hi Tim,
Happy to hear you made it out alive.
Beautiful winter seen. Your processing was very effective.
Evelynn can almost feel the cold, I can almost feel and smell the wet snowy mits. What a cool adventure. No pun intended. :-)


Fascinating scene. It really warmed up my heart
what a nice time you had. I think you exprienced exeptional moments between those snow and storm.However it is a really good picture.

Thanks for sharing
