[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Winter holds on late in the Glacier high country. This was taken one week into summer and winter is just losing its grip on Ptarmigan Lake. The trail to Ptarmigan Pass and Tunnel was still blocked.

Hi Evelyn

Greetings from a very, very wet Madeira.

Great composition with excellent detail. I like the patterns of melting snow and ice very much. Well seen and captured.

Hi Evelynn!

Great how the snow on water meets the reflections of snow. You always get the best reflections. Beautiful shot, TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Evelynn, beautiful winter capture from a well chosen pov to capture this scene. I am surprised though that you have used such a high ISO considering the lens. Nerver the less clarity and sharpness are excellent. Well done.

Hello Evelynn,
The melting snow formed a beautiful pattern over the lake!
beautiful colour contrast between the land and the white snow!
nice piece of landscape
many thanks for sharing

Nicely composed landscape. Good use of foregorind interest using the trees. Well exposed. Looks cold. :)

Hi Evelynn,
wonderful portrayal of what looks like a pristine wilderness. Very good POV, exposure is excellent and i particularly like the slight reflection of the snow in the water. Winter has barely even turned up this year in the southern half of the UK..

Hello Evelynn

I would think for the places that depend on this glacial water for drinking it is a good thing that it holds on.
I saw a story about glaciers that scientists are covering on hot days to try and stop them from melting too soon.
Very beautiful capture.
The focus is sharp and the details are excellent.Very good colours and lighting.

Hi Evelynn,
I think you have a great sensibility and your pictures show this, here you give us a beautiful landscape vary well composed and with very nice colours, really beautiful
kind regards

Hi Evelynn,
Paul mentioned it already, but it atracked me immediately as well. The slight reflection of the not visable posts of snow in the rippled water are wonderful. I think I can actually see an entire mountain in the reflection.
Being that this photo was taken early summer, you must have been high up in the mountains.
A tricky one on the exposure, but you nailed it.

hai evelynn,
the combination of the glaciers over the mountain adds to an exotic view to the scape!!i am new to TN and i have posted some of my newly taken pics....looking forward for ur guidance and suggestions!


Very beautiful winter scene, well done!
